Report: Cleveland Browns expected to fire general manager Ray Farmer

Monday December 28th, 2015

The Cleveland Browns are expected to retain coach Mike Pettine and fire general manager Ray Farmer, reports Jason Cole of Bleacher Report.

The Browns lost 17–13 to the Chiefs on Sunday, dropping them to 3–12. Farmer has been Cleveland’s general manager since 2014, after previously serving as the team’s assistant general manager for a season. 

Pettine was hired to coach the team before the 2014 season, going 7–9 in his first year at the helm. 

Farmer was responsible for drafting cornerback Justin Gilbert and quarterback Johnny Manziel in the first round of 2014 NFL Draft, and guard Cameron Erving in the first round earlier this year, all of whom have struggled.
