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.
I went to some of these NFL events in my town over the weekend. It was pretty cool got to meet a lot of NFL players. It did not take me long to notice that anything that you bought,(tix,gifts, etc) either had to be cash or strictly the Visa credit card.
