It looks like the Seattle Seahawks will have some competition in the team’s pursuit of a new general manager from a familiar face.
Jason La Confora of NFL.com is reporting that Cleveland Browns president of football operations Mike Holmgren received permission to interview Philadelphia Eagles general manager Tom Heckert.
UPDATE: ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Heckert is in town today to be interviewed by the team on Wednesday. Heckert and Holmgren also share the same agent, Bob Lamonte.
La Confora reports that Heckert and former Seahawks vice president of football operations Randy Mueller are favorites to land the position in Cleveland. Mueller is currently a senior executive for San Francisco.
Both Hecket and Mueller were considered as potential candidates for the vacant Seattle general manager position.
