It seems like Brian Flores will be a popular man the next few weeks.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Browns have requested permission to interview the Patriots de facto defensive coordinator for their open head-coaching job. This comes after the Packers reportedly requested permission to speak to him, so this makes two teams.

It is somewhat interesting that the Packers have requested to speak with Josh McDaniels, but not the Browns -- at least as of now.

This is the second year of head-coaching interviews for Flores, as last year he met with the Cardinals.

With several other coaches to be fired Monday, expect the list of teams looking to speak with McDaniels and Flores to grow in the coming days.
