Cleveland Browns GM Ray Farmer has been fired

Cleveland Browns general manager, Ray Farmer, has been fired after two seasons, according to multiple reports.

Apparently, the Ray Farmer era in Cleveland was over before Sunday's game against the Steelers even started. 

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com and NFL Network, Farmer met with Browns owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam and was relieved of his duties, prior to Cleveland's 28-12 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday afternoon.

The OBR's Lane Adkins reported the news in the Fast Lane, as well.

Coming to Cleveland as the team's assistant general manager in 2013, Famer was promoted to the position of general manager prior to the 2014 season. 

Farmer, like Browns head coach Mike Pettine, as accrued a 10-22 record with the Browns over the past two seasons.

Though the news has not been confirmed by the team, there have been multiple reports linking Browns current Executive Vice President, General Counsel, Sashi Brown, to the apparently open GM position in Cleveland.

Brown came to the Browns from the Jacksonville Jaguars and has been an up-ad-coming name around the league for his analytical approach to the football.
