The Cleveland Browns have hired Sashi Brown away from the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to a report by Jason LaCanfora of CBS. Brown handled contracts and negotiations for the Jaguars and will take on the same role for the Cleveland Browns, according to LaCanfora.
Brown originally joined the Jaguars in the 2005 offseason. During his seven seasons with the Jaguars, Brown handled contract negotiation, employment matters, insurance and risk management, intellectual property and licensing issues and litigation management.
It is said that Brown is who caught the clause in Tim Tebow's contract when the Denver Broncos were trying to trade him, which required teams to pay back part of a salary advance that the Broncos had given Tebow.
The loss of Brown isn't a huge surprise, as Shad Khan began shaking up the front office last season when he let go of long time employee Paul Vance. There is no word yet on who will replace Brown.
