Winless Browns fire VP Brown, coach Hue Jackson keeps job

Winless Browns fire VP Brown, coach Hue Jackson keeps job

According to Jason La Canfora, GM/executive Vp Sashi Brown has been fired. Cleveland has a huge amount of draft capital thanks to Brown, but 24 selections in the last two cycles haven't resulted in a major talent influx.

It makes sense for Jackson to throw support behind his players and coaching stuff during this time of upheaval, basically.

The next GM will be the Browns' ninth since 1999, and will be the fourth leader of the front office that Haslam has hired since his purchase of the team from Randy Lerner was approved by the league's owners on October 16, 2012. With that as the backdrop, the team announced on Thursday that executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown has been relieved of his duties and owner Jimmy Haslam released the following statement. "Today we informed Sashi that we were going in a new direction".

While Browns are now looking to finish 2017-18 on a high note, yet another No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick is likely on the horizon for the struggling AFC North franchise. We need to ensure that we maximize our opportunity for success; with our picks, free agency and building our roster.

The newspaper said that the work will be lent or resold to museums, largely in the Middle East and Asia. In 2013, Salvator Mundi was bought by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev for $127.5 million.

Before the team played the Bengals two weeks ago, Jackson and Haslam both chatted with McCarron on the field while Brown stayed on Cleveland's sideline - a tell-tale sign of their rift. The team now holds 10 picks for 2018.

The Browns have three second-round picks in 2018 - theirs, and picks from the Eagles and Texans.

However, the team's decision to pass up on drafting quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson in the past two drafts may have hastened Brown's demise and Cleveland has shown little sign of improvement since Brown took over.

Former NFL executive Michael Lombardi also tweeted that Dorsey is the "leading candidate" for the Browns GM job.
