Dozens of FBI agents and the IRS raided the Knoxville, Tenn., headquarters of Pilot Flying J on Monday.
Normally, that wouldnt' have anything to do with football or the NFL, except that Pilot Flying J is owned by Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam.
It is not known exactly what government officials are investigating at this time, but in a statement to the Knoxville News-Sentinel, Haslam pledged his full cooperation in the matter.
“The FBI secured our headquarters today and informed us they are investigating Pilot Flying J. We will cooperate appropriately with any and all external investigations and conduct our own. I believe and trust there has been no wrongdoing. The integrity of our company always has been job No. 1," Haslam's statement said.
It is also not known what, if any, impact this could have on Haslam's ownership of the Browns.
