Browns fired GM Ray Farmer.
Kevin Costner would have made a better GM than Farmer. Since being hired as the head of the personnel department ahead of the 2014 season, the Browns have posted 7-9 and 3-13 seasons, seemingly getting far worse in year two. Armed with two first-round picks in each of his two seasons as GM, Farmer delivered CB Justin Gilbert, Johnny Manziel, NT Danny Shelton, and OL Cam Erving. Gilbert is a certified bust, and there were whispers he may even be moved to wide receiver before those talks went away. Manziel may never play another down for the Browns. Shelton and Erving each had rough rookie seasons. Farmer also got in trouble with the league for texting coaches on the sideline during games. Owner Jimmy Haslam will again start from scratch.

Date:

The Browns will fire GM Ray Farmer.

Cleveland is moving on from both Farmer and coach Mike Pettine. Owner Jimmy Haslam reportedly plans to "blow things up" and is already seeking replacements. The firings should come as soon as Sunday night.
Jan 2 - 9:14 PM

Browns fired OL coach Andy Moeller.

In a press release, the sides said they "agreed to part ways." Moeller was accused of assaulting his fiancee earlier this month and had been suspended indefinitely by the Browns. He allegedly tried to "strangle and beat up" his fiancee. Moeller, 51, has been arrested several times in alcohol-related incidents.

Suspended Browns OL coach Andy Moeller allegedly assaulted a female guest at his home over the weekend.

The woman is believed to be Moeller's girlfriend. Or maybe ex-girlfriend now. But being that she didn't live in the residence, it's not classified as a "domestic" issue, merely your simple assault. Charges have yet to be filed by the prosecutor. Either way, Moeller has been suspended indefinitely by the team.

Suspended Browns OL coach Andy Moeller's arrest was related to a "domestic issue."

Moeller has a history of alcohol-related arrests. Already suspended indefinitely by the Browns, Moeller is staring at a formal six-game ban from the league.

Browns suspended OL coach Andy Moeller indefinitely for an incident that took place over the Labor Day Weekend.

Moeller has a long history of drinking-related issues, and was suspended two games in 2011 by the Ravens when he was Baltimore's offensive line coach. The exact reason for Moeller's latest ban is unknown. Moeller joins GM Ray Farmer on suspension to open the year. The Browns are a clown car and all those affiliated with the organization are just along for the ride.

Browns GM Ray Farmer has been suspended four games without pay for illegal gameday texting.

After an investigation, the NFL has deemed that Farmer acted as a lone gunman when he attempted to text playcalls to the sidelines during 2014 games. So they haven't lost a draft pick, but have been fined $250,000 and will have to go at it without Farmer for the first month of 2015. He won't even be allowed in the team facility, although that may be a good thing. In Farmer's first year as an NFL GM, he blew two first-round draft picks (Johnny Manziel, Justin Gilbert), chased talented OC Kyle Shanahan away and assembled bottom-barrel offensive talent.

The Browns are not expected to lose a draft pick for Text-gate.

Browns GM Ray Farmer admitted that he attempted to text playcalls to the sidelines during 2014 games. Somehow, the Browns are getting off easy as punishment will be levied mostly against the GM himself and not the team. Farmer's first year as an NFL GM was nothing short of a train wreck, with this texting scandal the cherry on top. Expect the franchise to be fined heavily as well.

Browns GM Ray Farmer admitted at the NFL Combine that he attempted to text playcalls in to the sidelines during 2014 games.

"Sometimes, the emotions get the best of you," was Farmer's explanation. The Browns will likely face league-imposed sanctions in the very near future. Farmer's foibles led directly to the departure of OC Kyle Shanahan. When combined with blowing first-round picks on Justin Gilbert and Johnny Manziel, Farmer's first year as Browns GM was a rough one to be kind.

ESPN Cleveland expects the NFL to "come down hard" on the Browns for embattled GM Ray Farmer allegedly texting in playcalls to the sidelines.

Characterizing this an "Offseason from Hell," beat writer Tony Grossi expects the Browns to face some "combination of fines, suspensions or draft choices taken away." Johnny Manziel is in rehab, Josh Gordon is already done for 2015, OC Kyle Shanahan essentially quit due to organizational dysfunction, and 2014 No. 8 overall pick Justin Gilbert already looks like a lost cause. And now the Browns may lose 2015 draft choices.

The Browns could be fined and docked a draft pick, while GM Ray Farmer is facing a multi-game suspension as a result of "TextGate."

The Browns are having one heck of a start to the offseason. Johnny Manziel is in rehab, Josh Gordon has been banned for one year, and now the team is staring at stiff penalties because a front-office member -- suspected to be Farmer -- was texting coaches on the sidelines during games this past season. The NFL is expected to wrap up its investigation into the matter either this week or next.

An anonymous general manager tells the Cleveland Plain Dealer "(he'll) do business with the Browns again" after the team fired GM Mike Lombardi and CEO Joe Banner on Tuesday.

"I'm not the only one that feels this way," the rival executive added. Lombardi has long been a polarizing figure, as evidenced by his embarrassingly-short tenure in Cleveland. Per reporter Mary Kay Cabot, head-coaching candidates Bill O'Brien and Ken Whisenhunt declined interviews with the Browns because of the presence of Lombardi and/or Banner. Although we still think the move was rash and short-sighted for a team that desperately needs to establish some stability, canning Lombardi and Banner might actually help the Browns' standing around the league.

Browns promoted assistant GM Ray Farmer to general manager and fired GM Mike Lombardi.

CEO Joe Banner has also been relieved of his duties and will be out of the organization by May. So, the madness in Cleveland continues on. Lombardi and Banner joined the Browns, along with coach Rob Chudzinski, ahead of the 2013 season, and now all three have been fired a year into the job. This also partly explains why Farmer, 39, pulled out of the running for the Dolphins' GM job last month. While it's been a crazy time in Cleveland, it's arguable that the Browns are actually upgrading with this move. Farmer is a well-respected personnel man, while Lombardi was merely a figurehead. Owner Jimmy Haslam will allow Farmer and new coach Mike Pettine -- who we assume is safe -- to handle things for at least the next couple seasons, we'd imagine.
