The NFL will launch an investigation on the Cleveland Browns, who have allegedly received text messages on the sidelines during games.

The Cleveland Browns had a rough ending to their season after starting out with a 7-4 record and looking like a playoff contender as they lost their last five games.
They may be in even worse trouble since text messages have allegedly been sent to the Browns sideline during games. Electronic communication is forbidden on the sidelines during games.
This incident is reportedly a reason why offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan left after one season. The punishment that would be handed down is unknown, but this could spell doom for the Browns if this is discovered to be true.
SportsCenter released the news on this latest negative development for the Browns on Twitter.
