It was a longshot for former Redskins defensive coordinator, Gregg Williams, to come back to the team. However, it appears the Redskins won't even get a meeting, if they wanted to kick the tires, as he's heading to the Cleveland Browns.
The Browns have secured Gregg Williams to be their next defensive coordinator. Done deal. Wholesale changes coming to defensive staff— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 8, 2017
The Browns are coming off a 1-15 season and changes needed to be made.
Have been reporting since November that it was highly likely Browns moving on from Ray Horton and change was, again, afoot— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 8, 2017
The Redskins likely weren't going to bring Williams back, as it has been reported that Gus Bradley seems to be at the top of the list. As our JP Finlay pointed out, it makes a lot of sense for Bradley to come to DC.
