Browns get bandwagon warning after Snoop Dogg visit

18


The Browns’ bandwagon was so empty for years that now coach Hue Jackson is warning his players about it getting too crowded — even if it includes Snoop Dogg.

Welcome to the world of winning two games.

The rapper showed up at the Browns’ practice in Cleveland on Wednesday, and while Jackson appreciated the drop-in, he cautioned his team about basking in the hype that has come with being 2-2-1 through five games.

“I thought that was great,” Jackson, who has apparently known Snoop Dogg for years, told Cleveland.com. “At the same time, there are going to be a lot of people that want to come be on this wagon when the wagon gets rolling, and we’re going to circle the wagon. I know that because I didn’t see any of these people the last two years.

“I’m still the same guy. I still knew all of these people prior to this year. We’re not going to get caught up in any of that. Our players won’t, and that’s my message to them. We are going to work, and we’re going to continue to get better and see where we are.”

Snoop Dogg was nowhere to be seen when the Browns went 0-16 last year or 1-15 the year before that, but these are different times in Cleveland with rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield providing some hope. A noted Steelers fan, Snoop Dogg toured the Browns’ facility and met with players after practice.

“The real Dogg had to come see the Dawg Pound and make it official,” Snoop Dogg said on the team’s “Cleveland Browns Daily” show.

“I like a lot of players y’all got on your team. I like what y’all doing. [Jarvis] Landry, Mayfield, [Myles] Garrett, [Jabrill] Peppers. It’s a bunch of guys I like how they get down.”
