The Cleveland Browns would most certainly prefer to forget about the Hue Jackson era.
But, Jackson seems to have his own agenda in not forgetting about his tenure with the Browns.
Over the past year, Jackson has stated many claims about what happened during his 3-36-1 record as the Browns head coach.
But, Jackson dropped quite a hint on social media on a day when Brian Flores accused Dolphins owner Stephen Ross of paying him to tank games.
In Flores’ filed lawsuit, he claims Ross told him he would pay him $100,000 for each game he lost in 2019 in order to “tank” the season for a better draft position.
A fan on Twitter posted this response after the news of Brian Flores and the accusations against Ross.

“Jimmy Haslam wasn’t offering 100k per loss or Hue would be on the Forbes list” the fan said.
Jackson responded to the tweet by saying, “Trust me it was a good number.”
Trust me it was a good number!

Last year, Jackson also claimed that the Browns offered him a contract extension after going 1-23 as the Browns coach.
“I wanted to go public with it, but the Browns didn’t.”
According to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, Jackson claims he was lied to by the team and ownership.
“There’s no doubt I was lied to by ownership and leadership of the team,’’ Jackson said
The Browns fired Jackson after going 2-5-1 to start the 2018 season.
He finished with a 11-44-1 record as an NFL head coach
He was recently hired as the head coach at Grambling State.
