Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon finds out if he made it to the Pro Bowl on Friday night and he already knows that the Cleveland writers have unanimously named him the Browns’ player of the year for 2013, but he’s setting his sights higher for the 2014 season.
Gordon’s goal for next year are to be known as “hands down just be outright the best wide receiver in the NFL.” It’s a lofty goal, but it may not be out of reach for Gordon after watching him scorch defenses this season. Gordon has 80 catches, nine touchdowns and he leads the league with 1,564 receiving yards despite missing the first two games of the season while serving a suspension.
In addition to setting his goal, Gordon has identified the part of his game that needs to improve in order for him to reach it.
“You can never have too much consistency,” Gordon said, via Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. “I don’t think I have enough of it. I’m glad where I’m at right now, but I think I could always do a lot better.”
Calvin Johnson has been the standard bearer for receivers for a while now and there’s no sign that he’ll be going away any time soon. Should Gordon be able to improve on this year’s production, though, he’ll be a contender for the title of heir to the throne at the very least.
