Browns fire executive VP of football operations Sashi Brown

Browns fire executive VP of football operations Sashi Brown

His firing is not unexpected since the Browns are 0-12 for the second straight season with Brown in charge. "The 2018 draft and offseason 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", Haslam said in the statement.

The Browns are now mired in the worst stretch of football in NFL history and 1-27 but head coach Hue Jackson will not be fired according to Haslam. Owner Jimmy Haslam has already said Hue Jackson will remain the coach in 2018, so the incoming general manager will have to be comfortable with Jackson.

The Browns have stockpiled picks for future drafts, with six additional picks in April's draft.

The Browns' fanbase has been divided on who should stay or go and fans on social media had plenty to say. Brown was the executive for the Browns over the past two years, seeing only a singular win.

Cleveland took its usual incompetence a step further at the trade deadline, though, when the coaching staff and front office reportedly feuded over a lack of aggression to acquire Jimmy Garoppolo, who then was dealt to the 49ers.

The Browns are 19-67 since, and 1-30 since Week 15 of the 2015 season.

Brown's replacement will have five draft picks in the first two rounds next spring to work with, including two picks - the Browns' and Texans' first-round selections - that should fall in the top 10.

The Browns own 13 picks in the 2018 National Football League draft including 5 in the first 2 rounds - Houston's first and second round picks and Philadelphia's second.
