When the Cleveland Browns traded away a draft pick to take Josh Gordon in the supplemental draft some people thought they gave up too much. Now that those fans have seen the way Gordon performs on the football field, they are thrilled Cleveland gave away their second round pick in the 2012 draft. Gordon is one big reason why Browns rookie quarterback Weeden has done so well. Josh Gordon gives Weeden a moving target that makes great catches and has the ability to adjust his routes to accommodate most of Weeden’s throws if they are catch-able.
Some were worried with the time off Gordon took from football that it would take him to long to get ready to play in the NFL, I think we can put those unfounded worries to bed too. Gordon is the real deal and he is one guy that gives the Cleveland Browns the deep threat they have been in search of for more than a decade. Gordon is just coming into his own and he continues to improve for the Browns. This kid is going to be something that gives the Browns opponents something to worry about, in the past other teams knew the Browns lacked the deep threat that could punish a team secondary. Those days are over people and it thanks to one Josh Gordon.
At 6’3″ and 225 lbs Gordon is a sizable guy that can deal with the bumps of just about any D.B. in the National Football League. Gordon has 34 receptions in the 12 games he has played in for 646 yards and 5 touchdowns…..
