The Cleveland Browns are the latest NFL team accused of offering bonuses to their coach to lose games.

This follows the accusations made by former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores yesterday that made headlines for his claim that he was offered $100,000 bonuses to deliberately lose games.

The latest accusation was made by former Browns head coach Hue Jackson and his associate, who said the team offered such a bonus during the 2016 and 2017 seasons. During the period, the Browns were able to secure star players Myles Garrett and Baker Mayfield due to their poor run.

In a statement on Wednesday, a Browns spokesperson denied the claim, saying that they were “completely fabricated.”

“Any accusation that any member of our organization was incentivized to deliberately lose games is categorically false,” the spokesperson added.

Meanwhile, Kimberly Diemert, head of Jackson’s charitable foundation, took to Twitter on Tuesday to praise Flores, adding: “They did this (Browns). Paid Brown, DePodesta, and Berry bonus $ along with @huejack10 to TANK for 2016 and 2017. @espn.”

Jackson, meanwhile, further elaborated his claim in a response to a tweet on Twitter.

“Well Jimmy Haslam was happy while we kept losing,” he wrote in answer to a tweet by @VoiceOfTheStar.
