Heckert to interview with Browns Wednesday

Jay Glazer is reporting that Eagles GM Tom Heckert with meet with new Browns' football Czar Mike Holmgren about their GM opening tomorrow.

Philadelphia Eagles general manager Tom Heckert is slated to be in Cleveland Tuesday night to meet with Holmgren regarding the vacant GM position, FOXSports.com has learned.

Heckert was also coveted for the same post by the Browns years ago before they hired Phil Savage, but at the time Heckert elected to stay in Philadelphia. Savage lasted in Cleveland until the end of the 2008 season, then was replaced by first-year GM George Kokinis — was was fired in early November.

Les Bowen seems to think it's unlikely Heckert will see Cleveland as a good fit.

I'm told Tom Heckert only wants the Cleveland GM job if he gets final say over personnel. Hard to see that working out with Mike Holmgren.

It would appear to be a lateral move in every sense of the word for Heckert. If Mike Holmgren doesn't have final say over personnel, that what is he there for? It seems clearly that Heckert would be under Holmgren just like he's under Reid here. Either way, the Eagles have granted permission for the meeting to take place.
