CLEVELAND (AP) _ A person familiar with the Browns' plans tells The Associated Press the team will interview Patriots director of college scouting Monti Ossenfort to be their general manager.
Ossenfort has been with New England for 15 seasons. He is to meet with Cleveland on Friday.
The Browns hired coach Kevin Stefanski this week. He'll help the team pick its next GM because owner Jimmy Haslam wants to assure alignment between his coach and top football decision maker.
