  USC QB Sam Darnold says he's not ducking the Browns in NFL Draft The USC quarterback said he is not returning to the Trojans so he can avoid being picked No. 1 overall by the Browns. Whether the Trojans quarterback will declare for the 2018 NFL Draft has been a hot topic this season, and when Darnold announced he would stay at USC, many speculated it was so he wouldn't be picked by the currently winless Browns. © (Getty Images) Sam Darnold "I didn't say anything about the Browns," Darnold told reporters after practice, via ESPN.com.

CLEVELAND (AP) — A person familiar with the decisions says the Cleveland Browns have fired Sashi Brown, the club’s vice president of football operations.

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, said the person who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the move.

ESPN was first to report Brown’s dismissal.

The firing is not unexpected since the Browns are 0-12 this season and have gone 1-27 under Brown’s guidance. The team passed up a chance to draft quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson in the past two drafts and Cleveland has shown little sign of improvement since Brown took over.

Brown had no experience in evaluating players as he primarily handled the team’s salary cap before he was promoted by the Haslams.
