CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam formally introduced John Dorsey as the team’s new general manager.
“This is one of the most iconic fan bases,” said Dorsey during Friday’s press conference. “We want to be competitive every year.”
Dorsey, a former NFL linebacker with the Green Bay Packers, has worked for 26 years in NFL player personnel positions. Most recently, Dorsey served as the General Manager of the Kansas City Chiefs.
“I can do my job with the best of my peers in the National Football League,” says Dorsey. “I know I’m going to sit here and work and I’m going to do everything that my god-given ability has given me and try to do it.”
The lack of a talented quarterback has been the Browns problem for over a decade. Since 1999, the Browns have started more than two dozen quarterbacks.
“The Cleveland Browns are not going to be successful until we get a quarterback” said Haslam.
“That will be John’s No. 1 priority,” said Haslam.
Dorsey was named to the position Thursday night, hours after former Executive VP of Football Operations Sashi Brown was fired.
