Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the belief within the Browns is that HC Hue Jackson will want some say when it comes to picking players moving forward.
Rapoport adds that Jackson understands to the power structure he agreed to when taking the job a few years ago, but the belief is that he wants his voice heard alongside executives such as Sashi Brown, Andrew Berry, Paul DePodesta among others.
Browns owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam reportedly met with players this past Monday to offer their support and detail their thoughts regarding the disappointing season.
According to Rapoport, the Haslams told the players they knew rebuilding would take time and while everyone wants to win, their work and effort down the stretch has been appreciated. Rapoport adds that the owners wanted to reassure the players that their fight has not gone unnoticed.
Rapoport says that while some players appreciated the support, others are still sick of losing and the conversation didn’t do much for them.
Other reports have said that the Browns could make a run at trying to bring in Peyton Manning to be a high-level executive to oversee the team (NFLTR).
