Browns, John Dorsey To Part Ways?

The Browns and GM John Dorsey are “leaning towards” parting ways today, sources tell Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen of (on Twitter). However, Schefter cautions that the situation is “fluid and not final.”

Dorsey will meet with owner Jimmy Haslam on Tuesday afternoon to hash things out, but all signs are pointing to this being the end of Dorsey’s time in Cleveland. Days after firing Freddie Kitchens – who got just one season at the helm – the Browns could be on the verge of cleaning house.

Shortly after word of Kitchens’ dismissal broke, Dorsey released a statement indicating that he was staying put. Soon, we’ll know whether that’s the case.

Dorsey joined the Browns in 2017 and his lofty resume led to high expectations off the bat. So far, those expectations have not been met – the Browns finished 6-9 in 2019, despite having one of the league’s most dynamic quarterbacks in Baker Mayfield and acquiring superstar receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

Technically, it’s an upgrade over the Browns’ winless 2017 season, but that’s not quite enough to satisfy the Browns’ restless fans or ownership.

      The analytics guys are in control. Good luck and good riddance. Browns won’t win until they boot Petey.

          Just from what I’ve heard he got fired because one of the players was released and he did not bother to tell the player and the player found out via social media

    Probably related to Matt Rhule saying, yeah there’s no way I even want to interview with this dumpster fire organization.

    How can anyone put everything on John? Not a fan of the Browns but not a hater either. Many people will agree John was great in Kansas City and helped build that franchise but apparently he forgot how to do that in Cleveland? He is just one of many who could not get it done in Cleveland but excelled in other organizations which to me is proof that the Cleveland Browns are just toxic plain and simple. You have to think that the owner probably has his hands on this team more than people think and apparently has no clue what he’s doing that can be the only logical explanation.

      I find it funny that he was a minority owner in Pit & literally does the exact opposite how the Steelers run a team!

      Probably has a lot to do with the fact that Ron Rivera and Matt Rhule refused to even interview with them. That speaks volumes about how horrible of a job coaches regard that position.

      We still don’t know if McCarthy will interview either – it sounds like he might take the Giants job and cancel his Browns interview.

        Rivera didn’t interview anywhere because he already had the Redskins job lined up. Rhule didn’t interview because he didn’t want to be a part of the organization at all, not because of anything Dorsey did.

        When was Riveria supposed to interview? He was hired by Washington immediately.

        Rivera never refused to interview. Do you just make things up as you go along?

  3. That is absolute garbage! The Browns have assembled more talent now than they have had in 20 years that they have been back in the league COMBINED!
