Sashi Brown on being named Browns Executive Vice President of Football Operations
"My focus in heading up our football operations will be building the best department possible and incorporating extensive resources so that we can maximize our ability to make the best decisions for the Cleveland Browns. We must capitalize on every opportunity to develop our players to the fullest. Having spent 11 years in the league, working as a football executive, I have a deep respect for the critical role of talent evaluation, and we will look to find an individual who excels in that area and is a good leader for the scouts and personnel. My family and I have quickly embraced living in Northeast Ohio and want nothing more than to be a part of a successful turnaround for the Browns."

"Sashi's leadership, strategic thinking and appreciation for the importance of alignment between coaching and football operations will be tremendous assets for our football team in his new role. We need to be more comprehensive in our approach to personnel, and Sashi's ability to pull information together from many different sources to enhance the efforts of our personnel department will ideally help us have more success in our football decisions. In addition, Sashi understands how critical it is to focus on the short and long-term process of team building, and that will positively impact our organization."
