Cleveland Browns fire executive Vice President Sashi Brown

Browns continue to stand behind DeShone Kizer as quarterback

The Browns have been struggling for quite some time as they are sitting at the bottom of the AFC North rankings with a 0-12 record so far this season, and Cleveland was 1-27 with Brown as GM.

Brown, who was named the team's top executive by owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam during an overhaul following the 2015 season, was relieved of his duties on Thursday.

Cleveland Browns quarterback DeShone Kizer has the confidence of head coach Hue Jackson, who told reporters that Kizer can be a winning quarterback in the NFL.

Haslam also announced Jackson will remain as coach for next season. He gutted Cleveland's roster, electing not to re-sign some of the team's own free agents in favor of signing younger players and acquiring future draft picks. "We thank Sashi for all his hard work and dedication to the Cleveland Browns".

USA to maintain Russian Federation sanctions until it withdraws from Ukraine, Tillerson says
Economic sanctions were placed on Russian Federation by then-US President Barack Obama in 2014 following the country's military action in Crimea and Ukraine.

The Browns' fanbase has been divided on who should stay or go and fans on social media had plenty to say.

The low point of Brown's 23-month tenure as the top football executive likely occurred on Halloween, when a failed trade with the Cincinnati Bengals resulted in the Browns getting widely criticized for not getting their paperwork sent prior to the league's 4 p.m. trade deadline.

ESPN's Adam Schefter and Dianna Russini were first to report the news.

The Browns not only missed out on drafting Carson Wentz and DeShaun Watson, but traded the picks with which both emerging star quarterbacks were selected, by the Eagles and Texans respectively.
