As promised by Mike Holmgren he is setting up the Cleveland Browns front office in rapid fashion. It is expected that current Philadelphia GM Tom Heckert could be named the Browns GM as early as Monday. This all depends on how the Eagles fair in the opening playoff match up with the Dallas Cowboys.
Heckert is no stranger to Cleveland. His father Tom Sr. was a scout for the Browns back in the early 80’s when Sam Rutigliano was the head coach. The younger Heckert has never worked with Holmgren but has worked with Andy Reid who tutored under Holmgren in Green Bay.
The Borowns did interview Will Lewis on friday to comply with the Rooney Rule. Lewis is the current Pro Personnel Director in Seattle but that coild change with rumored hiring of Pete Carroll in Seattle as their new head coach.
