The big losers in the Josh Gordon suspension, other than Gordon, are the Browns.
But Browns *tight end Jordan Cameron could benefit handsomely from this, on the field and at the teller’s window.
The Pro Bowl pass-catcher is now clearly the Browns’ most capable receiving target, and should have the opportunity to put up monster numbers since the Browns don’t many reliable options in the passing game.
While they wait for Miles Austin’s hamstring to explode or Nate Burleson to go out for a pizza or for Andrew Hawkins to develop into something other than a complementary slot player, Cameron should get all the looks from Brian Hoyer and/or Johnny Manziel.
That’s good news for a guy going into the final year of his rookie contract.
Cameron said recently that talks toward an extension were “going well,” and there are many reasons to take care of him now.
Not only do the Browns need to dilute (pun intended) the impact of the bad news about losing the league’s leading receiver from last year, they need to make sure they don’t lose Cameron a year from now, when Gordon might come back.
