05:51 PM ET 04.21 | Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has said he will not step aside despite the FBI's continued investigation into his company Pilot Flying J and allegations that he knew about the alleged fraud. According to court documents, employees said Haslam knew about the company withholding rebates and discounts from some customers, but he remains committed to the company and his team. "I thought to myself, 'Well, why would I do that?' Candidly, I haven't done anything wrong, No. 1," Haslam said at the company's headquarters. "No. 2, if there's ever a time the company needs our leadership, it's right now."
