Browns' Jackson sets date for Lake Erie plunge

Browns' Jackson sets date for Lake Erie plunge

On Monday, Jackson announced that he will jump into Lake Erie on June 1, a pledge that he had made previous year should the Browns not improve on their 1-15 record from 2016. They went winless in 2017.

The coach will donate $100 to his foundation, which combats human trafficking across Northeast Ohio, for every Browns employee who joins him in jumping into Lake Erie. I know me and I know these guys too well. They promptly went 0-16, but Jackson is keeping his word and doing some good with it, according to the team's official website.

Of course there are the Browns fans that really do just want Jackson to go jump in a lake, as in get fired, but for once that doesn't appear to be the case.

Here is Jackson, himself, making the announcement.

Of course, the Cavs missing 14 straight 3-pointers helped. "We got a lot of guys where we just don't care", Marcus Smart said. How about this answer: "We weren't ready to work on defense as hard as they were working on offense". "It's not just me".

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.

Jackson said earlier in the year that the plunge will be a symbolic cleansing of the organization. Although that sounds like a big number, the fact of the matter is that if your boss asks you to jump in a lake for charity, you're probably going to say yes, so don't be surprised if Jackson hits his 150-person goal. Thus, Jackson will be jumping into the lake in June and will benefit his charity.

It may have taken awhile or Jackson to confirm his plans to make the jump but for good reason.

If that miracle cleanse somehow works and fixes the Browns, then we should all probably think about jumping in.
