Sounds like potential differences between Collins and Savage to where they just want Savage to pick the players.
If this is true, this is complete and total bullhockey. Just the fact that this is swirling around is really pissing off this Browns fan. Savage was hired to be the GM, that's what his job should be. That should absolutely include contract negotiations with the players. If he goes, good luck finding a highly regarded GM to come to town.
Edit - Well, John Collins called in to WTAM and said that nobody is going anywhere. THANK GOD.
If the trend continues I see Kentucky making a big 4th Quarter comeback in the near future because Florida had the same thing happen to them in the Florida-Miami a few weeks ago when Florida gave up 20 point in the last 20 minutes to lose the game.
