One year ago, the Browns were in the same place they are today - not a good one.
And one year ago, head coach Hue Jackson made a vow to jump in Lake Erie if the team once again went 1-15.
“I made a statement and I have to back it up.”
Hue Jackson confirms he will make good on his promise to jump in Lake Erie.

"I made a statement and I have to back it up," he said on Wednesday.
Sure, he could technically get out of it if the Browns go for a perfect season and lose again on Sunday. But he said he'll keep his word.
Jackson said it'll go down at his convenience, and hopefully with an audience. He wants to make the occasion a benefit for his foundation, which is building a residence in Cleveland to provide housing for victims of human trafficking. It's expected to open in the spring.
So when is he jumping in? No time soon with this weather.
