When was hired as the Cleveland Browns general manager, optimism again surrounded the organization in hopes of getting the team on the right road. Unfortunately, that has not come true and the roster decisions have been getting worse.

After years of making the wrong player personnel decisions, Ray Farmer was thought to be the answer for the Cleveland Browns in 2014. Though he has only been general manager for two seasons, it has been obvious Farmer has not succeeded from the start.

From not re-signing Browns that deserved another contract with Cleveland, signing free agent duds, and allowing others to help make draft decisions, Farmer has done a bad job.

Despite being in charge of only two free agent periods and two NFL drafts, his impact on the team will be felt for years to come. The fact that owner Jimmy Haslam has made a presence on roster decisions also does not help Farmer or the team in general.

Cleveland was a very successful and highly respected organization but now they do not have that respect anymore. With the Browns currently 2-9 and will be starting their third quarterback of the season tomorrow, it will be surprising if Farmer gets to continue in his role this offseason.

There is no wrong answer with his bad moves, because they are all not good regardless of the order. With that said, here are the top five worst decisions made by Farmer.
