Like many teams, the Browns will have a mascot.  Unlike many teams, Cleveland’s mascot won’t take off his suit when it’s time to go home.

Per Chris Fillar of 92.3 The Fan in Cleveland, Browns V.P. of marketing Kevin Griffin said that the Browns will use a live bulldog as the team mascot this season.  His name will be “Swagger.”

Given the owner’s propensity for replacing key employees, it’s unknown whether Swagger will simply be fired if he doesn’t fulfill his duties to the satisfaction of management — or whether Swagger will be taking a one-way ride to Euthanasiaville.

No pressure, Swagger.  No pressure at all.
