The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could move to Cleveland and become the Browns, freeing the current Browns to move to Baltimore to play as the Baltimore Buccaneers, according to broadcast reports yesterday. Numerous television and radio stations in Cleveland, Baltimore, Tampa Bay and Columbus, Ohio, reported variations of the same story, despite denials from Cleveland Mayor Michael R. White and Tampa Bay officials. "I've been in this business long enough to listen to anybody about just about anything," White said.

The first game of the 1999 NFL exhibition season - the annual Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio - will feature the Dallas Cowboys and the Cleveland Browns. That's right. The NFL owners decided yesterday to award Cleveland an expansion franchise to replace the team that bolted to Baltimore two years ago. There could be more soon. Today, owners will discuss adding another expansion team. Houston, another city abandoned by the league, appears to be the leading contender. Los Angeles and Toronto are also candidates.

CLEVELAND - When the Eagles defense was at its best on Friday, when it was so aggressive that the Cleveland Browns struggled to even hold the ball, the group appeared as fearsome as it has all preseason. That says as much about the concern presented in the first two preseason games as the opponent Friday, but the Eagles' 27-10 win was at least an auspicious effort from the defense. "With the exception of a couple plays, I thought the ones did a pretty good job," coach Andy Reid said, referring to the starters.

This is the time of year for hot guys in the NFL. The names and faces change annually, but by now, with the regular season having concluded Sunday, everyone knows this year's hot guys, the trendy candidates to fill the head coaching vacancies around the league, including the Eagles'. We could run a photo spread of them in The Inquirer and on Philly.com, and every football fan in the region would have an opinion about at least one of them: Hey, there's Adam Gase, the Chicago Bears' offensive coordinator, the guy who apparently made Jay Cutler a better quarterback.

The Eagles hired former quarterback and assistant coach Doug Pederson as head coach today in a nod by owner Jeffrey Lurie to the success and environment that the team had under Andy Reid.    Pederson, 47, has been Reid's offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs for the past three seasons. Before going to Kansas City, he was Reid's quarterbacks coach in Philadelphia after starting as a quality control coach. Pederson has spent seven seasons as an NFL coach, and all have been under Reid.

The Eagles will interview interim coach Pat Shurmur for their head coaching vacancy over the next few days, an NFL source said Sunday night. ESPN was first with the report. The network also reported that Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase would interview with the Eagles this week. Shurmur and Gase's candidacies don't come as much of a surprise. Shurmur stepped in for the fired Chip Kelly and won the Eagles' season finale over the New York Giants, 35-30, on Sunday. Gase has been credited with reviving quarterback Jay Cutler's career in only one season as Bears coordinator.

NFL linebacker Tom Cousineau said in an interview with the Cleveland Plain Dealer that despite persistent rumors, he is not a homosexual. Cousineau said he was not sure how the rumors began, although he suspected that they may have been generated by the grumblings of former Cleveland Browns teammates who were upset when he joined the team in 1982 as its highest-paid player. Cousineau's agent, John Geletka, also told the newspaper that the rumors led to Cousineau's release by the Browns in September.

The Eagles will hire Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson as their next head coach, league sources confirmed Thursday. Because the Chiefs are still in the playoffs, the Eagles must wait for their season to conclude before the move will be official. The Chiefs will play the New England Patriots on Saturday. "We have concluded our search for a new head coach," an Eagles spokesman said. "No further interviews are scheduled. " The selection of Pederson is a nod by owner Jeffrey Lurie to the success and environment that the team had under Andy Reid.

As in the interim head coach, Shurmur will take over all of Chip Kelly's duties, including the offensive play-calling.

The Eagles have lots of problems. Nobody is going to dispute that. The root causes of those problems, on the other hand, could be debated from noon until midnight. How much blame, for instance, should be placed on the draft during coach Chip Kelly's first three seasons as head coach? We don't know for sure how much input the coach had in the first two drafts when Howie Roseman still held the title of general manager, but Kelly has never been shy about distancing himself from the team's first-round selection of Marcus Smith in 2014.

Jordan Hicks returned to the Eagles locker room on Monday, sounding like he played for the 76ers. Hicks, the Eagles rookie inside linebacker, maybe their best and most important defensive player this season, had torn his left pectoral tendon Nov. 9 against the Cowboys, ending his season. This was not the first time he had suffered so traumatic an injury. At Texas, he'd torn an adductor muscle in his left leg one year and his left Achilles tendon the next, missing 19 games. That was hard, sitting out then.

GOOD MORNING. I am The Guy Who Still Has Hope for Sam Bradford. You might remember me from past roles, such as last year's Guy Who Still Has Hope for Nick Foles. Turned out, Chip Kelly did not share my view that Foles might have just been starting to come around when Foles suffered that broken collarbone, a year and a day ago. Kelly felt strongly enough about it to send Foles and the Eagles' 2016 second-round pick to the Rams for Bradford last March. Now, seven games into the 2015 season, it seems a decent chunk of the fan base, and some media folk, wouldn't mind moving on yet again.

There was sadness within him, nothing more or less. When he learned that Evan Murray, a 17-year-old quarterback at Warren Hills Regional High School in Washington, N.J., had died from football last Friday night, Miles Austin did not tie the tragedy to any aspect of his own life, his own experiences in the sport. He could have. The connections were apparent. During a game against Summit High School, Murray rose from the ground after a tackle, his teammates steadying him as he wobbled, and walked off the field before collapsing on the sideline.
