Randall did not specify what kind of jersey he would buy if the Cavaliers win, but assuming a standard Browns jersey that retails for $99.99, delivering on his promise would cost him well into eight figures.
"I definitely didn't think it would go as viral as it did".

A native of Pensacola, Fla., Randall explained he became a fan of Stephen Curry because of his passion and the injuries he overcame on his way to stardom with the Warriors. "Just to know how passionate this fan base is, it is really encouraging". He probably wasn't expecting 120,000 retweets (and rising rapidly). Hopefully for Cleveland fans' sake, the jersey is one they like.
That tweet has since gone on to become the most retweeted tweet by any National Football League player in history, now with more than 800,000 retweets and counting.
Even with a wholesale discount, this many jerseys would rack up quite a bill. But the 2015 first-round pick instead doubled down when a fan suggested there was no way he'd honor his promise if the Cavs pulled off the upset.
"I'm glad the Cavs made it to the finals so I can watch Curry light that [expletive] up Game 3 & 4", he wrote.
"I don't think any Cleveland fans would sell me any tickets anymore", Randall said.
