Browns reportedly gave Mike McCarthy an ultimatum to be their head coach

And maybe that's not a bad thing, after all.

Recently-fired Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph is meeting with the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday as the team searches for a defensive coordinator under head coach Kliff Kingsbury, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The 46-year-old would bring a good deal of National Football League experience to Kingsbury's staff.

He has mostly coached a 3-4 scheme but he is not very experienced as a defensive coordinator.

One of those coaches was former Green Bay Packers' head coach Mike McCarthy. He has made a long career out of coaching defenses to be their best, highlighted by a Super Bowl victory with the Saints.

The Cleveland Browns believe they finally have a franchise quarterback.

McCarthy is now reportedly focused on the New York Jets' job, telling other teams that it's the only job he'll consider.

Kitchens has only ever served as offensive position coach. In six of his past nine seasons as coordinator for the 49ers and Bears, Fangio has seen his defenses finish in the top 10 in both of those categories.

The Browns know that all too well after hiring general manager John Dorsey during the 2017 season and forcing him to stick with Hue Jackson and his 1-31 record in two seasons, for 2018.

And if the Broncos can't eventually get back on track with Fangio in charge, Elway, having taken the road less traveled in the 2019 coaching cycle and in total control, should start to worry about his own job security.
