Tom Heckert Thinks He’s About to Be Out as Browns GM

Multiple sources have told FOXSportsOhio.com that Browns general manger Tom Heckert has told people close to him that he believes he’ll lose his position with the team at the end of the season, and that Heckert was making calls to friends around the league as early as August about potentially landing on another team’s personnel staff in 2013.

Heckert worked for the Miami Dolphins before working nine years for the Eagles and has connections throughout the league. Heckert and Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson worked together with the Eagles before landing in their current roles, Heckert in early 2010 and Grigson early this year. Grigson was the Eagles’ director of college scouting from 2006-09, the same four years Heckert served as the Eagles general manager. At a news conference during this year’s draft, Heckert called Grigson one of his best friends.

Banner’s NFL experience comes with the Eagles, too, but NFL administration changes usually mean sweeping changes, and those on the personnel side of the Holmgren/Heckert administration have been preparing for a shakeup, sources said. Heckert’s relationship with Banner is not known.

    Why? Cleveland has finally started drafting well — and it has occurred under Heckert’s direction. UDFA’s and late round picks are finding their ways onto the field — and playing well. Let the man work. He’s done more than OK.
