Multiple media outlets reported Saturday that the Browns are expected to name Eagles general manager Tom Heckert to a similar position in Cleveland, and perhaps as early as Monday.

Heckert, who has been the Eagles' general manager for the last four years, interviewed for the Browns' GM position earlier this week, as did Seahawks director of pro personnel Will Lewis.

If Heckert, 42, departs for Cleveland, Eagles vice president of player personnel Howie Roseman, a key member of the front office, could assume some of his responsibilities.
