Looking to improve on the football field this season, the Cleveland Browns just made a HUGE signing, and it’s guaranteed to make you feel great!

Dylan Sutcliffe, a 9-year-old from Ohio, officially signed his contract with the Browns this morning, and it’s pretty much the cutest thing we’ve seen all day!

Sutcliffe, who was diagnosed with an immunodeficiency disease called ataxia telangiectasia (A-T), joined the Browns for the day thanks to the wonderful work of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Browns general manager Ray Farmer was very optimistic the stud athlete could help the team:

“We’re excited to add another quality player to our roster as we prepare for the 2015 season. When we first connected with Dylan, it was clear he was a competitor who had all of the right attributes to be a contributor to our team.”

And Browns’ head coach Mike Pettine understands he needs Sutcliffe’s help to improve a Cleveland team facing a tough division this year:

“Dylan is definitely a young man who has all of the ├óΓé¼╦£Play Like a Brown’ traits, particularly through his passion, toughness and relentlessness. We look forward to seeing him bring that energy to practice this afternoon.”

Right now, Sutcliffe is going through practice with the team after watching film with the coaching staff, and he’s already made an impact in the locker room.

Browns’ cornerback Joe Haden tweeted:

Professional football should be a piece of cake for the tough little man, who’s already been bravely battling A-T for most of his life.

Congrats, Dylan! We can’t wait to see you out on the field helping your favorite football team!
