The Browns sent defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah to the Chiefs on Monday. He was the 12th inherited player Browns General Manager John Dorsey has traded, according to Field Yates of ESPN.

Offensive guard Kevin Zeitler, safety Jabrill Peppers, receiver Josh Gordon, defensive lineman Danny Shelton, cornerback Jason McCourty, offensive lineman Shon Coleman, cornerback Jamar Taylor, quarterback DeShone Kizer, quarterback Kevin Hogan, receiver Corey Coleman and quarterback Cody Kessler are the others shipped out by Dorsey.

Ogbah’s departure leaves only six players of the 24 selections made by former vice president of football operations Sashi Brown in two drafts, according to Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com. Linebacker Joe Schobert, tight end Seth DeValve and receiver Rashard Higgins remain from the 2016 draft and defensive end Myles Garrett, tight end David Njoku and defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi from 2017.

Dorsey has left his stamp on the Browns, leaving no question it is his team now.

  1. But, but, but Hue Jackson was clearly the problem with all of that talent he had. Btw, Garret would be Trubisky if Brown had gotten his way on that one too, and they’ve be trying to figure out what to do with him too.

  2. Not sold on the Browns….there are tons of examples of stacked teams that have flopped like a FIFA star….and with a rookie head coach? we’ll see….

    —————————

    Hue Jackson was only interested in one thing, Hue Jackson. Worst coach in the league (or best coach if you ask him). Just because a number of those players are no longer on the team doesn’t mean they were garbage.

    3 of those players have superbowl rings courtesy of Dorsey trading them to away. McCourtney was graded the 11th best cover corner in the league last year.

    I’d say, other than at QB, Sashi’s drafts rate better than many highly regarded GMs. You also have to wonder how much coaching has to do with the QB failures. Baker Mayfield would still be on the bench if Hue hadn’t been fired and Carlos Hyde would still be the #1 RB if Dorsey hadn’t removed him as an option.

    Hue Jackson made Jeff Fisher look competent and much like Fisher, noone could understand why he still had a job.

    The fact is that when he was their coach their roster was beyond terrible, but I read a story here every week about how the coaching was to blame. Yet Dorsey has gotten rid of nearly every draft pick Brown and Berry made, and as was well documented, they wanted Trubisky not Garret. Jackson had to stand on the table for the one exceptional talent they did take. Think about that. Oh, and bringing up someone who went to get a ring with the greatest coach of all time isn’t helping your argument.

  5. I could be wrong. I said it from the git-go that if the owner stays out of operations and leaves the on-field matters to the football people, Cleveland will be back.

    The owner may be good at running truck stops … But now he’s got professionals with a proven track record.

    I’m pulling for these guys … the front office, not so much the players. The players get paid to play a kid’s game and god bless them … the front office guys are the adults moving the chess pieces.

    This site has a thing against stating the truth about the Hue Jackson era so don’t expect a lot of support. 0 coaches could have won with those rosters he had in Cleveland and ESPN exposed that Jackson had to have temper tantrums just to get Miles Garrett who was supposed to be a no brainer pick. On top of that 2019 proved the problem wasn’t Jackson when he had more wins with one good offseason than he did in both Sashi years combined not to mention people magically forgot that Sashi got fired after forgetting to turn in trade paperwork but people want to pretend the guy was some genius who just didn’t get to realize his plan (of sabotaging the team). Was Hue a hall of fame coach?… absolutely not but he was an 8-8 coach at best that was shackled to a team that was tanking. When you fire 5 coaches (now 6) in 6 years the problem isn’t the coaches.
