Browns deny Hue Jackson or anyone else was incentivized to deliberately lose games

Article Summary:

The Browns are denying claims that former head coach Hue Jackson and others were urged to lose games on purpose in an attempt to get better draft picks.

In response to claims from Jackson and the head of his foundation that Browns owner Jimmy Haslam was willing to pay extra for losses, the Browns released a statement saying it’s false.

Regardless of whether owners blatantly offered to pay coaches to lose, the NFL has a real problem when there’s a perception that losing is a good thing. The league ought to change the draft rules, so that teams are no longer incentivized to lose.
