Banner makes earlier than expected exits from Browns

In the same radio interview during which Browns president Alec Scheiner said that the team will introduce new “cutting-edge” uniforms next year, Scheiner made another revelation.

As explained by Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, former CEO Joe Banner has made his final exit earlier than expected.  Previously, Banner was due to leave in May.

“He’s transitioned and he’s looking forward to what he does next,” Scheiner told 92.3 The Fan’s Bull & Fox.  “In the building, we’re working with our group now.”

In an interview with Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Banner said that he’s not sure what he’ll do next.

“My plan at this point is to take an extended period of time, to step back and reevaluate the time I’ve been in the league and where I am in my life and then make a decision as to whether my future would include the NFL or not,” Banner said.

Banner has plenty of time to make a decision, since he’ll be paid for the balance of his contract with the Browns.

    Those two contradictory paragraphs pretty much sum up the Cleveland Browns……

  2. The Browns are grateful that there is no salary cap for coaches and front office people.

  3. I cant believe this genius hasnt been snapped up by another NFL team yet…

    /sarcasm

  4. “My plan at this point is to take an extended period of time, to step back and reevaluate the time I’ve been in the league and where I am in my life and then make a decision as to whether my future would include the NFL or not,” Banner said.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, Joey Nickles……but sounds like that decision has been made for you.

  5. Anyone who is dumb enough to hire him to run their football operations or play an integral role in it should have their franchise license revoked by the NFL and put up for auction.

  6. How Banner, as a lame duck, could have stayed in office and worked with the new team is beyond the pale of reason.

    How they didn’t announce he was gone before would be hard to understand for any other team. But this is the Browns and we’ve come to expect amateur hour operations.

  7. change the name from the Cleveland browns to the Cleveland Titanics, the organization is sinking

  8. Stop for a moment and consider the deal they offered him…

    Not only will you no longer be apart of the Cleveland Browns….BUT THEY WILL ALSO PAY YOU TO DO IT.

    Congratulations Joe Banner for the smartest man of the year award!

  9. What’s he going to do next, not get a NFL job?

    He lost power in Philly and then left and got fired by Cleveland.

    What’s after this a rejection from the Raiders?

  10. “My plan is to take an extended period of time to step back and reevaluate the aesthetics of growing the hair real long on one side and swooping it over sideways to give the convincing illusion of a full, youthful head of hair”.

  11. can’t believe I’d say this, but Jerruh should hire him to manage his cap.. only thing Banner can do well.

  12. Joe wanted to see where he was, so he reflected on his life. It seemed like just yesterday when he came into the world. Then he realized he was looking ahead.

  13. “Then I’m going to build a space station that will be the ultimate power in the universe, blow up a planet and try to locate the secret rebel base,” he added.

  14. Yeah… all the stories out about this guy, whether they’re true or not, are going to seal his fate with the NFL. I doubt he’ll get another chance in the NFL,
