CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The Cleveland Browns fired Executive Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown on Thursday.

The Browns were 1-27 under Brown.

Now the organization has to find a new general manager. 

Here are three reasons someone would want to take the job:

1. Draft Picks

  • Cleveland has five picks in the first two rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft
  • There is a very good chance the Browns will have two picks in the first ten selections of the draft
  • Mock drafts list five quarterbacks will be selected in the first round

2. Salary Cap

  • Overthecap.com is reporting the Browns will have $117 million in cap space next year
  • Kirk Cousins, Demarcus Lawrence and Le'Veon Bell are potential free agents this offseason 

3. Reputation

  • The Browns have not made the playoffs since 2002
  • Cleveland has passed on franchise quarterbacks
  • The next general manager of the Browns to help take the team to the postseason will be a hero to Northeast Ohio
  • The GM would have the prestige of turning around one of the worst organizations in sports
