BEGINNING BID

News reports say the Cleveland Browns offered draft picks to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for coach Jim Harbaugh, but were rebuffed.

The 49ers labeled false an earlier report that said they had considered the swap. Cleveland issued a vague statement about being satisfied with its current coach.

With all the draft picks the Jazz are accumulating, you have to wonder: that’s how they plan to get Jeff Hornacek back to Utah?
