Browns name Lombardi VP of personnel

The Browns announced they have hired NFL Network analyst Mike Lombardi as their vice president of player personnel.

He is a former personnel executive for the Browns who spent most of his NFL career (eight seasons from 1999 to 2007) in the player personnel department of the Raiders. During his time with the Browns (1987-95), he oversaw decisions with the draft and pro personnel as well as managed salary-cap issues.
