Browns owner Randy Lerner has asked ex-quarterback Bernie Kosar to spend more time around the organization and get feedback.
Kosar, 45, has been reluctant to assume an official position in the organization in the past because his four children live in Weston, Fla. and he hasn't been able to spend enough time in Cleveland.
He's been through a messy divorce with his wife Babette and a personal bankruptcy filing. Serving as president of the Cleveland Gladiators whetted his appetite to return to football and the folding of the Arena Football League gave him a window to aid Lerner.
''The situation with Bernie is that I asked if he would be available to spend some time around the Browns so that a variety of people would have access to him to share their thinking and get some feedback,'' Lerner said via email.
Kosar played for the Browns from 1985-93 and led them to three AFC Championship games in four years. He's been a friend of Lerner's for several years.
