Nothing going on here

Not at all.

Statement from Browns Owner Randy Lerner:

“John Collins has resigned his position as President and CEO of the Cleveland Browns. Phil Savage and Romeo Crennel will remain in their current roles and I will assume the responsibilities left open by John’s departure. It is my expectation that the role of President will be filled although there are no current candidates or time frame set to do so. My priority is to give the General Manager and Head Coach all the resources necessary to make the Browns successful.”

So I guess no one is going to ask why the entire sports media thought Phil Savage was going on Friday, but John Collins goes on Tuesday. Move along. UPDATE: After the Lerner statment, the Savage statement.

Statement from Browns Senior Vice President & General Manager Phil Savage:

“I came to Cleveland because of my belief in Randy Lerner, his integrity and his commitment to making the Cleveland Browns a championship team. I am excited about continuing as GM and am more committed than ever to this franchise and to helping the organization bring the Browns fans a winner.”

Translated – Lerner hired me, not Collins.
