The showdown all of Northeast Ohio has waited for is finally near.
Jackson took over as the team's head coach in 2016 and did not find his first win until the 15 game of the season, going 1-15 overall.
The Browns head coach will jump into Lake Erie on June 1, fulfilling a promise he made following his first season in Cleveland. They went 0-16. And so now he's going to jump in a lake. "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".
It is a more than worthy cause that I've written about before (see the first link in this article if you've missed it), addressing a problem that is vastly underrecognized in part because it's something too terrible for the average person to want to acknowledge is actually going on right now. I think his players will get a kick out of it as will the fans in Cleveland. "That is the type of person I am, so that is what we have to do".

Pompeo - US to lift sanctions if North Korea dismantles nuclear weapons programme
But he has done nothing that would indicate he plans to give up his nuclear weapons or long-range missiles. Seoul has also proposed holding a high-level dialogue with North Korea this week.
Jackson won't be alone.
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. Sure, the river that feeds into Lake Erie once caught fire, but GM John Dorsey is doing his best to ensure the same doesn't happen to the franchise.
Jackson had a stent put in his heart in a 2014 procedure.
Well, the Browns made history as the second National Football League team to go 0-16 and now it's time for Jackson to pay up.
