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.
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. Well, we all know how that turned out.
Jackson will be joined with club employees when he does the stunt on June 1, and pledged to donate $100 for every employee that jumps in the lake with him to the Hue Jackson Foundation, which fights human trafficking.
It may have taken awhile or Jackson to confirm his plans to make the jump but for good reason.
Before diving into the 2018 National Football League season, Hue Jackson will plunge into Lake Erie.
It's not exactly a shock that he would have put it off until the weather warms up, but hey, who could really blame him?
Despite going 1-31 in his two seasons, Jackson kept his job and now he's hoping his splashdown can symbolize a new beginning for the Browns.
The team has worked heavily this offseason to do the practical work behind that idealistic promise, making dramatic moves both in free agency and the draft, including a number of trades and a complete clean sweep of their quarterback room, which now consists of Tyrod Taylor, Baker Mayfield, and Drew Stanton.
You may not think jumping into a lake during the summer is a big deal, but Lake Erie is pretty gross.
