The executive gave his quick critique of the Browns to say, "I'd expect Joe [Banner] to see the same things that I do."
He said Banner is "mostly a business guy, a strong salary cap guy . . . he's not going to be in the draft room telling them who to pick. He lets the football people do their jobs."
Banner is known for some disputes with players over contracts, and doesn't like to "overpay for veterans who only have one to two years left."
The executive believes Heckert will remain as general manager. He said it's too early to guess about the future of the coaching staff or other changes Haslam/Banner might make.
"But Haslam comes from the Steelers [where he was a minority owner] and they like stability," he said. "Banner was with the Eagles, and they operate the same way. These guys will make changes, but they won't just do it for the sake of change. I really think the Browns are headed in the right direction."
