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.
Memo to ESPN: Keep Patrick, and execute Maguire and Theismann. Schnell! Patrick has game, but the other two have gone from annoying to nauseating. Quit your damn infighting in the booth, you yokels, and call the f*cking game.
