Cleveland Browns Make A Sick Boy’s Dreams Come True By Signing Him To Special Contract [VIDEO]

It’s not a secret; the Cleveland Browns are one of the most dysfunctional organizations in all of pro sports, but that doesn’t mean they can’t make a little boy’s dreams come true.

9-year-old Dylan Sutcliffe was born with Ataxia telangiectasia, “a primary immunodeficiency disease that affects a number of different organs in the body. A rare, recessive genetic disorder that affects between one out of every 40,000-100,000 children worldwide, A-T is a progressive ailment that is characterized by neurological problems, particularly abnormalities of balance, recurrent sinus and respiratory infections and dilated blood vessels in the eyes and on the surface of the skin.”

A-T has made Dylan’s life extremely difficult — his younger brother Sean was also born with the disease — and when the Lyndhurst, Ohio-native told the Make-A-Wish Foundation that his dream was to one day play for Cleveland, the Browns swooped in to make his dreams come true.

The organization invited Dylan and his family to a team facility in Berea, where he was signed to a special 1-day contract.


Dylan spent the day hanging with some of the Browns players, attending OTA’s and even received his very own locker, complete with “#7 Sutcliffe” gear.

What’s that? No, I’m not crying. My desk is just really dusty.

And I’ve got allergies.
