Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com broke the news that the 49ers almost traded head coach Jim Harbaugh to the Browns.
A 49ers source told Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network that the report is false.
Rapoport and Florio then exchanged tweets in what almost turned into a Twitter fight.
Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report has come to the rescue by confirming Florio’s report.
Two sources said the PFT report is essentially accurate. There were "extensive discussions" about Harbaugh to Browns, one said.
