Former Cleveland Browns general manager Tom Heckert has accepted a position as the Denver Broncos director of pro personnel, according to Albert Breer of NFL Network.

Heckert replaces Keith Kidd, who recently left the position.

Heckert was swept out as the Browns' new ownership made numerous changes to the coaching staff and front office in Cleveland after purchasing the team last fall.
