The Cleveland Browns have been a relative laughingstock for their front-office bungling their head coaching search after firing Rob Chudzinski after one season only to hire Mike Pettine after an extended search that included rumors of a trade for Jim Harbaugh to only see the people who hired Pettine fired shortly after his hiring.
One move the Browns can’t be criticized for is their work with two-time Super Bowl champion and Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells who is working as a courtesy consultant, according to NFL Media insider Gil Brandt. One of the first, if not the first duties for Parcells was to meet with former Louisville Cardinals quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
Parcells met w Teddy Bridgewater for 4.5 hours in Fla. Very impressed w QB’s humility, ftball knowledge, how well-spoken + secure he was

The Browns made headlines earlier in the week when it was revealed that they didn’t meet with any quarterbacks at the NFL combine in late February. Perhaps they were just waiting until Parcells could be a part of the process and he could lend his opinion on which prospect is the best fit if the team elects to draft one with the fourth overall selection in the 2014 NFL draft.
