Before that, Dorsey cut his teeth in the front office with the Green Bay Packers under the tutelage of legendary executive Ron Wolf.

"I think it would be a mistake to just zero in on '18", Haslam said Friday of retaining Jackson.

Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam introduced new general manager John Dorsey on Friday morning and said the team "absolutely" complied with the NFL's Rooney Rule that requires National Football League teams to interview at least one minority candidate. Team chairman Clark Hunt's decision to fire Dorsey was fueled, in part, by concerns about his internal communication and management styles, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation who spoke to The Star on condition of anonymity. Dorsey might do very well with this opportunity.

The former Bills general manager was sacked following the 2017 NFL Draft after spending seven years with the organization, including three seasons as its general manager. Together, he and Jackson must find the next franchise quarterback for the Browns.

What if Dorsey, should the Browns finish 0-16 and continue to fall apart in the second half, decides he wants to make a change at coach? "I don't think there is anything that is good about that". He was a disappointment in his one season with the Browns after establishing career highs of 68 catches and 1,002 yards last season for the Los Angeles Rams.

After all, Dorsey has one of the most proven track records in football in terms of drafting talented players and building rosters through his quality work in the draft.

Not only is she still churning out hit albums and performing around the world, but she's now a married mom of two . All in all, we'd call it a successful date!


Maybe Dorsey took the job knowing all of this, and is OK with it. Today we informed Sashi that we were going in a new direction.

Along with losing, the Browns have been consistent in front-office and coaching shake-ups.

No coach in National Football League history has lost more than Jackson in his first 28 games with a franchise.

The timing of firing Brown and hiring Dorsey is important.

Frustrations boiled over and now Brown is out of a job.

But Jackson shouldn't emerge from this mess unscathed.
