According to numerous reports including NFL Spin Zone’s own Joe Soriano, Josh Gordon and the Cleveland Browns are looking at a possible year-long suspension for 2014. According to Soriano, “Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon will be suspended for the 2014 season and could miss a chunk of the 2015 season after a DWI arrest, as he was already set to be suspended for the 2014 season after multiple marijuana-related incidents. This, of course, came after he was suspended for a few games last season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.”
Recent reports also mention numerous players ranging from former teammate D’Qwell Jackson to Donald Driver have reached out to Gordon to try and help the young receiver.
Regardless of your opinion on the whole situation, it is looking like Gordon will not play a single down for the Cleveland Browns this season, prompting the Browns to look for other receivers to take his place. Because Miles Austin, Nate Burleson, Andrew Hawkins and Jordan Cameron can’t do all of the work themselves, I have put together a list of potential players who the Browns could sign from Free Agency in order to replace Gordon in the offense. Now, don’t quote me on saying that the Browns will give serious consideration into signing these players, because lord knows most of these guys are not NFL-ready quite yet. These are players that were once good players, but caught a couple of bad breaks in the past year. Just like the Browns, these guys need a second chance, too.
