Best Answer

the Cleveland Bulldogs

Answerthe Bulldogs were Canton's football team. there was a Cleveland Bulldogs franchise at one point when a Cleveland businessman bought the Bulldogs and combined them wih the Cleveland Indians, which he already owned and changed the Indians name to the Bulldogs. but it was a separate franchise and was never in anyway connected to the Cleveland Browns. the Browns have always been called the Browns since the team was founded in 1946. However, before that, Cleveland's NFL team was the Rams, who moved to Los Angeles after the 1945 season making way for the Browns, who started in the AAFC and then were brought over to the NFL in 1950.
