Browns recover lost championship trophy from 1946

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - The Browns have recovered a lost championship trophy from 1946.

The trophy, engraved with the names of six Hall of Fame players as well as coach Paul Brown, was one of two awarded to the team after the Browns won their first title in the defunct All-American Football Conference. It was found in a box in the garage of the grandson of one of the team's former minority owners in Raleigh, N.C. A member of the team's staff retrieved the trophy this week and showed it off on Friday.

Because the NFL didn't award permanent trophies until 1966 - two years after Cleveland won its last title - the 1946 trophy is the only one believed to exist for the team's eight championships.

Alumni relations manager Tony Dick said it's ''special that we have something that says we won a championship.''
