Brown, who was named the team's top executive by owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam during an overhaul following the 2015 season, was relieved of his duties on Thursday. "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". The Browns plan on keeping Hue Jackson, who is 1-27 as Cleveland's coach, for the 2018 season. Browns owner Jimmy Haslam also announced that head coach Hue Jackson will stay for the 2018 season. However, per Adam Schefter and reading into Haslam's quote, "We have begun the process of having productive conversation regarding leadership of our football operation and will provide further updates when appropriate", the Browns are expected to fire more personal throughout the day.

Things just won't get better for the Cleveland Browns.

The Browns' fanbase has been divided on who should stay or go and fans on social media had plenty to say. Brown was named the team's top executive in 2016 by the Haslams.

The Browns then moved out of the No. 12 spot in the 2017 draft, allowing the Houston Texans to select Deshaun Watson.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Browns have "eyes on" former Chiefs GM John Dorsey.

The Browns own 13 picks in the 2018 National Football League draft including 5 in the first 2 rounds - Houston's first and second round picks and Philadelphia's second.

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

The Browns are blowing it up again.
