While Browns fans are patiently waiting to learn the direction Mike Holmgren will decide to go for their head coach for 2010, the team's new football czar is also taking steps to line up prospective general manager candidates.

Philadelphia Eagles general manager Tom Heckert is slated to be in Cleveland Tuesday night to meet with Holmgren regarding the vacant GM position, has learned.

Heckert was also coveted for the same post by the Browns years ago before they hired Phil Savage, but at the time Heckert elected to stay in Philadelphia. Savage lasted in Cleveland until the end of the 2008 season, then was replaced by first-year GM George Kokinis — was was fired in early November.

Other candidates for the position are rumored to be Packers Director of Football Operations John Schneider, former Saints/Dolphins GM Randy Mueller and Titans Director of Pro Scouting Lake Dawson among others.
