Former Browns GM Tom Heckert Finds Work with the Broncos


Former Browns general manager Tom Heckert, whose legacy with the team has yet to be determined, has found work with the Denver Broncos as the team’s new director of pro personnel.

Heckert has plenty of experience in that area and, other than the simple fact that a new owner wanted to clean house and build his own front office, really never should have been fired by the Browns in the first place.

Like other general managers before him, Heckert inherited an awful team in Cleveland. However, it was obvious that the Browns were heading towards some semblance of respectability, even after another disappointing 5-11 campaign.

In the NFL, like in every league, personnel expertise is a valued commodity, so it was only a matter of time before Heckert found a new job. Luckily for him, he’s going to a strong organization.
