Hue Jackson to jump into Lake Erie on June 1 to fulfill promise

Last January, the Browns vowed to jump in Lake Erie if the team went 1-15 again after doing so in 2016.

Jackson had a stent placed in his heart in 2014, and his doctors did not allow him to jump into the frigid water immediately after the 2017 season ended, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The best part is that the coach will donate $100 to the Hue Jackson Foundation for every Browns employee joins him in the jump. "You can write it, Hue Jackson said it, if you like". "I don't like to do it for the reason I am having to do it, but I have to make do on my word".

The twist here is that Jackson won't be making the jump alone.

Jackson will jump into the lake on June 1st.


"Fortunately, I'm not going alone", Jackson said.

And, while the Browns' future seems brighter now thanks to offseason acquisitions like Tyrod Taylor, Jarvis Landry and the drafting of Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, the only way for Jackson to truly rid himself of past failures is to take the plunge.

Established in 2017 alongside his wife, Michelle, Jackson's foundation aims to battle human trafficking across Northeast Ohio. 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.

Jackson also noted he is "hoping to cleanse ourselves of all the losing from the past two seasons" with the jump.
