Jersey promise could leave Browns player in red if Cavs win

Damarious Randall opens up about viral tweet

When Randall recently wrote on Twitter, "If the Cleveland Cavaliers win the 2018 National Basketball Association finals I'll buy everyone who retweet's this a jersey", he had no clue the tweet would become a record-breaker.

Former Green Bay Packers cornerback and current Cleveland Browns safety Damarious Randall has gotten in trouble because of his mouth a couple of times. If the Cavs win the championship, Randall says he'll buy a jersey for anyone who retweeted his message.

Randall said he was joking about the jersey, although on Twitter he also tweeted "100 percent chance" about honoring the commitment.

Another fan said that there's no way Randall would deliver on this promise, which Randall did take issue with.

Randall said Wednesday he never imagined that an innocent Twitter posting about the NBA Finals would blow up into a national story - and maybe something he lives to regret.

The tweet, as of this writing, is already up to 35,000 retweets.

"That just kind of goes to show that this Cleveland fan base is great". You'd better believe I'm one of them, too.

"They will love me when they see me play Free Safety", Randall tweeted Sunday, adding three emojis symbolizing faces with tears of joy. With jerseys going for roughly $100, that puts the 25-year old defensive back on the hook for over $32 million in gear.

That tweet had 122,000 retweets as of Tuesday afternoon, so Randall would be in deep trouble money-wise if the Cavaliers pull off an improbable upset.

"I didn't think people [would] actually view that as a serious tweet from me", Randall said.
