Browns GM Tom Heckert has a chance to stay as the team’s GM after the season, per Fox. Rumors abound as to whether or not Michael Lombardi will take Heckert’s job.
“There’s really not a lot of substance to the conversation,” Lombardi said. “There’s just a lot of rumors and innuendos. There’s really nothing to it.”
Heckert was part of the staff that drafted key contributors like Trent Richardson, Brandon Weeden and Josh Gordon; the Browns have been competitive in a good number of the contests they’ve played this season, so a shake-up at the top may not be necessary.
