Cleveland Browns: What did Sashi Brown say about his firing?

The NFL season is nearing a close, which only can mean one thing: It's time for the Cleveland Browns to fire someone.

The Cleveland Browns are the last winless team in the National Football League, their rookie quarterback has been something close to a disaster and the general manager who'd been tasked with turning this franchise around has just been fired.

While the Browns did decide to move on from Brown on Thursday, team owner Jimmy Haslam has made it clear that Hue Jackson will remain Cleveland's head coach next season. Brown, who headed the Browns personnel department for the past two years, was the Browns eighth general manager since the team returned to Cleveland in 1999. Jackson called Brown "a good person and a heck of a worker" as he looked ahead to a four-game stretch, in which Cleveland looks to pick up its first win of the season, and beyond to a 2018 season, when Jackson and the Browns hope to be much, much better than they've been en route to a 1-27 mark since Brown and Jackson took over in their respective roles in 2016.

Jackson said being aligned with the front office is critical to turning the 1-27 record around. Assuming nothing changes and Jackson is retained - Haslam can always change his mind if his preferred general manager demands the power to name his own coach - he would become the first Browns head coach to make it to a third year since Romeo Crennel, who coached the Browns from 2005-2008. "We thank Sashi for all his hard work and dedication to the Cleveland Browns".

Shooting reported at high school in New Mexico
Numbers of the injured have not been confirmed, but Bloomfield Police Departmented said there had been a "shooting". Three people are dead, including the shooter, in a shooting at a high school Thursday.

Those two clubs, however, have young quarterbacks - Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson - whose early success might be most responsible for Brown getting fired. Now the Browns can cross off that route knowing Brown tried a different approach and can move on to something else.

The Browns have stockpiled picks for future drafts, with six additional picks in April's draft. That was a mistake, but mistakes are okay, as long as you learn from them. "At the end as I told you guys, it is about winning and losing so we have to get to that as fast as we can".

"I'm just trying to digest everything", said 10-time Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas, who was lost for the season with a triceps injury.
