Andrew Berry finalizing deal to become Browns GM

Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns appear to have their new general manager.

The Browns are finalizing a deal with Philadelphia Eagles vice president Andrew Berry to become the team’s new general manager, as first reported by Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com. Berry will also reportedly receive the title of executive vice president.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the 32-year-old Berry is getting a five-year deal and will have full control of the 53-man roster.

Berry quickly became the focus of Cleveland’s search after previous leading candidate George Paton removed himself from consideration for the job. That opened the door for Berry, who was the Browns’ vice president of player personnel from 2016-18.

The goal the Browns have is to create better cooperation between all sides of their football operation. The titles Berry is receiving indicate he will be at the center of all of that, and will have a big job to do paired with new head coach Kevin Stefanski.
