  • Report: Browns fire executive VP Sashi Brown

Going 1-27 would appear to have its repercussions as the Cleveland Browns have terminated the contract of executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown per ESPN's Adam Schefter. 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.

Jackson, though, is safe and will return for the 2018 season despite a 1-27 record. "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". Brown, who headed the Browns personnel department for the past two years, was the Browns eighth general manager since the team returned to Cleveland in 1999.

The NFL season is nearing a close, which only can mean one thing: It's time for the Cleveland Browns to fire someone. Brown and his staff have stripped down Cleveland's roster and acquired draft picks but didn't win.

According to a report from NFL Media, the Browns have been looking at other candidates to be their GM over the last few weeks.

It's not yet clear if Haslam plans to retain chief strategist Paul DePodesta and player personnel director Andrew Berry.

Recently, the Browns failed to execute a trade with Cincinnati for quarterback AJ McCarron.

The Cleveland Browns are the only winless team remaining in the National Football League and, to make things even uglier, no other National Football League franchise has fewer than two wins over the course of the 2017 season to this point.
