The Cleveland Browns are already conducting their search for a new general manager after the team fired executive VP of football operations Sashi Brown on Thursday.
One of the first names to pop up as a candidate is former Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey and is expected to be a name at the top of the list of candidates, according to ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter and Dianna Russini.
“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 the statement.
“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.
Dorsey will be a name to watch as things progress. The next general manager will be their 9th since the team returned to Cleveland in 1999.
Texans Sign Darren Fells
Fells, 32, was cut by the Cleveland Browns earlier this month after the team failed to find a trade.
Fells, who inked a three-year, $12 million deal with the Browns last year, managed only 11 receptions in his only season in Cleveland.
Chiefs Sign Bashaud Breeland
Breeland played in just seven games for the Green Bay Packers last season, but was very production when he was on the field, hauling in 2 interceptions and a fumble recovery in 2018.
Jets Sign Tom Compton
The New York Jets have signed veteran guard Tom Compton to a one-year deal, according to the New York Daily News’ Manish Mehta.
Compton provides vast experience, with over 30 starts over his 7 seasons in the league, and started 14 games for the Minnesota Vikings last season, playing at left guard, right guard, and right tackle.
