Are the Cleveland Browns Progressing or Regressing?

Sashi Brown took over the role of Executive Vice President for the Cleveland Browns on January 3, 2016. A controversial hire due to his law and non-football background, Brown sought to bring a statistical based approach to a front office that has seen inconsistency after inconsistency.

Today we have stand just under a third of the way through the season and are looking at another winless team for a second consecutive year. During a full rebuilding process, the question becomes are the Cleveland Browns moving forward or are they looking to continue down the path of mediocrity and constant turnover?

When Sashi took over the role, one thing became obvious. He was looking to completely rebuild this team from scratch. Cleveland’s free agency class in 2016 featured some big name free agents that many teams would not allow to even hit free agency.

Sashi not only let them hit free agency, but freely walk. Critical pieces to the offensive line, Alex Mack and Mitchell Schwartz were let go and replaced by Cam Erving and Austin Pasztor.

Former Pro Bowl safety Tashaun Gipson could leave for Jordan Poyer to start. Other notable names that left in that offseason include WR Travis Benjamin, LB Craig Robertson, and special teamer Johnson Bademosi.
