The struggling Cleveland Browns (6-9) wished upon a star this holiday season, as they signed social media sensation-turned-professional boxer to a contract a day before Christmas Eve.

No, the social media giant will not be placing his hand in the dirt for the last place team in the AFC North this season. However, the Browns hope to receive a nudge in their marketing and promotions department from the 20 million YouTube subscribers and 21.5 million followers on Instagram from the Cleveland, Ohio native.

"Great announcement as we want to welcome the newest member of the Cleveland Browns Jake Paul," mentioned the Browns Executive Vice President JW Johnson, at an NFL press conference held Dec. 23. Johnson went on to say, "We are actually here today to offer you a position with our social media team to be the Junior Associate Content Assistant."

"I'm super excited this is a dream come true, "said Paul during a FaceTime conversation with Johnson.

Cleveland's EVP responded, "We’re fired up. [We] can’t wait to get you here today and get you to sign that contract, and excited to have you be a part of the team, man."

Paul wasted no time getting his NFL career started as he made his debut as the Browns Junior Associate Content Assistant the following day.

Cleveland hosted the New Orleans Saints in a 17-10 loss at First Energy Stadium Saturday and remain in last place of the AFC North. The Browns finish their season on the road against the Washington Commanders, followed by a match up with the Pittsburgh Steelers Jan. 8.

Paul is 6-0 as professional boxer, after he made his debut against Ali Eson Gib, January 30, 2020. The Ohio native resides and is currently training in Dorado, Puerto Rico.
