Daily Dawg Tags: Hue Jackson to jump into Lake Erie for charity
By Dan Justik
The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know. Today’s stories look at Hue Jackson’s plan to jump into Lake Erie and more.
After saying he would jump into Lake Erie if the Browns finished the 2017 season worse than they did in 2016, Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson has a date setup to follow through on that promise.
Following the Browns 1-15 season, Jackson had said that he would jump in the lake if they finished the 2017 season with the same record. But they managed to somehow finish with a worse record, and Jackson did not forget what he promised to do.
There were complaints from fans that Jackson jumping into the lake in June is not a punishment compared to jumping into the lake in January. But because of a heart condition, doctors would not let Jackson jump into the freezing lake. Thus, Jackson will be jumping into the lake in June and will benefit his charity.
That story and more can be found in today’s edition of Daily Dawg Tags.
