Former Packers coach Mike McCarthy is expected to interview with the Cleveland Browns on Thursday, a source said. McCarthy also has something set up with the Jets but it's not clear if that will happen before or after the interview with the Browns. https://t.co/FTPgLwrauS— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) January 2, 2019
That should be a very comfortable interview for McCarthy as friend and longtime colleague in Green Bay, John Dorsey, is the Browns General Manager. NFL Network also reporting that the New York Jets will interview McCarthy, although it unclear whether that will be before or after the interview with Cleveland. Like the Browns, the Jets have a promising, young quarterback; and they are flush with salary cap space, perhaps the most in the league depending on how some of their current contracts play out. New York will also be picking 3rd in April’s NFL Draft.
