With only one hour until Mike Holmgren's first live press conference with the media, rumors are flying around Cleveland about the fate of Cleveland Browns head coach, Eric Mangini. But one story could seal his fate later on today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Philadelphia Eagles GM, Tom Heckert is in Cleveland interviewing for the Cleveland Browns general manager position. What makes his story so interesting is that the Browns were interested in Heckert last  year, but didn't want to come to Cleveland because of Mangini. As a side note, Heckert has the same agent as Holmgren.

Does this mean Mangini is on his way out of Cleveland? Or is Holmgren the ultimate mediator?
