Farmer, 46, began his career as a scout for the Falcons from 2002-2005 before becoming the Chiefs’ director of pro personnel until 2012.
The Browns hired him as their assistant general manager in 2013 and he was promoted to their official GM position for the next two years.
His time in Cleveland was highlighted by him being suspended four games and fined after admitting to texting down to the sidelines in the middle of a game during the 2015 season.
Farmer was fired by the Browns in January of 2016. He finished with a record of 10-22 in his two years in Cleveland.
