The Browns took a chance on receiver Josh Gordon in the supplemental draft. While we’re still 20 days away from finding out what he can really do in a real game, he’s looking in practice like a guy who has a chance to be pretty good.
Steve Doerschuk of the Canton Repository reports that Gordon has looked “brilliant” the last two days in practice.
Doerschuk points out that the superlative team reflect the Browns’ bell curve at the position.
“I don’t know if it was noticeable to you guys watching, but the last couple of days, he’s practicing faster,” coach Pat Shurmur said after practice on Monday regarding Gordon. “He’s catching the ball and running with it instead of catching and stopping.
“He’s learning how to do it better in practice. If we see it here, then it will translate to the game.”
That will serve only to help the Browns, who are waiting for someone/anyone to step up and be a starting-caliber wideout across from Greg Little.
