Browns may get to interview Arizona DC Todd Bowles, according to Jason LaCanfora

Reports have suggested that Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles (picture his time with the Philadelphia Eagles) had turned down the Cleveland Browns among others for the opportunity to be their head coach.  Jason LaCanfora has suggested that might not be true and Bowles may end up interviewing for the job.

The overwhelming front runner is believed to be Josh McDaniels, the offensive coordinator of the New England Patriots.  LaCanfora has said he would be shocked if it was not McDaniels who is hired for the job.  Nevertheless, the Browns have reached out to other candidates such as Bowles, Adam Gase of the Denver Broncos and Dan Quinn of the Seattle Seahawks.

Skeptics have already and will continue to suggest that this interview and many others will attempt to use Bowles or a candidate like Bowles to satisfy the NFL’s Rooney Rule, but that his chances of landing a job go little further.  Ultimately, it remains to be seen but the NFL has and will continue to push teams to interview as many minority candidates as possible.

    Well what do you think of the Three Stooges now? I am questioning why Lumbago never seems to be at any of the pressers!?? If McDaniels will except the job, I think it’s his! I’m just wondering if they will draft Manziel now that it looks like Turner is gone, as he wouldn’t be the typical Turner QB.??
    I still don’t trust the FO !! But I will, begrudgingly give them next year , with 10 draft picks and 30 million to the cap for free agents, they better turn this outfit around! As I said in the PD with the other amateur bloggers, they don’t need to be AFC Champions or win the Super Bowl, but there had better be a large improvement !!!
