Browns Fire VP Sashi Brown, Will Keep Hue Jackson Amid Tumultuous Rebuild

On Monday, we saw the New York Giants fire their Head Coach, Ben McAdoo and GM, Jerry Reese.

Winless with four weeks left in another dismal season, the Cleveland Browns fired Brown on Thursday, jettisoning their top football executive who was unable to improve the volatile franchise enough to satisfy owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam. "We thank Sashi for all his hard work and dedication to the Cleveland Browns". No matter who they go with, it has to be better than the previous, right?

Haslam said he informed Brown "that we were going in a new direction" and pointed to the 2018 draft, when the Browns will have two first-round picks, as "pivotal for our franchise". The Browns have two picks in the first round and three in the second round in the 2018 draft. That was the only firing Jimmy Haslam administered Thursday, though, as the Browns' owner announced Hue Jackson will remain the team's coach in 2018.

The NFL season is nearing a close, which only can mean one thing: It's time for the Cleveland Browns to fire someone.

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.

"The plan" to accumulate draft picks for the future came at the expense of passing on quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson.

For your balance it's not bad, for a footballer it's not great. Mustafi has a little thigh problem, but it's a small one.

Cleveland's next personnel leader will be tasked with selecting that player. "I don't think there is anything that is good about that". I'll keep saying that.

Brown was able to build a nice nest egg for any future general manager or front office.

Brown was named the team's top executive by the Haslams during an overhaul following the 2015 season. The team now holds 10 picks for 2018.

"We have great appreciation and gratitude for Sashi's commitment and leadership to our organization but believe transitioning to someone with strong experience and success in drafting and building consistently winning football teams is critical to the future of the Cleveland Browns", Haslam said in a statement.

However, it's the decisions to pass on Wentz and Watson to fix Cleveland's decade-long problem at quarterback that will always tarnish his resume. Now, it's someone else's turn.
