Cleveland Browns hire John Dorsey as their new general manager

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

"They just felt, 'Hey, you didn't draft Carson Wentz".

Will he be told that he should wait until 2018, after Jackson has had a chance to work with the Browns' next draft class, next QB prospect of the future, and with any free agents who might be signed with the club's Danny Shelton-sized salary-cap space?

The Cleveland Browns hired John Dorsey as their new general manager Thursday, and the former architect of the Kansas City Chiefs wasted no time waxing poetic about the potential of the franchise at his introductory press conference Friday. He was able to piece together a very talented roster in Kansas City, reversing course quickly after having the NFL's overall worst record in 2012 to competing in the playoffs almost every season he was in K.C.

Dorsey made a career out of scouting, via a successful 20-year run with the Green Bay Packers.

This is an outstanding hire for the Browns.

"Hue Jackson will remain our coach and will return for the 2018 season but we feel it is necessary to take significant steps to strengthen our personnel department", Haslam's statement read.

Yemen rebel leader to Saudis: Let's 'turn the page'
He told Yemenis all across the country that if they support him, "to defend the nation, the republic and the revolution". Saudi Arabia has been locked in a fight with the Houthi rebels since it joined the Yemen war in 2015.

With its open roster spot, the Browns promoted defensive back Justin Currie from its practice squad.

He also drafted Patrick Mahomes in the 2017 draft, and Mahomes is well-documented as the quarterback Browns coach Hue Jackson wanted. Instead, Brown and his staff went home early and didn't file the paperwork for the reported McCarron trade.

A lot of that was on Brown, who did a great job of collecting assets and a poor job of utilizing them.

Dorsey will be heavily armed with assets this offseason to begin the process of turning the woebegone Browns around. "Hopefully, I am still a part of that, which I am, and hopefully, our players that are here, a year from now, hopefully, we can get this thing to where it needs to be".

Brown and Jackson appeared to be at odds over several roster decisions and Haslam figured his best course of action was to end the relationship rather than attempting to fix it.
