When asked if Browns incentivized losing, Hue Jackson says he “could not win” in that situation

Article Summary:

After Brian Flores alleged in a lawsuit that the Dolphins offered him $100,000 per loss during the 2019 season, former Browns head coach Hue Jackson suggested something similar happened while he was going 1-31 during his first two seasons on the job. The Browns issued a statement denying that they incentivized anyone to deliberately lose games.

During an appearance on ESPN on Wednesday, Jackson said he was “Put in a situation where I could not win” and that the team had a plan that “Did not talk about winning and losing until Year 3 and 4” but did not say he was directly incentivized to lose games when Elle Duncan asked him about that aspect of his comments. That’s a different allegation than paying employees to lose games and Jackson’s clarification takes much of the sting out of his earlier comments.
