For the past several years, it seemed at times inevitable that former NFL quarterback Bernie Kosar would take a job with the Browns. At one point, he was rumored to be in line for the G.M. position.
Wisely, team president Mike Holmgren decided upon taking the job in 2010 to minimize the influence of the Browns’ former players, which meant freezing out Kosar.
Now, Kosar could be taking a job with a team other than the Browns.
Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe (via Cleveland.com) reports that Kosar has been “poking around” the Patriots, and that Kosar “hopes to get into coaching.” A connection between Kosar and Pats coach Bill Belichick would be curious to say the least, given that Belichick bounced Bernie out of Cleveland.
Meanwhile, Tony Rizzo of WKNR reports that the Bengals have been talking to Kosar about a position.
Maybe, given Carson Palmer’s desire to be traded, the position is starting quarterback.
