John Dorsey was named General Manager of the Cleveland Browns on December 7, 2017. Following a six-year playing career as a linebacker with the Green Bay Packers, Dorsey has worked in NFL player personnel for 26 years, including four years as the General Manager of the Kansas City Chiefs. During those 26 seasons, he has helped his teams to 19 playoff berths, 11 divisional titles, three conference championships and two Super Bowl wins.
During his first offseason at the helm with the Browns, Dorsey orchestrated trades that landed Pro Bowl QB Tyrod Taylor, Pro Bowl WR Jarvis Landry and former first-round DB Damarious Randall. In free agency, the team signed 10 unrestricted free agents and during the 2018 NFL Draft, the Browns selected nine players, including QB Baker Mayfield (first overall) and DB Denzel Ward (fourth overall). The team also signed multi-year extensions with Landry and RB Duke Johnson Jr.
