The new faces just keep rolling into Cleveland.
With the Cleveland Browns drafting Johnny Manziel in the 2014 NFL Draft and LeBron James recently announcing that he would be returning home, you would think Ohio would have enough swagger coming to their state, but the Browns thought they could use a little more to improve the Dawg Pound.
The team will trot out a live mascot this season — a bullmastiff named “Swagger” — who will be roaming the sidelines and leading the players out onto the field at FirstEnergy Stadium this fall.
Kevin Griffin, the Browns’ vice president of fan experience and marketing, made the announcement on 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland, ESPN.com reports.
The Browns now join the Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks and Baltimore Ravens as teams around the league who use live mascots.
