Jackson will make the jump for the symbolic cleansing of the franchise and for charity.
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? They promptly went 0-16, but Jackson is keeping his word and doing some good with it, according to the team's official website. If you ask me, that's cheating.
And, while the Browns' future seems brighter now thanks to offseason acquisitions like Tyrod Taylor, Jarvis Landry and the drafting of Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, the only way for Jackson to truly rid himself of past failures is to take the plunge.
