With the announcement that new Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has been approved by the rest of the NFL's elite to buy the team and with the news that team president Mike Holmgren will retire at the end of the season, general manager Tom Heckert reportedly is nervous about his future.
That's according to Fox Sports Ohio, which is reporting that Heckert is telling those close to him that he expects to be out as the team's GM at the end of the season. Heckert also reportedly has been calling around to friends for other NFL jobs since August.
Meanwhile, Haslam will bring in former Eagles executive Joe Banner as the new Cleveland team president and CEO.
On Tuesday, Haslam said that he "had a great visit with (Heckert) and … his team on Sunday. So everybody is aware of the situation. I didn't tell them any different than anything I said today. This is the only change we're making. We're only making it so that we have a good transition. And everybody else will be evaluated the end of the year."
