GM John Dorsey parts ways with Browns

John Dorsey

John Dorsey was given just two seasons to turn things around for the Cleveland Browns, and he was unable to get the job done.

Dorsey and the Browns have agreed to part ways, according to multiple reports. While the general manager technically was not fired, Cleveland’s ownership group met with him and proposed a new front office structure that he did not agree with, which was likely the expected outcome.

Dorsey made big moves in his two years with the Browns after he came over from the Kansas City Chiefs, but they have not panned out thus far. He drafted Baker Mayfield with the first overall pick, acquired two star wide receivers in Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry, fired Hue Jackson and promoted Freddie Kitchens to head coach. Kitchens’ first season as head coach in Cleveland was a disaster, as the team went 6-10 after closing out 2018 strong.

There was a ton of hype surrounding the Browns prior to the season, and Dorsey did his best to try to control that. That didn’t stop fans from expecting a postseason appearance.

Kitchens is largely responsible for 2019 being a lost season in Cleveland, and that was evident with some of the ugly exchanges he had with players late in the year. However, the decision to promote Kitchens and acquire the players who butted heads with the coach ultimately falls on Dorsey. Jimmy Haslam believes cleaning house is once again the best option for the Browns.
