Arizona Cardinals vice president of player personnel Steve Keim is reportedly among the possible candidates for the Cleveland Browns general manager position if the Browns fire current GM Tom Heckert by Monday as is expected.

The Plain Dealer reports that Keim would be among a list of possibile replacements, including Cardinals Director of Pro Personnel Jason Licht, Buffalo Bills Assistant General Manager Doug Whaley, Atlanta Falcons Director of Player Personnel David Caldwell, Kansas City Chiefs Director of Pro Personnel Ray Farmer and Seattle Seahawks Vice President of Football Administration John Idzik.

Keim has been with the Cardinals since 1999, when he joined the organization as a regional scout. He was promoted to his current position in May of 2012 after serving as director of player personnel since 2008.

Licht has spent two seasons with the Cardinals after serving with the New England Patriots as director of pro personnel from 2009 to 2011. He worked with Arizona in 2008.
