CLEVELAND- Browns coach Hue Jackson is a man of his word.  Jackson will jump into Lake Erie on June 1, fulfilling a promise he made following his first season in Cleveland.

Back in 2016,  when the Browns had a 1-15 season, Hue vowed to take a dip in the lake if the team finished with that record the following year.  As you painfully recall, the Browns were winless last season.

So on June 1, the jump will take place in a private location. Jackson also plans to donate $100 for every Browns employee who takes the plunge with him. Proceeds  will go toward the Hue Jackson Foundation, which combats Human trafficking across Northeast Ohio.
