Hawks search as Holmgren introduced
By Mike Sando
The sight of Mike Holmgren standing before a Cleveland Browns backdrop -- NFL.com has the video -- doesn't look right just yet.
The former Seahawks coach and one-time general manager is a natural for these news-conference settings. He's likable, well-spoken, personable and disarming.
Seattle continues its search for a GM and has reportedly settled on five finalists -- 'candidates' might be the better word -- whose names have been mentioned throughout the process. One of them, the Eagles' Tom Heckert, has an interview scheduled with the Browns, Holmgren confirmed.
Steve Keim's name jumps off the list of Seattle candidates. He's built a solid reputation as the Cardinals' personnel director. He obviously has very strong knowledge of the division and what it might take to unseat Arizona.
