Browns expect Josh Gordon back, will consider Dez Bryant

Browns General Manager John Dorsey said on Wednesday that he “absolutely” expects to have wide receiver Josh Gordon in the lineup this season.

When Gordon, who did not report to training camp while dealing with reported “mental health and anxiety” issues, might be back is less clear, however. Dorsey didn’t answer whether he’s been assured that Gordon won’t be suspended and didn’t offer a timeline for the receiver’s return.

“It could mean many things, a month, 3, days, 10 days, 30 days….let’ see what it is,” Dorsey said, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.

Dorsey also said that wideout Ricardo Louis is going to miss the year with a neck injury, so the team is talking about adding to the receiver group in the coming days. One of the names that Dorsey said is under consideration is former Cowboys wideout Dez Bryant, who was released by Dallas in April and has gone unsigned since passing on an offer from the Ravens.

Dorsey called Bryant “very passionate” and talented while adding that he is only one of the players that the team would consider adding to a group that includes Jarvis Landry, Corey Coleman, Rashard Higgins, Jeff Janis and fourth-round pick Antonio Callaway.

  1. Sometimes things happen in our lives that just naturally mature us. I think Dez would do well in Cleveland. Mayfield to Bryant for the TD. You think “X” marks the spot in cleveland?

  2. Just what the 0-16 Browns need, a self serving egotistical can’t run routes no speed cant catch washed up third string wide receiver with a me me me bad attitude.

    Dez Bryant? No thanks said everyone…..literally.

  3. The fact that they’re still looking at adding wideouts does bode well for Corey Coleman’s future.

  4. The only problem is that Bryant will want the same amount of ridiculous money they gave Landry.

  5. Gordon always schedules these issues at the perfect time to avoid training camp…

  6. I would think despite what they say, Josh Gordon may be gone all year. Maybe for good.

  7. Eagles have 12 Wrs heading into training camp. Howie’s always willing to deal.

    ===============================

    Ye olde injury, mental health, migraine ala Percy Harvin trick to avoid training camp.

  9. Obviously, people somehow know everything there is to know about Dez – more than players on their own favorite team.

    The history of football at every level is dominated by skill position players being prima donnas. It happens at any and every level all the way up. Acting like Dez is the only one or even close to the worst offender is a joke, obviously.

    If an NFL coaching staff can’t handle a player like that (overly aggressive at times, sideline freakouts, etc) then the coaching staff needs to be replaced. Coaches at all level deal with this and the NFL coaches are supposed to be the best.

  10. I watched the presser and felt bad for them having to answer the same question over an over again.

    They were trying to push Dorsey into saying Gordon slipped up. He kept giving the same “I’m respecting his privacy, I think Josh is in a good place and he will be back this season” answer.

    I think I developed “mental health and anxiety issues” watching someone else deal with the media so I also respect the Browns potentially keeping him away from basically leaches who are going to ask him about his issues constantly if he was there.

  11. Corey Coleman must be doing some voodoo on Josh Gordon and Ricardo Lewis. Just like Serrano from Major League, he must be praising JoBu to make a roster spot

  12. I feel bad for Gordon because modern psychiatry is a joke. Hopefully he goes to see someone who can teach him how to cope, like previous generations always learned. This generation is completely absorbed with “feelings”. Feelings often lie to us, and they need to be overcome with a strong will, but that requires training.

  13. I love how everyone says Dez sucks or this or that. Yeah he really sucks that he has had a long and productive NFL career. That sure would be nice to suck that bad. There are tons of college wrs coming into camps this year just to get cut. I bet they wish they sucked as bad as Dez does. I mean it is easy to play wr in the nfl, and to start of course, and to have double digit td seasons? and be a multiple pro bowler? Yeah he really sucks all right. I am sure no team would want him huh. GIVE ME A BREAK!

    Dez hasn’t been the same since he got off the juice and/or GH.

  15. Gordon, Callaway and Bryant all in the same WR meeting room? Jeff Janis’s best contribution to that group would be to get a psychology degree.
