Odell Beckham Jr. has had his simple battery arrest warrant rescinded, the Cleveland Browns wide receiver's attorney confirmed on Saturday. Daniel Davillier, Beckham's lawyer, released a statement confirming no charges against the 27-year-old have been sought because the security officer from New Orleans Police Department involved does not want to pursue the matter. NFL star Beckham appeared to slap the officer's buttocks in the LSU locker room during the celebrations after their 42-25 victory over Clemson in the National Championship Game.

The New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) has obtained an arrest warrant for NFL star Odell Beckham Jr. on a charge of simple battery. The alleged incident occurred at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Monday, when Cleveland Browns wide receiver Beckham was in attendance to watch his alma mater LSU defeat Clemson in the National Championship Game. Footage emerged of Beckham appearing to slap a security officer's buttocks in the LSU locker room during the celebrations after their 42-25 victory.

Kevin Stefanski coached running backs, tight ends and quarterbacks in Minnesota. The Vikings offensive coordinator, who came close to getting Cleveland's job last year but finished second to Freddie Kitchens, was hired as the Browns new coach - their 10th since 1999 - on Sunday, a person familiar with the team's decision and plans told The Associated Press. Stefanski agreed to accept the position a day after Minnesota's season ended with a 27-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC playoffs, according to the person who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the sides have yet to finalize a contract.

All signs point toward Josh McDaniels staying in New England. The Patriots offensive coordinator will not become the next head coach of the Cleveland Browns as they've hired Minnesota Vikings OC Kevin Stefanski for the position, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The Cleveland Browns are the only NFL team without a head coach. Two head coaching vacancies were filled Tuesday when the Carolina Panthers hired Baylor's Matt Rhule and the New York Giants reportedly chose New England Patriots special teams coordinator Joe Judge. The Browns now have their pick of the best remaining candidates, and at least three of them will interview with Cleveland this week, per NFL Media's Tom Pelissero.

Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey resigned two days after the team fired coach Freddie Kitchens. Dorsey's stunning departure on Tuesday came after he met with owner Jimmy Haslam, who is once again with his wife, Dee, cleaning house and restructuring the front office after a disappointing 6-10 season. The Browns are in the preliminary stages of their coaching search, which will be affected by Dorsey leaving.

The Cleveland Browns will host former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy on Thursday for their head coaching vacancy, per Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. McCarthy is also set to interview with the New York Giants this weekend and has already met with the Carolina Panthers for their openings. After also deciding to part ways with General Manager John Dorsey on Tuesday, the Browns could try to pair McCarthy with current Browns Assistant G.M. Eliot Wolf to lead the front office.

The Cleveland Browns parted ways with general manager John Dorsey on Tuesday after failing to come to an agreement on a restructuring of the front office. The decision to move on from Dorsey, 59, after two years comes two days after the Browns fired first-year head coach Freddie Kitchens. Dorsey arrived in Cleveland in December 2017 as the team was in the midst of an 0-16 season.

While it's probably not much comfort for Freddie Kitchens and Pat Shurmur, the NFL's normally torrid slate of head coach firings has been pretty mild so far in the wake of the league's final week of games. The Cleveland Browns, following a massively disappointing 6-10 season, let go of Kitchens on Sunday evening after just one tumultuous season that saw the long-suffering franchise fall well short of lofty expectations. The New York Giants announced Monday they're moving on from Pat Shurmur, whom they'll look to replace after just two unfruitful seasons.
