Mike Pettine got a second look from the Browns, who could be zeroing in on their next coach.

Buffalo's defensive coordinator had his second interview with Cleveland owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner on Tuesday night, a person familiar with the Browns' plans told The Associated Press. The meeting took place in Mobile, Ala., site of the Senior Bowl, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team is not commenting during its search.

Pettine is the first candidate to meet twice with the Browns. He reportedly spent four hours with Haslam, Banner and other members of Cleveland's front office but was not offered the job. Pettine had impressed the Browns during his first interview last week, and club officials flew to meet with him again -- a strong sign of their interest.

However, the person familiar with the team's plans said the Browns left Mobile and had another interview lined up for Wednesday.

Earlier, Adam Gase, Denver's highly regarded offensive coordinator, called Haslam and informed him he was withdrawing his name and would not interview after the Super Bowl.

Pro Bowl: Former 49ers great Jerry Rice is already bucking conventional fantasy football wisdom in a new Pro Bowl format inspired by the popular hobby.

Rice picked New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees and St. Louis defensive end Robert Quinn to anchor his Pro Bowl team, opting for a passer over a runner.

Rice made the selections in Hawaii after winning a coin toss against Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders.

The decision prompted Sanders to select Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles and Houston defensive end J.J. Watt for Sunday's game.

"Don't think we forget Jerry picked them first," Watt said when asked whether the new schoolyard-style format would leave players with bruised egos.

The toss and selections started a new process for the NFL in selecting this year's Pro Bowl teams. Rice and Sanders are serving as captains and general managers in charge of divvying up the NFL stars.

Rice and Sanders split up interior lineman, punters, fullbacks and special teamers during the first part of the draft, with the 22 picks announced on a tape-delayed show. Rice and Sanders went position by position, skipping the usual fantasy strategy of prioritizing positions -- an element that will be in play Wednesday when the rest of the 60 players are divvied up.

Sanders picked Ndamukong Suh with his first defensive tackle selection, and then opted for Gerald McCoy and Dontari Poe. Rice grabbed Jason Hatcher and Marcell Dareus, and was assigned Kyle Williams.
