Cleveland Browns head coach Hue Jackson says he will make good on his promise to jump into Lake Erie after claiming he would make the swim if the team went 1-15 again.

And here we are. 

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

Jackson technically could avoid the commitment if the Browns lose Sunday in Pittsburgh to finish 0-16, but Jackson said he would keep his word.

Who's going to jump in the lake with me?

"I got to," he said. "How? You just jump in. When? That's going to be 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."

"At my convenience" sounds a little like, "I'll do it in July."
