CLEVELAND (AP) - Browns CEO Joe Banner has called former Cleveland quarterback Bernie Kosar's on-air criticism of the St. Louis Rams "unprofessional."
During the TV broadcast of Thursday night's exhibition opener, Kosar, working as an analyst, made brutal comments about Rams third-string quarterback Kellen Clemens and the Rams receivers. Banner said the Browns "don't condone the personal and unprofessional approach that Bernie took with some of his comments during the broadcast." Banner said Kosar has been spoken to and "we would expect the situation is resolved moving forward."
The Browns said Kosar called Rams coach Jeff Fisher personally and apologized Sunday.
Fisher said Saturday that he had lost a lot of respect for Kosar, who has not been removed from his commentating job and is expected to be in the booth Thursday night when the Browns host the Chicago Bears.
