Brian Hoyer trying to make LeBron James a Cleveland Browns fan
Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer has invited LeBron James to jump on the team's bandwagon now that The King is back in town.
The Browns are 3-2 and riding high after defeating the rival Pittsburgh Steelers for just the fifth time this millennium, but James is remaining loyal to the Dallas Cowboys, who are 5-1 with a win over the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.
When someone say "Man your Cowboys stink!!" I say "Yeah I know we do sitting at 5-1. Hahaha" #WeDemBoyz #StriveForGreatness
Hoyer told The Associated Press that he understood why James did not follow his local team, but is optimistic he can win him over.
"He's a year older than me, the Browns left when he was a kid, too," said Hoyer, referring to the Browns' move to Baltimore in 1995. "You have to cheer for someone."
"Hopefully," Hoyer said with a smile, "we can bring him around to it."
