Michael Lombardi comes back to the Browns as unpopular as the day he left.
He realizes there are Cleveland fans who still despise him and Bill Belichick for releasing popular quarterback Bernie Kosar in 1993. Lombardi knows there are skeptics who question his ability to evaluate talent after failed drafts in Oakland. He understands the doubts about him jumping back into a front office after five years on TV. Lombardi can’t change the past, so he’s moving forward.
