Browns fire executive VP of football operations Sashi Brown
The Cleveland Browns are no longer trusting the process of executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown.
According to a report from ESPN’s NFL Insider Adam Schefter and SportsCenter anchor Diana Russini, the Browns fired the head of their front office on Thursday.
Though he was never officially given the title of general manager, Brown replaced former Cleveland general manager Ray Farmer in Jan. 2016. After formally serving as a salary cap specialist in the organization, Brown was supposed to take an analytical approach to building a roster along with coach Hue Jackson.
However, the Browns are just 1-27 since he took over the personnel side of things. And he’s reportedly been at odds with Jackson almost every step of the way
The worst rumors surrounded a trade for Cincinnati Bengals quarterback A.J. McCarron, who played under Jackson when he was the offensive coordinator in Cincinnati. The Browns reportedly had a deal in place to bring McCarron to Cleveland, but the coaching staff believes that Brown torpedoed that deal by intentionally sabotaging the paperwork.
As for Jackson, who has also been at the helm for the past two seasons, it appears that he’ll be kept in place as the head coach through 2018, according to Schefter.
