Berry was previously in the Cleveland front office as the vice president of player personnel. He spent last season in a similar position with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam, as well as newly-hired Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski, released a statement last month about Berry’s hiring.

In three seasons with the Browns, the former Harvard University student-athlete helped with talent evaluation and scouting prospects.

“I’m honored and blessed to lead the Football Operations of the Cleveland Browns," Berry said. "I’m appreciative of the Haslam family for entrusting me to be a steward of a franchise that is so rich in tradition and history. The passion for football courses through the veins of Northeast Ohio in a manner that is unique to that of any other region. Our fan base’s devotion to the Browns is the catalyst for such affection for the sport. Rewarding YOU all—our loyal and faithful Dawg Pound—will energize and motivate me daily to attack the challenge ahead of us. It is for that reason that I am excited to partner with Kevin Stefanski—a coach I know our city will embrace because of his leadership skills, work ethic, humility and character—to work tirelessly and with immediate urgency toward building a winning organization that will make the people of Cleveland proud.”

The 32-year-old is now the youngest general manager in NFL history.
