Scott Pioli put on the spot (Parcells Son-in-law)

The clock is ticking on Patriots [team stats] vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli, who today must decide whether he wants to take the Cleveland Browns’ offer to be their chief football executive, according to sources familiar with the negotiation.
The two sides met yesterday in New York, and parted company with no deal in place, but with the deadline established.
Club owner Randy Lerner made his pitch, and Pioli countered. According to one source, some within the Browns organization feel Pioli made demands so high that perhaps he really doesn’t want to leave the Patriots nest.
