    CLEVELAND - Mike Lombardi remains a legitimate candidate to become the GM for the Cleveland Browns for various reasons. Lombardi knows all three of them well, primarily through his relationship with former Browns coach Bill Belichick, with whom Lombardi remains close. Marrone and Lombardi also share the same agent. Lombardi, 53, became well-acquainted with Kelly through Kelly's growing friendship with Belichick and longstanding relationship with O'Brien. Kelly, a good friend of O'Brien and Belichick, has visited the Patriots three times over the past couple of years, according to the Boston Globe, to help Belichick implement the fast-pace no-huddle offense that had the Patriots operating at break-neck speed this season.
