Heckert set to become GM in Cleveland



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.

    I’m so sick of hearing from all these whiners about the Rooney Rule. There are way more blacks in the NFL than whites. I want to see how blacks would feel about a “Must Tryout White Players First Rule”.

    I could not agree more… I am still waiting for The “United White People College Fund” Or the magazine “Ivory” My people just don’t get it!! It’s not about color that opens doors, it’s hard work and dedication. There is no such thing as a free lunch but some people insist on trying to get one anyway. I’m sorry.. Is what I said politically incorrect? Oh well!!
