The Cleveland Browns announced this morning that NFL analyst Michael Lombardi is the team's new vice president of player personnel.

Lombardi worked with Bill Belichick in Cleveland during the '90s and has a history with Browns CEO Joe Banner from their time together in Philadelphia, reports NFL.com. He also worked for Al Davis and the Raiders from 1999 to 2007. Lombardi has been in the media since then, first with the National Football Post and then full-time with NFL Network and NFL.com.

From the NFL's story:

The Browns were expected to hire a general manager, and it sounds like Lombardi will essentially fill those responsibilities with a different title. Banner also might have some input, along with coach Rob Chudzinski. It will be interesting to hear at Friday's news conference who has "final say" on the roster.
