Are the Browns right to bring Hue Jackson back in 2018?

Report: Browns fire executive VP Sashi Brown

The winless Cleveland Browns fired executive vice president/general manager Sashi Brown, who had headed Cleveland's personnel department the past two years, ESPN reported on Thursday.

According to Jason La Canfora, GM/executive Vp Sashi Brown has been fired.

The Browns are 0-12 this season and 1-27 since Jackson was hired in 2016.

It makes sense for Jackson to throw support behind his players and coaching stuff during this time of upheaval, basically.

"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". We have begun the process of having productive conversations regarding leadership of our football operations and will provide further updates when appropriate. Cleveland has a huge amount of draft capital thanks to Brown, but 24 selections in the last two cycles haven't resulted in a major talent influx.

Haslam saying that Jackson will return in 2018 is probably the most surprising development.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns have "eyes on" former Chiefs GM John Dorsey. The Browns' next GM will be its ninth since the franchise moved to Cleveland in 1999, the most in the National Football League in that span. We witnessed this with the botched trade of AJ McCarron from Cincinnati who many believe was Brown's undermining of the decision to acquire the backup quarterback. The team now holds 10 picks for 2018.

These picks have haunted this regime as Browns nation watches Wentz soar with the Eagles and until Watson's injury was amassing wonderful rookie numbers. They elected to pass on both Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson, who have performed like franchise players in a small sample.

The Eagles took Wentz, a leading candidate for NFL MVP this season, second overall in 2016, after swinging a blockbuster trade with the Browns.
