Tom Heckert hopes to join Andy Reid in next NFL venture

The ex-Browns GM is eyeing possibilities that could reunite him with Andy Reid.

Ex-Cleveland Browns general manager Tom Heckert and ex-Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid worked together for almost a decade in Philadelphia, and both were fired from their respective jobs immediately after the 2012 season ended. As they look for work, the two could potentially be reunited in a new city, which is a possibility that Heckert would relish, according to ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi.

Heckert told Grossi on Monday that it would be "phenomenal" if he could once again work with Reid, and admitted that it is "a possibility." It's suspected that Reid will be on the radar of various franchises with openings at head coach, and if he has a say in adding to the front office, it's possible that he could push for someone like Heckert to be hired.

Even if Heckert isn't reunited with Reid, it's hard to imagine him being out of the league for long. Though his tenure with the Browns never managed to turn the franchise around, his resumé with the Eagles remains strong.
