Warfield leaves Browns' front office

BEREA, Ohio -- Browns Hall of Fame wide receiver Paul Warfield has retired from his position in Cleveland's front office.

Warfield has served as a senior adviser to the club's general manager for the past six seasons. He previously worked as a director of player relations with the Browns.

Warfield's retirement comes one week after the team stripped Jim Brown of his title as executive adviser. Brown had served as a consultant for Browns owner Randy Lerner the past few years. He will remain involved with the team.

Warfield played for Cleveland from 1964 to 1969. He was enshrined in Canton in 1983, following a 13-year career with the Browns and Miami Dolphins.

He finished with 427 catches for 8,565 yards and 85 touchdowns.
