Once the Browns got word of the request, they decided to have a customized jersey made and delivered to Entsminger’s family:

Browns public relations director Zak Gilbert told ESPN.com that as soon as the Browns learned of Scott E. Entsminger’s death they contacted his widow, Pat, to express their condolences.

“She told us that Scott’s favorite player was Lou Groza, so we had a 76 jersey customized with Scott’s last name,” Gilbert said.

A representative from the Browns’ front office will personally deliver it to Pat Entsminger at her husband’s memorial service Tuesday afternoon.

Nice gesture by the Browns organization. Now if they can somehow find a way to win a few more games this season that would be the ultimate icing on the cake, especially considering that the Browns have not won a playoff game in almost 20 years. Talk about a suffering fan base.
