The Cleveland Browns are embracing their newfound 'swagger' brought on them by Johnny Manziel. The Brown's VP of Marketing said the team will unveil a live bulldog to represent the squad this season.
The Browns will apparently use a real dog as their mascot this season. His name: "Swagger." http://t.co/eY9tah8FCe pic.twitter.com/ZsTuEMP1vu— FOX Sports NFL (@NFLonFOX) July 14, 2014
They'll be using a live bullmastiff (similar to the one pictured above) as a mascot in 2014.
The name is suitable for Cleveland's "Dawg Pound," the fanbase behind the end zone at the Brown's FirstEnergy Stadium. Chad Johnson knows them well.
With a name like Swagger, it seems like the perfect match for Manziel, the offseason king of swagger. Let's see how that translates onto the NFL field.
Cleveland's decision to use a live mascot adds it to the ranks of teams like the Seattle Seahawks, Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos, all of whom have actual animals representing their squads.
I'd take a live Bengal tiger over all of them.
