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.

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.
