This is the first report indicating O’Brien has interviewed with any NFL team since news broke on Sunday from ESPN’s Chris Mortensen that there was significant interest amongst NFL teams in talking to O’Brien.
La Canfora reported that O’Brien was hoping to have this wrapped up by the weekend, while a report from Philly said that Bill’s wife Colleen wants to remain in Happy Valley.
