On Thursday morning, it was announced the the Browns have fired Executive VP of Football Operations, Sashi Brown, after nearly two seasons on the job. He was previously the executive vice president/general counsel for the team hired in 2013. During his time as VP of FO, the Browns have gone an abysmal 1-27 and have struggled to find any type of consistency.
Brown is a lawyer and worked within the Jacksonville Jaguars organization before coming to Cleveland.
While there is still room for the young players to grow, none of his draft picks have really stood out as stars quite yet. His trade for LB Jamie Collins from the Patriots was likely his best move.
Losing WR Terrelle Pryor to the Washington Redskins in free agency and signing WR Kenny Britt, who has struggled or been injured for most of the year, has been a huge stain on his resume.
Finally, the drafting of quarterback DeShone Kizer out of Notre Dame puzzled many people. He has played poorly for most of the year and has yet to lead the Browns to a win. In consecutive drafts, Brown passed on QB Carson Wentz in 2016 and QB DeShone Watson in 2017, both whom are playing much, much better than Kizer. They’re teams are thriving while the Browns are regressing.
There were even reports that head coach Hue Jackson WANTED to draft Carson Wentz back in 2016 and that obviously did not happen due to Sashi Brown. Reports just came out that Jackson will remain the head coach to start next season. That is some huge news as well.
Brown will go down on the long list of failed Browns executives that have tried and failed to make this team a winner. We here at CST wish him the best of luck with any future endeavors. He was not brought in to a good situation and it was just too hard to get out of.
Good luck and good bye!
