Report: Browns to fire Ray Horton; Possibly hire Gregg Williams

Some former Titans defensive coordinators in the news today in Cleveland.

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

There are a lot of former Titans defensive coordinators in the news in Cleveland today:

Ray Horton, who was the DC here under Ken Whisenhunt, is the DC the Browns are making a change from. Gregg Williams was here a couple of times- first with Jeff Fisher and then later with Mike Munchak. He spent 2016 with Jeff Fisher in Los Angeles.

If I were a Browns fan, I would be praying for Williams to turn that job down so that Wade Phillips is hired. He has a much more successful record of building defenses than Williams does, especially recently.

Williams is obviously best known at this point for his role now for his role in the “Bountygate Scandal.” That earned him a beatdown at the hands of Sean Payton this past season when the Rams and Saints faced each other. Of course it is ridiculous for Payton to act like he didn’t know that stuff was going on, but hey, whatever makes him feel better.
