According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, former Eagles president Joe Banner will take over for Mike Holmgren and become the Browns new president with Jimmy Haslam as the new owner.

“Haslam, who will divest his interest in the Steelers, will bring in former Eagles President Joe Banner to run the team once the sale is approved, league sources said. He said he’s talked to Banner, but wouldn’t confirm his involvement,” reported Cabot.

“I don’t own the team yet, so comments about current or future personnel would be unfair,” said Haslam.

I got a feeling the Browns will be an entirely new franchise within the next few years.
