New Browns DB Damarious Randall makes big promise if Cavs upset Warriors

Damarious Randall has not exactly endeared himself to Cleveland Browns fans this offseason.

Randall, a safety who was traded to the Browns from the Green Bay Packers in March, has been openly rooting for the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Playoffs. And now that Golden State and the Cleveland Cavaliers are set to meet in the NBA Finals for the fourth year in a row, Randall won’t switch allegiances.

But if Cleveland somehow pulls off the upset, Randall has a way to make things up to the fans.


As of early Tuesday afternoon, the tweet above had more than 117,000 retweets. That’s a lot of jerseys.

And a lot of money.

Randall is still on his original rookie deal he signed after being selected No. 30 overall by Green Bay in the 2015 draft. He’s set to make $1.51 million in 2018 and has a fifth-year option for 2019 at just over $9 million.

He better hope the Browns exercise that option. An NFL jersey costs around 100 bucks. If he meant an NBA jersey, the official Nike ones cost $110. As those retweets increase, well, we’ll let you do the math on how much Randall would be on the hook for.

Randall says he’ll make good on the promise, too. He said this in response to a fan who said there would be “zero chance he delivers.”


But that’s only if LeBron James and the Cavs generate one of the biggest upsets in NBA history.
