The Cleveland Browns have hired Adam Henry to be their new wide receivers coach, as first reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

What does that mean for Al Saunders? Not much. His was already a senior offensive assistant the past two years for head coach Hue Jackson, but Cleveland also gave him the label of receivers coach. Now, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal says that Saunders will “transition into a senior advisory role.”

As for Henry, he has worked as the wide receivers coach for the New York Giants over the past two years. Back in 2011, he was the tight ends coach for the Oakland Raiders (back when Jackson was their head coach).
