John Dorsey quickly emerges as rumored successor for Sashi Brown

Postado Dezembro 07, 2017

The Cleveland Browns have fired executive vice president/general manager Sashi Brown, the team announced on Thursday.

ESPN reported on Thursday that the team chose to fire executive vice president Sashi Brown, who was the head of the Browns' personnel department, after almost full two seasons on the job.

During his tenure overseeing the personnel department, the Browns mustered a horrid 1-27 record.

Cleveland will begin its search for a new general manager immediately, and ex-Kansas City Chiefs GM Ken Dorsey is a leading candidate, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Dianna Russini. The 2018 draft and off-season is pivotal for our franchise, we need to ensure that we maximize our opportunity for success; with our picks, free agency and building our roster. 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.

Brown joined the organization in 2013 and was promoted to VP in 2016. Wentz has gone on to revitalize Philadelphia's football team and is already in the conversation for MVP in just his second season while failing to use a single of the multitude of picks acquired to land a legitimate impact, game-changing player.

Brown's regime has been marked with strikeouts at the quarterback position, namely trading out of the No. 2 spot in the 2016 National Football League draft as Philadelphia moved up to select Carson Wentz.
