Yes, it's interesting that the greatest Brown of all, Jim Brown, is campaigning publicly and privately for Ozzie Newsome, another all-time great, to return to the roost in Cleveland to serve as the team's new general manager.

Ozzie Newsome
I have wondered whether Brown is doing this with Newsome's blessing, not that Jim Brown ever waited for anyone's blessing to speak his mind.

After all, Newsome's only response to his name being linked with the Cleveland GM post has been, "I have a good job."

Not, "Thanks, but no thanks." Not, "I'm not interested."
