Did 49ers almost trade Harbaugh to Browns?

The media room at the NFL Combine is buzzing from what is one of the stranger stories to surface in a while — this report from Pro Football Talk that the Cleveland Browns nearly traded with the 49ers for San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh.

There have been some recent rumblings of tension between Harbaugh and 49er general manager Trent Baalke and the Browns have been making some of the most erratic moves of any franchise in the NFL the last few years (and here’s a good Yahoo.com summation of the whole thing, including a statement from the NFL on coaches being traded).

That said, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport quickly Tweeted that the 49ers are denying the report, leading to a little Twitter back-and-forth between Rapoport and PFT:

Expect this one to linger for a while.
