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.

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.

THE SOUL have reacquired wide receiver Jeff Hughley from Jacksonville for the rights to defensive back Kent Richardson. Hughley set the Soul record with 1,865 yards in kick returns in 2012 before signing with the Sharks. His return yardage dipped with the Sharks this season (1,095), but he had 82 catches, including 15 for touchdowns, as Jacksonville's third-leading receiver. The Soul have beaten Jacksonville in the American Conference championship game each of the last 2 years.

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.

Pederson has spent seven seasons as an NFL coach, and all have been under Reid.

Doug Pederson did not have a relationship with Jim Schwartz before hiring him as the Eagles' defensive coordinator in January. But Pederson knew the importance of that job, and Schwartz's track record. What Pederson needed to learn when the two met was how Schwartz would function in the role, considering Schwartz is a former head coach with a more extensive resumé than Pederson's. "There were certain questions I asked about that," Pederson said. "He fully understands his role, his situation.

This column was first published in August 2009. SHELBYVILLE. Ky. - Buddy Ryan's whistle pierced the Kentucky morning. "Yo," Ryan called across the back pasture, larger than a football field. "Come on. Come on. " Six horses looked across at the 75-year-old man standing at the fence, wearing a windbreaker and a New York Jets hat. Another whistle - this one loud enough to stop a train - got the thoroughbreds wandering over. "They think they're going to get fed," Ryan said.

From the moment he joined the Eagles as a front-office intern in 2000, fresh from Fordham Law School, Howie Roseman spent his formative years as an NFL executive helping his mentor usher in a revolution and bearing witness to the bitter fallout. As the Eagles' president then, and with Roseman working alongside him, Joe Banner pioneered the two-pronged strategy that became a staple of business in a salary-cap world. The Eagles would sign players whom they perceived to be part of their long-term future to cost-effective contracts, and they would be willing to say goodbye - maybe a little too soon - to some of their most popular, respected, and expensive veterans.

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.

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.

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.
