The Cleveland Browns have jumped head-first into their search for former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's replacement, and they've found another potential option in San Francisco 49ers coordinator Greg Roman.
The interview with Roman will take place Monday, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group's Mary Kay Cabot:
The #Browns will interview 49ers OC Greg Roman for their OC vacancy Monday, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.

The Browns will have some competition for Roman, per ESPN's Adam Schefter:
Rams requested permission to interview 49ers OC Greg Roman along with former Browns OC Kyle Shanahan for their OC vacancy.

Roman became the object of some 49ers fans' ire this past season as last year's NFC Championship participants sputtered on offense for long stretches of the season. However, he's long been celebrated in football circles as an innovator and his work with Colin Kaepernick could pay dividends for a mobile quarterback like Johnny Manziel.
