Cleveland ended the season losing six of their final seven games. The Browns became the first NFL team to be swept by an expansion team, losing twice to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Modell announced on November 6, 1995, that he had signed a deal to relocate the Browns to Baltimore in 1996—a move which would return the NFL to Baltimore for the first time since the Colts relocated to Indianapolis after the 1983 season.

Modell's plan was later scrapped and taxpayers ultimately paid close to $300 million to demolish the old stadium and construct a new stadiumfor the 1999 Expansion Browns on the site of Municipal Stadium.
