Schefter: Banner will have final say in all Browns moves

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter confirms what many had suspected: the Cleveland Browns roster of present and future has been turned over to recently named CEO Joe Banner.

Though Mike Holmgren and general manager Tom Heckert will remain in Berea through the season, and Heckert potentially beyond, it will be Banner who will oversee any moves that could potentially impact the team beyond the 2012 season.

  • Wow

    I love how Schefter “breaks news” that everybody already knew about.

    that’s the ESPN way…they hear about news from another source, and then have one of their own guys “break” the news crediting nebulous “sources”. Meanwhile the ESPN crawl says “ESPN’s (reporter name) reporting that…” when in actuality, it was originally reported by a reporter elsewhere who put the work in to get that info.

    Just another reason to avoid ESPN whenever possible

    They are the “Faux” news of sports reporting.
