The Cleveland Browns have a relatively talented roster and boost the fourth overall pick in the upcoming 2014 NFL Draft.

One would assume their head coaching vacancy would be one of the more coveted available jobs around the league – at least on paper.

You get the increasing feeling, talking to people around the league, that the Browns job is seen as radioactive. Tough spot for them.

While a talented roster and an early first round pick seem like solid assets to have, the Browns organization has a rough history with coaches and haven’t exactly been patient with a lack of results – especially in recent years.

Add in that the Browns will likely need to develop a quarterback moving forward and what seems to be a high quality job may not be so perfect after all.

New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels has already turned down the job.
