Anybody who is everybody is at the NFL’s Scouting Combine this weekend – including Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslem.

Also at the combine? Haslem’s flip phone.

Seriously – they still make those?!

Using what could only be described a $30 dollar Wal-Mart special, Haslem was spotted checking out the screen on his flip phone today by NFL Network while drinking a Diet Coke and eating some snack.

Now – I understand technology isn’t the easiest for everybody (especially the eldery) and I don’t expect every grandmother walking around to have the latest iPhone or Android device. But, as an owner of a professional sports team? Where news breaks on social media before front office members even know the story? You’d think he’d take the time to learn how to use a touch screen phone.

Hopefully for the Browns, his success in the upcoming NFL Draft is better than his success with technology.

At least it’s better than the extremely old school RAZR phone used by San Francisco Giants general manager Brian Sabean.
