Report: John Dorsey to offer lifetime contract to Chris Tabor

BEREA, Ohio — The Browns sent waves through the NFL community last week by letting Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown go and swiftly hiring John Dorsey as GM.

This week, it is Dorsey making moves, including releasing veteran wide receiver/thief Kenny Britt. Then, it was announced Wednesday from Berea that Dorsey intends to offer special teams coordinator Chris Tabor a lifetime contract. Tabor, one of the team’s longest-tenured employees, joined the staff in 2011 under Pat Shurmur.

Somehow one constant through the Browns’ numerous regimes over the last seven years has been Tabor, who has helped make the Browns special teams unit mediocre. Tabor has outlasted multiple coaches and GMs, and now Dorsey is rewarding him with a lifetime contract.

“Chris has been a consistent part of this organization for the past six years,” Dorsey said. “While both offense and defense have struggled, Tabor’s special teams unit has consistently been not the worst in the NFL.”

Dorsey also mentioned the possibility that Tabor may or may not have some secret documents that could incriminate Pilot Flying J, but Dorsey refused to comment on how that affects his contract status.
