Josh Gordon: I don’t think I’ve hit my pinnacle yet

Browns wide receiver Nate Burleson said this week that he’d like to serve as a mentor to Josh Gordon in hopes of making sure Gordon avoids the kind of off-field issues that led to a two-game suspension last year and the resulting potential for a year-long suspension if he should violate the league’s drug policy again.

That’s in the best interest of everyone associated with the Browns. Gordon had 87 catches for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games last season, the kind of numbers reserved for the top receivers in the league. It was just Gordon’s second season in the league and he thinks that there are even bigger things to come.

“I don’t think I really reached my pinnacle yet. I think this is the tip of the iceberg, really. I think I can go a lot higher, a lot further than that,” Gordon said in an interview with the team’s website.

Given that Gordon put up those numbers with subpar quarterback play throughout the season, it’s hard to argue with his opinion. If the Browns can find an answer at quarterback and revive their running game, Gordon’s impact should be even bigger.

    TRANSLATION: Burleson is going to teach Gordon how to carelessly drive with no hands while texting and eating pizza

    This guy is a stud, catches anything and everything thrown his way.

    Well at least we can rest easy that Gordon isn’t consuming anything illegal again because he hasn’t shut his mouth once the entire off-season.

    You have been in the league 2 years and you haven’t won the division yet. Obviously you haven’t reached your pinnacle yet dude.

    The browns will not be a joke this year.

    He’s played two seasons right? If he keeps this up he’ll be right up there with Rex Ryan winning multiple Super Bowls and Chris Johnson rushing for 3,000 yards.

    This year, Josh Gordon will prove that he is the best receiver in the NFL….period.

    The axiom “tip of the iceberg” is typically used in reference to disasters that are quickly expected to get worse. Although, given who he plays for, that’s actually probably an apt use of the expression.

    Flash Gordon will lead the League in receiving, and lead the browns to the playoffs in 2014.

    The only good pick the browns have selected and it was in the supplemental draft……also weren’t they thinking about trading gordon before last season? The browns are just sad.

    Josh Gordon will be good for years. A hungry team with hungry coaches who added key veterans who where on winning teams will help this team get on the right track. With a good draft this team can finally prove they can be contendors

    He had a Probowl season in fourteen games with a combination of Hoyer, Campbell and Weeden slinging the ball. He could see an increase in that easily this season. All he needs to do is stay away from the weed and he’ll be setting records in no time.

    I’m not going to debate that Gordon isn’t good. I’m going to debate that he is elite. He had QBs that were all playing for their careers flinging him the ball 100 times a game. The ball will be much more spread out, the running game will be more controlled, and the defense will win them games.

    Lets not forget this guy is one slip up away from becoming Justin Blackmon.

    One hit wonder. C’mon…it’s the Browns.

  17. kwjsb says: Apr 9, 2014 4:16 PM

    Draft Wakins to go opposite this guy and defenses will not know where to double up

  18. godofwine330 says: Apr 9, 2014 4:46 PM

    To see him and Watkins would be AMAZING! Just wow!Of course part of the reason the Browns threw so much is that they couldn’t, I mean COULDN’T run. But, he did have pretty poor QB play all nearly season and he still performed. With a better QB he may do better.

    C’mon Browns pair him up with Johnny Football and solidify the O-Line in the draft
