Cleveland Browns Offseason 2012: The Philadelphia Link and Other Thoughts

Could more former Eagles land in Cleveland?

It began with the addition of general manager Tom Heckert. A very much sought-after GM prospect who actually turned down an offer with the Cleveland Browns in 2009, before he accepted the same position the following year, when Mike Holmgren became President.

Heckert was VP of player personnel and then became GM of the Philadelphia Eagles. His tenure in Philly was 2001 through 2009.

Last year, Pat Shurmur became the latest head coach. Shurmur was the quarterbacks coach of the Eagles from 2002 through 2008.

And this year, Brad Childress comes aboard to serve as offensive coordinator. Childress had the same title in Philly after being promoted from quarterbacks coach. He coached for the Eagles from 1999 through 2005.

The three were all on the same staff between the years of 2002 and 2005. They all have history with each other and now have the task of making the Cleveland Browns relevant again in the NFL.

What else could happen this offseason?

(This is not to be taken literally, as it is purely fun speculation.)
