Browns Re-Sign WR Josh Gordon

The Browns announced that they have officially re-signed exclusive rights free agent Josh Gordon. In addition to the star wide receiver, the Browns have also formally re-upped wide receiver Matt Hazel, offensive lineman Austin Reiter, and fullback Danny Vitale. All four players are set to take part in the team’s offseason program, which started on Monday morning. 

Gordon should have been an unrestricted free agent by now, but multiple suspensions caused his contract to toll. As a result, Gordon did not have any options this offseason and the Browns had full control over his rights.

Gordon, 26, appeared in five games for Cleveland in 2017. In that time, he posted 18 receptions for 335 yards and one touchdown. This year, he’ll play alongside Corey Coleman and the newly-acquired Jarvis Landry. If Gordon is able to stay on track, he could thrive as a deep threat in the Browns’ revamped offense.

Gordon first joined the Browns as a second-round pick in the 2012 supplemental draft. All in all, he has appeared in 40 games and recorded 179 receptions for 3,089 yards and 15 touchdowns. In 2013, he led the league with 1,646 receiving yards.

      For a no-brainer. Shame, the kid has a ton of talent and no willpower to stay clean and cash in $$$.

        Yes, it is a shame how he’s wasted that talent. If he does stay clean, do you think there’s any chance he re-signs with the Browns?

      Hardly a no brainer….can’t trust him because he wants to party and smoke the wacky tobacco…..he’ll be suspended by week 3

    I guess all the Browns have to do now to put the finishing touches on their up and coming dynasty is to sign Trent Richardson.

      This is about as smart as anything Sufferfortribe says…..and that’s not a lot
