Browns to get live mascot this season

The good news just keep on rollin' in for Cleveland sports fans. Just days after acquiring the best basketball player on the planet when LeBron James agreed to return to the Cavs, news has immerged that the Browns are set to have a new live mascot this upcoming season.

On Sunday, Browns vice president of fan experience and marketing Kevin Griffin told 92.3 The Fan Cleveland that the team would be getting a live bullmastiff (similar to the one pictured above) as a mascot in 2014. So sit down, Chomps!

The Browns' bullmastiff will be named Swagger and he will lead the team out of the tunnel and onto the field on gameday.

Bullmastiffs typically weight 110-130 pounds when they're full grown. That's a really big dog. Perhaps the Browns should have their kicker ride that thing out onto the field the way Florida State does with Osceola and his horse Renegade.

It would also be pretty cool if the Browns trained Swagger to run out onto the field and retrieve the tee after kickoffs.

Surely the Dawg Pound in Cleveland has got to be happy with the new addition. The Browns will join the Seahawks, Broncos and Ravens as the few NFL teams with live mascots.

Looks like Browns mascot Chomps will be getting a new pal.

DeAngelo Williams' nice gesture for a marine

Great move here by Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams, as he offered up his business-class seat on a flight to Marine on Monday. It was a very thoughtful act of kindness to recognize and thank one of the many men and women who sacrifice so much to make our country such a wonderful place with their military service.

Aaron Hernandez featured in Florida calendar

These Gators calendars are killer, man.

Whoops. According to the Associated Press, the University of Florida said Tuesday that officials approved the publication months before he was charged with murder. Still, somebody's gotta come through and scrap the idea of just keeping "Mr. July" as a dude who allegedly murders at will.

But if Hernandez really killed all of those guys, don't you think the Patriots would have at least one of the murders on video?
