Former Browns S Jim Leonhard Would Return to NFL in Right Situation

On Friday, former Cleveland Browns safety Jim Leonhard was a guest on SiriusXM NFL Radio, where he was interviewed by Alex Marvez and Kirk Morrison. Last season, his first with Cleveland, Leonhard kept hinting that he was going to retire in 2015. While that still might end up being true, Leonhard hasn't officially called it a career:

All things considered, Leonhard had a very good year with the Browns in 2014, and he's worked with head coach Mike Pettine for a few years. Is there a chance that Pettine could lure the veteran safety back at some point this year? The odds aren't likely, considering the team spent a fourth round pick on safety Ibraheim Campbell this year, a guy who is being billed as Leonhard's replacement. If Cleveland is contending mid-way through the season and there is a void at safety, whether it's due to injury or lack of competent backup play, you can never say never.
