The Cleveland Browns finally have a new GM. After several candidates decided not to accept the job, the team settled on Andrew Berry.
He was previously with the Browns organization. But, most recently, he was the Philadelphia Eagles Vice President of Football Operations.
He took over that position after Joe Douglas departed the franchise. Douglas left to become the New York Jets GM this past May.
For three seasons, Berry was the Browns Vice President of Player Personnel. He worked for the team from 2016 through 2018.
Berry became the front runner for the position after Minnesota Vikings Vice President, Player Personnel/Assistant GM George Paton turned down the job. Paton felt he was in a better position with the Vikings, which caused him to turn down the opportunity.
Berry was one of two known candidates last remaining for the job. The other was New England Patriots Director of Collegiate Scouting Monti Ossenfort.
At 32-years-old, Berry is now the youngest GM in all of four major sports (NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL). He will now work side-by-side with new head coach Kevin Stefanski.
Like Stefanski, Berry has to put a staff to hire. It is going to be important on who he brings in to support him.
