Browns VP upbeat, says team committed to becoming playoff contender

An 0-4 start does not mean the Cleveland Browns cannot win in 2017, but the team remains firmly committed to a long-term rebuild with youth, said vice president of football operations Sashi Brown on Wednesday.

“We’re committed to continuing to work toward building this roster and becoming a perennial playoff team, and we’re on the way toward that,” Brown said.

Further, the performance of the Seattle offense in road games the past two seasons — the Seahawks are 3-6-1 in regular-season road games since the beginning of 2016 — raises questions about Wilson’s consistency even as it obviously also underlines concerns about the group around him. We’re nitpicking here, and most teams would trade what they have at quarterback for a young, dynamic champion like Wilson. But the volatility of this situation overall — plus legit questions about the viability of Austin Davis as a backup — keeps this rank from being higher.

In explaining where the Browns are as a team in what owner Jimmy Haslam called a “multiyear rebuild,” Brown said the team would “not overreact to four games” but would measure progress incrementally.

“We are always going to be focused on the underlying progress, how Cheap Jerseys And Hats From China some of our Cheap Ireland Jerseys players are coming together, what those losses look like,” Brown said.
