New Browns General Manager John Dorsey brought in plenty of his own guys already. Now that the draft is over, the changes are continuing in his personnel department.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns are letting go a pair of long-time personnel staffers who had survived multiple regime changes there, and no longer have an exclusive deal with former NFL G.M. Scot McCloughan.
McCloughan is going back to consulting for anyone who wants to pay him for his scouting opinions.
He also worked against Tannehill, albeit in a friendly competition that McMillan said helped push him on his way to a full recovery.
We got our surgery on the same exact day, McMillan said, via the Miami Herald. We starting rehab on the same exact day. From Day 1, it was always a competition. Who could walk without their crutches first? Who could run full speed underwater first? It was just little stuff. Who can get a bigger quad muscle? It was just really stupid stuff like that to keep competing with each other.
McMillan was set for a major role in the middle of the Dolphins defense last year and the team hopes to have him using his competitive juices to fill it for a longer stretch this season.
Still, with at least two owners abstaining (49ers CEO Jed York and Raiders owner Mark Davis) and at least one other owner (Jets CEO Christopher Johnson) apparently willing to defy the NFL’s no-protest position and treat the ensuing fines like parking tickets without punishing any protesting players, it wasn’t really unanimous. Even though the NFL said it was.
Unanimous or not, the external consensus seems to be that the NFL managed to take a bad situation that had assumed a fairly low profile and both make it worse and give it a much higher profile. Which means that, at a time the league surely wishes this one was over, it’s far from it.
Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor had some advice for Randall when it comes to picking sides and making your opinion public on social media.
Don’t hit send, he said. Should have been smarter about the whole situation, about the tweet. Whether you feel that way or not, don’t tweet it.
Coach Hue Jackson, who plans to jump into Lake Erie on Friday to make good on a promise he made when the team was going 0-16 last season, knew Randall would get some heat for his tweet.
I think what Damarious found out is that there are a lot of passionate Cleveland fans here, and you’ve got to be careful about what you say, Jackson said. I don’t think he meant any harm. I think he has a love and a respect for Curry, obviously. But he found out that, ‘Hey, look, in this city it’s about the Cavaliers and LeBron James.
