Josh Gordon: Browns have best receiving corps in the NFL

AP

Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has a high opinion of himself, and his teammates.

Gordon said today that he believes he’s part of the best group of wide receivers in the NFL.

“The best receiving corps in the league, in my opinion, already. Just because of talent alone,” Gordon said. “We’re not short on talent at the wide receiver position at all.”

It’s easy to laugh at anyone talking up a team that was 0-16 last year, but the Browns undeniably have talent at the position. Gordon was the best receiver in the league in 2013, before a series of positive drug tests derailed his career. The newly arrived Jarvis Landry led the league in catches last year, and Corey Coleman was a first-round pick.

So while Gordon might be pushing things a bit, there’s little doubt that the Browns have talent at wide receiver. Tyrod Taylor and Baker Mayfield have some good weapons to work with.

  1. That’s like Trump saying it was a successful NK summit. Misleading and factually incorrect.

  2. Talent? Yes. Gordon is 4 years away from when he was the best WR in the league. Coleman is a 1st rouonder but how well have the Browns done with previous 1st rounders? Landry is the only proven commodity at this point.
    Best WR corps in the league? No.

  3. Funny you mention Corey Coleman and 0-16 in the same paragraph. Replace him on that route with someone else on that last play and 0-16 becomes 1-15.

    You can cry and whine all you want, but Trump is still your president. But yes, keep complaining about OUR president on a football site. Sad.

    At least try to hide that you’re still smokin

    /////////////////.

    While that is really funny, not. Tell us who do you think has the best recievers?

  7. What good is any player if they have no confidence in their ability. I expect every player to think they are the best. So, don’t disparage a player for feelings of confidence for himself and his team. The Browns need this, especially after the last two seasons.

  10. Passing is important in 3 ways. Accurately throwing passes, catching those passes, and passing those pesky drug tests.

  11. People are asking if he’s high but have yet to name a better receiving core on paper. I’ll wait because I’m interested in the answer too. There is none.

  12. I wouldn’t trade Tampa Bay’s receivers for theirs.

    Mike Evans
    DeSean Jackson
    Chris Godwin
    Adam Humphries

    Cameron Brate and 2017 first round pick OJ Howard at tight end. I just need Winston to start hitting deep throws.

    I’m hoping the Browns are competitive this year.
    _____________________________________________________________________________________

    Me too but I’m running out of years….

  14. Golden Tate 1000 yards in 2017-not 2013
    Marvin Jones very solid numbers in 2017
    Kenny Golladay rookie last year but solid numbers considering injuries and loaded with potential, plus they have Stafford instead of Taylor/Mayfield throwing them the rock

    You actually had something going until you listed Humphries….

  16. Edelman
    Hogan
    Gronkowski
    Matthews
    Patterson
    Dorsett
    Britt
    W/Brady throwing….. NUFF SAID

  17. Plus, Njoku will play ft this year and line up in the slot a lot, and Duke Johnson caught 73 balls out of the backfield last year.

    Browns QBs had 38 turnovers last year. With even marginally competent qb play, they are going to move the ball.

  18. The Browns mucked their draft up so bad. Could have landed Barkley and Nelson, then used their 2 high second round picks to secure a qb of the future.

    That would have given them one of the more promising looking offenses in the NFL, and still a young qb to groom behind Taylor.

    Instead all the eggs are in the Mayfield basket, hoping he grows into an All-Pro.

    Actually, there is a valid point in saying that he is not their president. Trump is clearly showing he only cares about governing for the benefit of his base and his actions have absolutely proven that.

    IF the above posted is still due to pay the full amount of their taxes w/o representation from the highest office in the land, they have every right to claim Trump is not their president.

    He is the president of all people, not just the ones who voted for him.

    That’s as ridiculous as what Gordon spouted off………NUFF SAID

  23. Gordon needs to be tested again. They showed a picture of him on GMF and he is ripped beyond belief. His muscles have muscles.

    Humans don’t develop muscles like that without drugs. I don’t care how much he works out, humans just aren’t built like that.

  24. That’s like Trump saying it was a successful NK summit. Misleading and factually incorrect

    I love how Trump does in five minutes what your messiah couldn’t in 8 years.

  25. Can’t the league agree to give this team a handicap of some sort before each kickoff?? Say around 14-17 points??

    If we’re going to start including non-WR’s in the list, then don’t forget about David Njoku, Duke Johnson, and Carlos Hyde for the Browns…

  27. It’s actually not that far fetched if they play up to their potential, especially Gordon. He has proven he can be elite. Landry is a steady 1,000 yard, move the chains guy. And Coleman was a 1st round pick who showed flashes.

  28. Everyone keeps saying that the Browns are awesome on paper. Do they still have Hue Jackson?! FYI… He would have to go at least 10-6 for the next 8 consecutive years to have a winning percentage over 50% with the Browns.

    ———

    True…..the Lefties, CNN and MSNBC have been triggered since Trump beat Hillary. And they are still not over it. But the good new is that you only have 6 1/2 more years to go

  30. Let’s start the season before you brag. Hopefully Landry can catch a pass beyond 10 yds. Just bales out the QB with short passes. Thats why it’s easy to catch 100 during the season. Wait for the stupid penalties too. He’s excellent at that.

  31. On paper he’s not wrong. The Browns have two pro bowlers and a first round draft pick at receiver, another first round draft pick at tight end and the third best past catching running back in the league in Duke Johnson. On top of that their bench has what could be the steal of the draft in Antonio Calloway who has first round talent but fell due to character issues.

    Not sure why people think he’s out of line.

  32. It made me pause and wonder what team DOES have the best WR corps?

    In the AFC, the teams that stand out at WR are Denver (Thomas/Sanders), KC (Hill/Watkins/Conley), Steelers (Brown and JuJu), Miami (Parker, Stills, Amendola) Houston (Hopkins & Fuller) New England (mentioned above), Raiders (Nelson/Cooper/Bryant) and yes, Cleveland.

    In the NFC, Vikings (Diggs, Thielen) Packers (Adams/Cobb/Graham), Rams (Cooks, Kupp, Woods), Eagles (Agholor, Jeffrey, Wallace), Falcons (Julio, Sanu, and Ridley)

    Honorable mentions: Lions, Saints, Bears, Giants

  33. Browns have best receiving corps in the NFL. – Josh Gordon

    That’s terrific. We’ll all be pulling for the Browns to win a game this season.

  34. Yeah, every team in the league can say they have the best receiving corp before the bullets start flying. Posturing for the cameras means nothing. Let’s revisit this claim after the season starts, shall we?

  35. In order for this to be true, Josh needs to prove that he’s still the player he was in 2013. Until he does so, the number 1 Browns receiver is Jarvis Landry. As far as best in the league, my money is on Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins.

  36. The myth that Josh Gordon has been a world beater since coming back is starting to get to me. Here’s his game logs:
    4-85, 3-69, 5-47, 2-19, 4-115, one TD total.

    Doesn’t scream elite #1 receiver to me. And Jarvis Landry had the incredible feat of catching over 100 passes and not even getting 1000 yards, that’s pretty incredible. I’m sure defenses are trembling.

  37. He is right about the talent, if he’s close to the same guy he was that is an awesome group, idk about best in league but very good. Then again, if he’s not the same, they’re probably average
