Browns: No Money Discussed With Holmgren

The ongoing courtship of Mike Holmgren by the Cleveland Browns continues to be, well, ongoing. After reportedly offering him a "front-office position" Wednesday night, the team spokesman confirmed on Thursday that they are indeed talking with Holmgren, but no money has been discussed.

"We had a productive meeting over the course of couple days. We agreed to communicate again in the coming days. I can tell you the one thing we have not discussed to this point is money," Bonsiewicz said.

It has been widely reported that Holmgren's pricetag could be as high as $10 million a year.

A possible wrench thrown into this whole process is the Rooney Rule, but Bill Bonsiewicz, the team spokesman, said "We're aware of the Rooney Rule and have been in contact with the league office about it."

Holmgren spent Monday and Tuesday meeting with the Browns about a "czar" like position within the organization.
