Browns to have bullmastiff mascot

The Cleveland Browns plan to live up to the reputation of the Dawg Pound this season.

They plan to have a bullmastiff as a mascot this season at home gamess at FirstEnergy Stadium.

The Browns plan to have a bullmastiff named "Swagger" lead the players onto the field, according to Browns vice president of fan experience and marketing Kevin Griffin.

The only other teams that have live mascots are the Seattle Seahawks (Taima the hawk), the Denver Broncos (a white Arabian horse named Thunder II) and the Baltimore Ravens (two ravens named Rise and Conquer).
