The Cleveland Browns say assistant general manager Ray Farmer is staying with the team after withdrawing from consideration for the job of general manager with the Miami Dolphins.

Farmer was interviewed by the Dolphins nearly two weeks ago and turned down their invitation for a second interview. The team is expected to interview finalists soon, with Titans vice president of player personnel Lake Dawson and Dolphins assistant general manager Brian Gaine considered frontrunners.

The Dolphins are searching to replace Jeff Ireland, whose six-year stint as GM ended Jan. 7 when he and owner Stephen Ross agreed to part ways.

Miami faded late in the season to finish 8-8 and hasn't been above .500 since 2008, the longest such stretch in franchise history.
