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 was love at first sight for the Eagles, and it evolved into a burning passion to land the little-known quarterback from the far-away place. That mission was finally accomplished Thursday night when the Eagles used the second overall pick on North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz. Howie Roseman, the team's executive vice president of football operations, and Doug Pederson, the team's rookie head coach, said the Eagles would have made the trade with the Cleveland Browns to get the second pick even if Cal's Jared Goff had been the prize at the end. But they also admitted that Wentz was always the object of their desire.

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 shoved in all their chips Wednesday, and now they will get the guy they wanted without the guarantee of a jackpot return. Time will tell how Howie Roseman played this hand, but it is already clear that he felt this move was worth making only for two of the quarterbacks on the draft board. That might have been the Eagles' biggest mistake. After consulting with owner Jeffrey Lurie, head coach Doug Pederson, the scouts, the assistant coaches, and perhaps anybody else who wanted to offer an opinion down at One NovaCare Way, the team's resurrected chief of decision-making threw a whole bunch of draft picks at the Cleveland Browns for the right to make the No. 2 overall selection in next week's NFL draft.

FOR BETTER, for worse, this will always be the Carson Wentz draft. Wentz was back home in North Dakota by the time Howie Roseman hunkered down at NovaCare Saturday to make the final six selections of the Eagles' 2016 class, but the quarterback's presence was keenly felt. Roseman sat through the first three hours Saturday - the entire fourth round, and 13 picks worth of the fifth - before making his initial selection of the afternoon, West Virginia running back Wendell Smallwood, by way of Wilmington, Del.,153rd overall.

Oh, the drama, the intrigue, the excitement. Will Sam stay? Will Sam go? Is Sam afraid to compete for his job? Is it really possible Howie is going to be perceived as the tough guy who stared down a quarterback and agent? Carson or Jared? Enjoy it, folks. This is as good as 2016 is going to get for your Philadelphia Eagles. I do not know exactly how this soap opera is going to play out beyond the likelihood that the Eagles are going to use the No. 2 overall selection Thursday to take Carson Wentz after the Los Angeles Rams make Jared Goff the first overall pick.

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.
