Ex-Eagles President Joe Banner To Join Browns Next Month
Joe Banner, longtime president of the Philadelphia Eagles and a figure keenly responsible for helping them construct a new stadium and reverse their fortunes on the field, will officially join the Cleveland Browns by late October, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports citing a source familiar with the transition plans of new Browns owner Jimmy Haslam. Banner has been working with Haslam since before his first discussion with Randy Lerner to purchase the team, the source said, and will be the top executive in the organization, beneath only Haslam.
The vote to approve Haslam's purchase of the team will be voted on during the NFL's annual fall meeting in October, and Banner will then assume his new role shortly thereafter. Current team president Mike Holmgren is expected to reach a settlement with the new group at some point to end his tenure there, while the source indicated that Haslam and Banner will take their time evaluating coaches and front office staff, and that major, immediate changes are unlikely beyond Holmgren's ouster. Haslam has been careful not make any moves until after the purchase become official.
