The date is set.
On Monday, Jackson announced that he will jump into Lake Erie on June 1, a pledge that he had made a year ago should the Browns not improve on their 1-15 record from 2016.
And he will not be the only Browns member to take the plunge.
Following their disastrous 2016 campaign, Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson vowed that the team would not endure another year like the one they did. If you ask me, that's cheating. "Somebody'll get me out". He's donating $100 to his foundation for any Browns employee who joins him (Baker Mayfield?), and hopes to "cleanse" the losing of the past two seasons. "That is the type of person I am, so that is what we have to do".
Cleveland has done a good job of taking a negative and spinning it into a positive, billing it as both a charitable event and a cleansing of the franchise.
What Jackson may lack in wins, he more than makes up for in jumping into disgusting lakes for good causes.
Jackson had a stent put in his heart in a 2014 procedure. It's the latest of at least a handful of smart moves made by the organization in recent months.
Well, the Browns made history as the second National Football League team to go 0-16 and now it's time for Jackson to pay up.
