Crennel's agent talking to Browns about contract extension
"It was really me calling them and just saying, 'Romeo is in his third year and he's obviously turned the program around. Is this going to be the guy that's going to be the face of the franchise and is he sticking around here for a long time?'" Crennel's agent Joe Linta told The Columbus Dispatch. "Obviously, if they don't end up doing something with him [within the next year], he'll end up becoming a lame duck."
Crennel is currently in the third year of a five-year contract with Cleveland. He has a 20-28 record with the Browns.
