Browns owner Jimmy Haslam told USA TODAY Sports that the did in fact talk to the 49ers about trading for head coach Jim Harbaugh.
NFL.com wrote an article about the situation and implied that 49ers owner Jed York was dishonest when he claimed that they never talked to the Browns about trade Habaugh.
According to ProFootballTalk.com that article has since been edited.
The brave article on http://t.co/uO7NjmGLfG that criticized Jed York has been revised to remove the suggetion of potential dishonesty.

This isn’t a shock at all since NFL.com is a league owned and run website. They have to tread lightly when it comes to speculation, unlike us here at PFZ.
While it’s obvious York was lying, the NFL can’t bash their own owners on their website.
