Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson is keeping his word with his team. During Wednesday’s news conference, he sais, “Who’s going to jump in the lake with me?”

Last season, Jackson made a bet that if the Browns went 1-15 again, he would go into Lake Erie. However, the problem is that the Browns are winless — and will likely become the second team in NFL history, who goes winless on the season, joining the 2008 Detroit Lions.

“I made that statement,” Jackson said. “I got to back it up.”

The Browns very likely could lose to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. They have regressed from last season, which is a good reason why they will not have a win this season.

“I got to,” Jackson said. “How? You just jump in. When? That’s going to by at my convenience and hopefully I can get a lot of people to come out. It’d be something that we’re going to make special.

“I don’t like it. Don’t like to do it for the reason why I’m having to do it, but I have to make do on my word. I just think that’s what you do.”

Jackson said when he jumps into Lake Erie — let’s hope that it is not in the Winter months — will be a fundraiser, as well. He said the event will benefit his, Hue Jackson Foundation, that supports and combats human trafficking in Cleveland.

Jackson even admitted that he’s not a good swimmer.

“I never said I could swim,” he said. “There will be some people down there to rescue me pretty quickly. So we’ll make it fun. It’s for the right reason. Again, I don’t take light to things that I say that I put out there. I like to back them up. I haven’t been able to.”
