Browns continue GM interviews
By James Walker
The Cleveland Browns are moving fast on their search for a general manager.
According to ESPN.com NFL senior writer John Clayton, Will Lewis of the Seattle Seahawks is flying to Cleveland Thursday for a Friday interview with new Browns president Mike Holmgren. Lewis is Seattle's director of pro personnel and previously worked with Holmgren.
The Browns also interviewed Philadelphia Eagles general manager Tom Heckert on Wednesday.
Holmgren is having a busy first week on the job. He is expected to make a decision on the future of head coach Eric Mangini soon, and arguably Holmgren's best player, Pro Bowler Joshua Cribbs, is unhappy with contract negotiations.
