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.
Who might take the job for the Browns, who have a 4-40 record since the start of the 2015 season?
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that Cleveland is interested in former Chiefs general manager John Dorsey.
“Behind the scenes over the past few weeks, the #Browns have privately vetted GM candidates — with eyes on former #Chiefs GM John Dorsey,” Rapoport reported.
Former NFL executive Michael Lombardi tweeted that Dorsey is the “leading candidate” for the Browns GM job.
Dorsey was fired by the Chiefs in June after four seasons with Kansas City. The Chiefs had a 43-21 record under Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid.
ESPN’s story noted that the Browns have had eight general managers since it started anew in 1999.
