LeBron James may have sealed an enormous deal to join the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA off-season, but that doesn't mean the Ohio native is pro-Cleveland on everything.

Since the Dallas Cowboys' impressive 5-1 start to the NFL season, the Cavaliers returning home town hero has been donning his Cowboys merchandise.

- Big week for Cleveland Browns

James is a well known Cowboys fan which be to a lot of peoples surprise since he is now returning to his home town team for a second run with the wine and gold.

LeBron has been enjoying the Cowboys season so far, particularly their win over Super Bowl Champions the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

However, there is one NFL player who hopes to sway LeBron from the lofty heights of the Cowboys.

Starting Quarterback for the Cleveland Browns Brian Hoyer has spoken out and claimed that he is hoping to change the NBA stars allegiance.

Ahead of a very impactful day in the NFL on Sunday, LeBron tweeted: "Home sweet Home!!! Nothing better than it. Now let's go @Browns!! Best of luck today. @dallascowboys let's go as well."

Clearly showing some support for his home-town team but not diverting from his avid Cowboy fandom as he posted a picture on his Instagram page of himself in Cowboys gear.

A reason to abandon the Browns?

Despite being an Ohio native, LeBron supports a team that is four states away from his home in Akron.

Both he and Hoyer - another Cleveland native were in elementary school when the Browns moved to Baltimore and became the Ravens in 1995.

Four years later in the expansion franchise the Browns returned but by that time it appears to have been too late.

Rather than jump ship to fellow Ohio franchise the Cincinnati Bengals, LeBron went to Dallas but is it time to change back?

Well Hoyer certainly thinks so and after leading the Browns to a 3-2 start this season, he has to feel confident about having a season without double-digit losses for the first time in six years.

The Browns still face matches against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers who have managed one win so far between all three teams.

Hopes have been high in Cleveland since they drafted rookie Quarterback Johnny Manziel in this years draft, and although Manziel has been Hoyer's backup all season, the Browns fans faith is seemingly being rewarded.
