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.
