Paolantonio: Reid & Roseman's Power Grows, Banner Looking To Buy Team

ESPN's Sal Paolantonio has been all over his Eagles sources in the wake of Joe Banner's departure and got some tidbits on the new structure of the front office. Not surprisingly, new president Don Smolenski will not take on all the responsibilities that Banner had. All football, personnel, contract & cap management responsibilities will now be exclusively under Andy Reid and Howie Roseman.

"The new team president will no longer be involved in the day to day operations of cap management, player negotiations and acquisitions," an unnamed senior team official told Paolantonio. "That will all now be the responsibility of Coach Reid and the general manager's office."

As for what Joe Banner plans to do now? He said that he was going to pursue a "major new opportunity" which, according to Sal Pal is buying a team.

Banner said that he is "open to L.A. I don't want to single them out, but that's something I think I can do - set up a franchise, help build a stadium, hire a coach, hire good people to build a a winning organization."

So Jaguars fans, Saints fans, Vikings fans.... look out. Joe is coming after your team.
