CLEVELAND (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says the Browns have given Miami permission to interview Cleveland assistant general manager Ray Farmer for the Dolphins' GM opening.

The Dolphins and GM Jeff Ireland parted ways earlier this week after six seasons. Miami has reached out to meet with Farmer, said the person who spoke Thursday to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the discussions.

Farmer joined the Browns in March after seven seasons in Kansas City's front office. When Farmer came to Cleveland, Michael Lombardi's title was switched from vice president of player personnel to GM.

In his first season in Cleveland, Farmer kept a low public profile while assisting Lombardi in overseeing the pro and college scouting departments.

Farmer played linebacker in the NFL before a knee injury ended his career.
