Jersey promise could leave Browns player in red if Cavs win

Browns safety Damarious Randall caught the attention of a lot of people when he promised to buy jerseys if the Cavs win the Finals Jersey promise could leave Browns player in red if Cavs win

The viral post by the Cleveland Browns corner offering a free jersey for every retweet, should the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, has more than 893,000 retweets as of publication.

If LeBron James goes insane and all the Warriors get sick and the Cavaliers somehow manage to win this thing, Randall still has an out: He never specified what kind of jersey he'd buy.

With 695,000 retweets and counting, Randall doubled down on his promise Tuesday night after a fan accused him of bluffing.

While other Twitter users have cast doubt on whether the newly acquired defensive back will follow through, he tweeted back at one skeptic on Monday with the promise he would "100 percent" keep his promise.

"I mean, I definitely didn't think the Cleveland fan base would go this insane about it".

"I definitely didn't think the Cleveland fan base would go this insane about it", Randall said. At $99.99 each for jerseys, that would mean Randall could be spending $77.7 million.

However, Randall responded, saying there was "100% chance". "Just to know how passionate this fan base is, it is really encouraging".

If the number of retweets continue to increase substantially and Randall chooses something else instead for those people, I doubt there would be much complaining.

As many have already pointed out on his post, Randall never clarified what jersey he would buy all re-tweeters or how they would receive the jersey.

Randall, who grew up in Pensacola, Florida, did tweet that LeBron James deserved the MVP award, and that he would have pulled for the Cavs if Houston had won the Western Conference finals.

"I'm not paying one penny", Jackson said.

"I thought it was tremendous".

The NBA Finals tip off this Thursday with Game 1 at Golden State, with the Warriors listed as 12-point favourites to earn the victory in the first game of the series.
