The ink isn’t even dry on the $1 Billion deal that Jimmy Haslam signed to become the Browns new owner and he is already making major moves. 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.

Mike Holmgren built the Browns in a certain way, but it looks like it is about to be blown up.
