The Cleveland Browns did not just find out about the situation with Josh Gordon, they were aware of the situation yesterday during the draft, but that did not stop them from passing on a few receivers in the draft. They had the chance to take the best wide receiver in the draft, Sammy Watkins, but they decided to go in another direction and traded away the pick.
Watkins could have been a huge help for the team on offense and could give their quarterback someone to throw to. Now the offense needs more help without any threats to throw the ball out to.
The draft still has a ton of talent in the draft and the Browns can scoop up another receiver in order to give the team some help. Marqise Lee could be an option for the Browns when they get up to select, but other teams are aware of their need now and might move up in front of them in order to take him.
