Cleveland Browns fire executive VP of football operations Sashi Brown

One win in two seasons cost Sashi Brown his job with the Browns.

Beyond the move to part ways with Brown, Haslem also announced the head coach Hue Jackson was safe for the 2018 season while thanking Brown for his efforts.

Winless with four weeks left in another dismal season, the Cleveland Browns fired Brown on Thursday, jettisoning their top football executive who was unable to improve the volatile franchise enough to satisfy owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam.

The Browns have stockpiled picks for future drafts, with six additional picks in April's draft.

Sophie Turner in 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix'
Details about Jessica Chastain's character in X-Men: Dark Phoenix are still hazy, but a new report brings a few things to light. What a shock? "Pride is starting to get the better of him, and he is pushing the X-Men to more extreme missions", Kinberg says.

"Hue Jackson will remain our coach and will return for the 2018 season, but we feel it is necessary to take significant steps to strengthen our personnel department", Haslam added.

Haslam saying that Jackson will return in 2018 is probably the most surprising development.

Cleveland will begin its search for a new general manager immediately, and ex-Kansas City Chiefs GM Ken Dorsey is a leading candidate, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Dianna Russini.

With Brown's departure, the franchise will be searching for a general manager for the ninth time since it returned to Cleveland in 1999.

The new Direct app is apparently the company's first step in completely removing the inbox feature from the main Instagram app. When you open Direct, it goes straight to the camera - perhaps in an effort to condition you into creating and sharing content.

The Browns are 19-67 since, and 1-30 since Week 15 of the 2015 season.

Brown's replacement will have five draft picks in the first two rounds next spring to work with, including two picks - the Browns' and Texans' first-round selections - that should fall in the top 10.

These picks have haunted this regime as Browns nation watches Wentz soar with the Eagles and until Watson's injury was amassing awesome rookie numbers. We witnessed this with the botched trade of AJ McCarron from Cincinnati who many believe was Brown's undermining of the decision to acquire the backup quarterback.

The Hwasong-15 intercontinental ballistic missile demonstrated a greater range than other missiles North Korea has tested. That plan would see the drills suspended in exchange for Pyongyang halting its nuclear and ballistic missile tests.
