Report: Browns deny contacting possible front office candidates

Report: Browns deny contacting possible front office candidates
When you're winless and just 1-21 since taking over, there's going to be constant reports of possible turnover in the front office. 

After the Browns blowout loss to the Houston Texans, reports have surfaced the Browns are looking to make changes.  , 33-17 on Sunday

With the current Browns front office regime winless at 0-6 and 1-21 over their two years in their rebuild,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/corey-moore-jersey-authentic]Authentic Corey Moore Jersey[/url], Chief Strategy Office Paul DePodesta and Vice President of Player Personnel Andrew Berry., there's bound to be speculation about the future of their top decision makers in Executive Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown

ProFootballTalk.com's Mike Florio cited a source saying the"wheels are in motion" for the Browns to shake up their front office once again. It is unclear if he was saying the Browns were looking to add to the current structure, such as a team president or replace the current decision makers in the front office.

However,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/stephen-anderson-jersey-authentic]Authentic Stephen Anderson Jersey[/url], cleveland.com reported the report was "false and erroneous" through a Browns spokesman. 

In previous weeks, there have been various reports that there is a rift between the coaching staff and the front office,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/jeff-allen-jersey-authentic]Authentic Jeff Allen Jersey[/url], as well as Brown. , which has been denied by Hue Jackson

Texans adjust to life without Watt and Mercilus, prepare for Browns

There’s good news and bad news ahead for the Houston Texans.

The bad news comes as  defensive superstar JJ Watt and linebacker Whitney Mercilus are done for the season with painful injuries.

But the good news?

Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is quickly becoming a superstar in his own right.

“God put me here for a reason and I’m blessed to be a Houston Texan,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/andre-hal-jersey-authentic]Authentic Andre Hal Jersey[/url],” the Texans QB said.

In just the past two weeks, Watson has orchestrated 10 touchdowns!

“I do a lot of things that I kind of go back and watch the film and ask myself how I did it,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/breno-giacomini-jersey-authentic]Authentic Breno Giacomini Jersey[/url],” Watson said modestly.

Next up the Texans face the hapless 0-5 Cleveland Browns.

The Texans are favored by 10 over the Browns and  players are ready to step up.

“I think that’s the beauty of this team,” Watson shared. “There’s no selfishness. Everyone wants everyone to succeed. All we want to do is just win.”

The Browns are making a change at QB, so we’ll see if that improves their lackluster offense.

Time is now for Cleveland Browns to start crafting new front office

That's what I thought on Sunday when I watched the Cleveland Browns get torn apart by the Houston Texans. The Browns are now 0-6 on the season and 1-21 since the franchise decided to throw conventional football operations out the window and try analytics. 

Let me emphasize: It's not just the losing that's bothering me. I think if we were honest with each other,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/c.j.-fiedorowicz-jersey-authentic]Authentic C. J. Fiedorowicz Jersey[/url], we knew that year 2 might have some potholes. But this season is shaping up to be a disaster of even worse proportions than last year. This team is not showing any signs of tangible improvement week in and week out.

Something has to be done. 

So let me lay out the case as to why change is necessary: 

Free Agency 2016--The Browns let key free agents Mitchell Schwartz and Tashawn Gipson depart. I don't include Alex Mack on this list, because he wasn't going to stay around for another regime change. But the Browns completely botched negotiations with Schwartz and still haven't filled the void at right tackle. 

The 2016 NFL Draft--Even after the Rams moved ahead of Cleveland to take Jared Goff with the first overall pick, the Browns had a clear shot at QB Carson Wentz. Keep in mind, QB Cody Kessler, Browns coach Hue Jackson was the only NFL head coach to attend Wentz's pro day. Yet, they chose to pass up a potential franchise quarterback in a trade-down with the Eagles that has so far netted Corey Coleman, a still-to-be-used 2018 second-round pick, and after a series of other moves: T Shon Coleman, WR Ricardo Louis, OG/OT Spencer Drango. Sorry, a first-round pick in 2017 (essentially Jabrill Peppers), S Derrick Kindred, WR Jordan Payton, I'd rather have the franchise QB. 

What made the trade even worse was Chief Strategic Officer Paul DePodesta's evaluation of Wentz to ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi, essentially declaring that the North Dakota State product was not a 'Top 20 quarterback.'

Free Agency 2017--The Browns allowed Terrelle Pryor to walk away in free agency and replaced him with Kenny Britt, who has all of the makings of a bust. They also essentially spent $16 million dollars on a 2nd-round pick in a trade with the Houston Texans for QB Brock Osweiler, did not to endear himself to teammates and brought little to the quarterback room., who didn't even make the final roster. One team source told CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora that Osweiler was "a cancer" in the locker room

The 2017 NFL Draft--The Browns deserve credit for taking Myles Garrett with the first overall pick, resisting temptation. But that's where the praise ends. They bypassed another potential franchise quarterback in Deshaun Watson in favor of stockpiling draft picks. Heck, who looks like a much more polished safety than Peppers. , they could have taken Malik Hooker at #12

One other nugget from the non-drafting of Watson came on Sunday courtesy of CBS. Apparently Hue Jackson texted Watson 'be ready,' implying that the Browns were set to take the Clemson signal-caller. Jackson denies the story,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/corey-moore-jersey-authentic]Womens Corey Moore Jersey[/url], I don't doubt it. Was Hue cut out of the loop on draft day? , but given the Browns' past histories with texting

It seemed like a small thing at the time, but the Browns front office deserves criticism for an ill-advised offseason trade. Per LaCanfora,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/stephen-anderson-jersey-authentic]Womens Stephen Anderson Jersey[/url], Executive Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown rankled many on the coaching staff by trading linebacker Demario Davis, a former first-round bust cut loose at the end of the preseason after getting into a fight with a teammate. ,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/jeff-allen-jersey-authentic]Womens Jeff Allen Jersey[/url], a popular player in the locker room that was seen as a key part of Gregg Williams' defense, to the Jets for troubled safety Calvin Pryor

I don't take everything LaCanfora says as gospel, but I do think that the disconnect he recently wrote about between the coaching staff and the scouting staff is real. 

The prosecution rests,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/andre-hal-jersey-authentic]Womens Andre Hal Jersey[/url], your honor. 

So now that we've tried to make the case that this regime has to be cut loose, what happens next? 

First, some breaking news: According to WKYC Channel 3 Sports,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/breno-giacomini-jersey-authentic]Womens Breno Giacomini Jersey[/url], the former University of Tennessee star joins fellow Volunteer alum Jimmy Haslam with the Browns. , former NFL MVP QB Peyton Manning was in Cleveland last week. We haven't confirmed that he met or spoke with the Browns or the Haslam family. This has always been thought to be a plausible scenario: Manning

It's no secret that Manning has long wanted to be an NFL executive. He witnessed John Elway build a Super Bowl winner in Denver. My only fear is that he has no front-office experience. But Manning does have credibility around the league. That's not a bad thing. And remember that Elway didn't have front office experience before taking over the Broncos. 

Put a pin in the Peyton report for a second and let me make my recommendations to Jimmy and Dee Haslam:

1. Fire Sashi Brown and Paul DePodesta right away. It's not fair for the Browns to be looking at Manning or anyone else if these guys know they're going to be lame ducks. DePodesta can start maneuvering to get back into baseball and Brown will certainly have the opportunity to be someone's legal counsel/cap strategist. Let Andrew Berry handle football operations on an interim basis for the remainder of the season. 

Berry came to the Browns after seven years with the Indianapolis Colts, so its plausible that if (and it's a big if) Manning comes to Cleveland,[url=http://www.texansfootballauthentic.com/c.j.-fiedorowicz-jersey-authentic]Womens C. J. Fiedorowicz Jersey[/url], Berry can certainly look to make an impression on whomever the Browns eventually hire. , there would be some familiarity there. And if not

2. Keep Hue Jackson and his staff intact for the rest of the season. I think DeShone Kizer deserves to have 10 more games of Jackson's tutelage and I'd like to see how this team would react if the cold war between coaching staff and front office is stopped by the firing of Brown and DePodesta. 

3. Bring in a consigliere. What am I talking about, Robert Duvall's character Tom Hagen was the consigliere to Vito Corleone.  , you ask? A consigliere is an adviser or counselor. If you've ever seen The Godfather

Jimmy and Dee need a football consigliere. Someone who can advise them in the task of rebuilding an NFL front office. My preference would be former Browns and Giants GM Ernie Accorsi, he might be agreeable to coming back to his former team. , but he is currently the consigliere in Detroit. Perhaps after a couple of years helping out the Lions

If you can't get Accorsi, try Hall of Famer Ron Wolf, but doesn't need to be back in the fold full-time. , or Charlie Casserly. Call Carl Peterson, Gil Brandt or Bill Polian. Just get someone who will have your best interests in mind when it comes to football operations and can be a part of the interview process. Someone who has had proven success

4. Don't settle. Get the person you want and then back off. Give said person full control of the 53-man roster and power to hire and fire those in player personnel, scouting, but don't step on their toes., and the head coach. Work with this person to help shape the culture you want for the Cleveland Browns

After 24 hours of sitting and thinking about this, there are no shortage of qualified candidates out there: 

What the Browns are doing now simply isn't working. They are regressing and it's time for the Haslams to admit defeat, and start again., get up off the mat
