CLEVELAND (AP) -Cleveland Browns general manager Phil Savage sent an e-mail containing an expletive in response to a disparaging e-mail he received during the team's Monday night game against Buffalo, the team confirmed Thursday.
Coach Romeo Crennel confirmed Thursday that Savage sent the e-mail, which was first reported on sports blog deadspin.com.
Crennel says he understands Savage's frustration and spoke with him Thursday about the incident. Crennel says it's unfortunate that it happened, adding ``in tough times, tough things happen.''
The Browns are a disappointing 4-6 in a tumultuous season that's included a quarterback change and a team dispute with tight end Kellen Winslow over disclosing his hospitalization for a staph infection.
