(CBS) The Cleveland Browns plan to honor a lifelong fan who took one last parting shot at the organization.

Scott E. Entsminger, an Ohio resident who passed away at the age of 55, took a jab at his beloved Browns in his obituary.

“He respectfully requests six Cleveland Browns pallbearers so the Browns can let him down one last time,” the obituary read.

The Browns got wind of Entsminger’s joke and contacted his widow, who informed the team Entsminger’s favorite player was Hall of Famer Lou Groza, who wore No. 76. The team will now present his family with a No. 76 jersey with “Entsminger” inscribed on the back at the funeral Tuesday.
