Cleveland Browns Executive Vice President Bryan Wiedmeier, who spent more than 35 years working in the NFL as a leader of teams’ business endeavors, died Tuesday at the age of 57, according to the team.
The Browns reported Wiedmeier, at the age of 54, was diagnosed with Stage Four brain cancer in October 2012. One week later, after undergoing surgery to remove a glioblastoma tumor, Wiedmeier attended a Browns home game against the Chargers and was awarded a game ball from then-coach Pat Shurmur following the 7-6 victory.
Given 15 months to live, Wiedmeier made it nearly four years, the Browns said. In June 2014, nearly two years removed from the surgery, Wiedmeier signed a contract extension with the Browns.
