The Browns are still looking for the right man to run their offense, and they might be looking to Green Bay for another candidate.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Packers offensive coordinator Tom Clements could be on the radar, though they haven’t asked permission to interview him yet.
While a coordinator-to-coordinator move is lateral, Clements isn’t calling the Packers’ plays (head coach Mike McCarthy does that).
The Packers routinely denied permission to interview Clements when he was their quarterbacks coach, but they have some other options in house. The Rams want to interview quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt for their coordinator job as well.
The Browns have also interviewed Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn, and are interviewing Raiders senior assistant Al Saunders this week.
Whoever takes the job will be the sixth man in six seasons, so we hope he rents rather than buys.
