If the Seattle Seahawks ultimately decide to part ways with GM Tim Ruskell at season's end, they might have one less candidate available.
According to Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, former Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren met with Browns owner Randy Lerner on Tuesday about the possibility of becoming head of football operations for the Browns franchise.
According to Grossi, Hall of Fame running back and former Cleveland player Jim Brown told a crowd at a luncheon in Cleveland on Tuesday that Lerner was interviewing someone who could turn around the team's bleak future.
"At this moment, right now Randy Lerner is meeting with one of the great football minds in this country," Brown said in remarks prior to and during the luncheon, according to the Plain Dealer report. "And if things work out, that person will come in to run the football side of the Browns."

According to the report, Brown would not disclose who it was. When somebody asked if it was Mike Holmgren, Brown responded, "You said it ... and I heard it."
Also, the Seahawks made a minor roster move today, releasing running back Devin Moore from the practice squad and using the roster spot to add running back Xavier Omon. At 5-11, 220 pounds, Omon is a Northwest Missouri State product who was drafted in the sixth-round draft by the Buffalo Bills last season. He appeared in five games this season for Buffalo before being released last week.
Looks like the Seahawks are hoping Omon is a big back who can move the pile in short-yardage situations.
Those of you who follow the game with host Ryan Divish on Sundays on our game day chat will be happy to know that Dick Stockton and Charles Davis are calling this Sunday's contest against Minnesota, so bottoms up to Olindo Mar-AA!
It's the tandem's fourth Seahawks game and sixth of the season.
And former Seahawk Jordan Kent has signed a deal with the St. Louis Rams, who have suffered a rash of injuries at wide receiver similar to what Seattle went through last season. The Rams earlier this year made a trade to bring in former Washington State product Brandon Gibson from Philadelphia.
That is all.
