Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown, who had served as the Browns' executive advisor since the 2005 season, has relinquished his official title.
Spokesman Neal Gulkis said Brown will continue to be around the team and that he recently spoke to the Browns' rookie class.
Brown, 74, has been one of owner Randy Lerner's most trusted advisors. Brown also developed a close relationship with several players, including former running back Jamal Lewis.
Hall of Fame receiver Paul Warfield's role is also reportedly being evaluated. Warfield has been a special assignment scout and special assistant to the general manager since 2004.
Both Brown and Warfield are still listed on the Browns' organizational list on the team's web site.
