Cleveland Browns hire John Dorsey as their new general manager

The Browns have not won a game this season, but there are signs that the team is improving.

John Dorsey has been made the Browns full term general manager on Thursday evening.

It didn't take long after Sashi Brown was formally relieved of his duties as executive vice president of football operations for John Dorsey's name to surface as a leading candidate to replace Brown. "We have begun the process of having productive conversations regarding leadership of our football operations and will provide further updates when appropriate". Jackson supposedly wanted Cleveland to draft Carson Wentz out of North Dakota State in 2016 and Deshaun Watson out of Clemson in 2017. He held that job from 2013-2016, and helped build a team that won the AFC West past year.

"Bringing in someone of John Dorsey's caliber, his track record of success and his experience, significantly strengthens our opportunities to build a winning football team and that has been, and continues to be, what we want for our fans". We know we have a critical and very positive opportunity ahead of us to profoundly impact the foundation of this football team. But while he was Kansas City's GM, the club flourished, going 43-21 and advancing to the postseason three times. Dorsey said he was fond of Kizer, a second-round pick from Notre Dame, when he was evaluating players in Kansas City.

A former National Football League linebacker, Dorsey is looking forward to the challenge of rebuilding the Browns. Before that, Dorsey cut his teeth in the front office with the Green Bay Packers under the tutelage of legendary executive Ron Wolf.

"I look forward to working with Hue Jackson", Dorsey said. Hue Jackson remains, though, and the announcement of Sashi Brown's dismissal included the note that he would be coach of the Browns next regardless of who is brought in as the team's new personnel decision-maker.
