Another former member of the Cleveland Browns is taking the next step when it comes to coaching in the NFL. According to a report by a Jets beat writer, cornerback Daylon McCutcheon, who spent his entire NFL career with Cleveland from 1999-2006, has a role on the Jets' staff:
When McCutcheon went to college at USC, Dennis Thurman was his defensive backs coach. Thurman had been the Jets' defensive backs coach from 2008-2012, but obviously has more say now that he is the team's defensive coordinator. It will be interesting to see if this leads to any future coaching position for McCutcheon in the NFL next season. Since retiring from the Browns, McCutcheon has been a defensive coach for his high school.
Funny enough, McCutcheon will be re-united with a former teammate in New York, as tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. officially signed a contract with the team. Winslow and McCutcheon were teammates for three years from 2004-2006, although Winslow's first non-disastrous season with Cleveland was in 2006.
