Potential landing spots for McCloughan

Reporters at the NFL owners meetings in Florida caught up with Packers general manager Ted Thompson and asked him about possibly adding outgoing 49ers GM Scot McCloughan at some point.

Green Bay would be one logical destination for McCloughan given his strong ties to Thompson. The two worked together in Green Bay and Seattle.

McCloughan has said he lost sight of family during his tenure with the 49ers, an indication he might want to take some personal time.

The Packers are one of several logical landing spots. McCloughan has also worked closely with Titans GM Mike Reinfeldt, Browns president Mike Holmgren, Seahawks GM John Schneider and former Packers GM Ron Wolf, who lives in Florida and has a close association with Dolphins executive vice president Bill Parcells.

McCloughan hasn't formally left the 49ers, of course, but his situation could gain some clarity when team president Jed York takes calls from reporters during a conference call scheduled for Monday at 8 p.m. ET.
