But at this point, if the Cavaliers manage to win the National Basketball Association championship, the new Browns safety will be paying quite the pretty penny after promising everyone who retweeted one of his tweets a jersey if the Cavaliers are victorious over the Golden State Warriors.

"If the Cleveland Cavaliers win the 2018 National Basketball Association finals I'll buy everyone who retweet's this a jersey".

Randall said he was joking about the jersey, although on Twitter he also tweeted "100 percent chance" about honoring the commitment.

As of this posting, Randall now owes 163,000 people a jersey if the Cavaliers win the NBA Finals.

"Honestly, I didn't think it was going to get over 100 [retweets], to be honest", said Randall, who added that would do "something" for fans regardless of the NBA Finals result.

Weinman, 20, of Philadelphia, was charged with assaulting officers by kicking and spitting on them during the encounter. The officers involved were identified as Class II patrolmen Thomas Cannon, John Hillman, and Robert Jordan.

The number presently sits at just under 850,000 and only figures to go up from here.

That would mean Randall's promise would cost him at minimum $22.8 million to upwards of $76 million, unless he can get a deal buying in bulk. I think he has a love and respect for Steph Curry, obviously.

To the displeasure of the 831,404 tweeters who mashed the RT button (as of 5:10 p.m. ET on Wednesday), Randall will not be following through on his promise. However, he did note that LeBron James should be this season's MVP. But viral the message has gone, and now, it is one of the top 20 most retweeted posts in the 12-year history of Twitter. "I said that to our football team". "I try to take our team through those lessons because I think that it is important".

As a result, Randall will probably not be attending Games 3 and 4 in Cleveland.

Randall's vow had been retweeted more than 500,000 times.
