The Cleveland Browns have reportedly filled their receivers coach vacancy, with it being reported by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that the team has hired former New York Giants receivers coach Adam Henry. Henry joined the Giants in 2016 after returning to the National Football League with the San Francisco 49ers in 2015. Henry coached with Hue Jackson in Oakland in 2011.

The change on the coaching staff is the second in as many days for the Browns, who saw longtime special teams coordinator Chris Tabor leave on Wednesday for the same position with the Chicago Bears.

Henry should have a chance to make a quick impact on the position group as, outside of Coleman and Josh Gordon, their will likely be a group of fresh receivers to work with come training camp.

Henry came back to the National Football League after having success with the two star LSU receivers. Leaving New York means Henry will be leaving behind a talented receiving core that include Beckham, Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram and Brandon Marshall (assuming he remains on the roster).

Defensive line coach Patrick Graham also interviewed with the Packers earlier this week.

The blame for that probably shouldn't fall too heavily on Saunders, who brings a lifetime of experience and more energy to the position than anyone who has coached in Cleveland in a long time. Once co-owner John Mara and Steve Tisch, Gettleman and assistant GM Kevin Abrams make that decision, expect the next coach to have heavy input on his coordinators and assistants.
