Found July 13, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
Never to be mistaken for George Allen, whose well-known suggestionabout the connection between the time-space continuum and winning games stretched about as far as the tip of his nose, Cleveland Browns coach Pat Shurmur might want to paraphrase the famously impatient Hall of Famer's legendary admonition. With the investment of a second-round choice in Thursday's supplemental draft on former Baylor/Utah wide receiver Josh Gordon, the lone prospect selected in the special summer lottery, the Brown's future is, obviously, well ... the future. Anything can happen between now (which is when Allen contended is the future) and the start of the season. But the admitted projection by Cleveland officials for an offense that statistically ranked among the four lowest in the NFL in each of the past four seasons, and has been No. 23 or worse in all but one of the last 10 years, is to start rookies at quarterback (Brandon Weeden), tailback (Trent Richardson), and right tackle (...

Tom Heckert calls Josh Gordon “eventual starter”

Most people in the comments seem satisfied with the risk level that the Browns took today in selecting Josh Gordon with a 2013 second round pick by way of the supplemental NFL draft. Gordon, like current Browns receiver Greg Little, has had an idle year before entering the NFL. Maybe that is why when Tom Heckert spoke to the media today after the pick, he referred to Gordon as an...

Early Cleveland Browns Offensive Questions As Training Camp Approaches

It’s amazing to consider that training camp begins in just two weeks. The Browns will kick-start their 2012 season with a helmet practice from 8:45-11:15 a.m. on Saturday, July 28. In the meanwhile, it’s been a fairly exciting offseason for the Brownies, especially on the offensive side. In the past few years, defense was the focus, as the team added new talents such as Phil...

Josh Gordon "shocked" he went so high in the supplemental draft

Former Baylor receiver Josh Gordon said “I was more than shocked for sure,” he told FOX 26 Sports in Houston after being picked in the 2nd round of the 2012 supplemental draft by the Cleveland Browns. “I definitely didn’t think that high, but I’m thankful for the opportunity. . . . I’m definitely in shock.  It still probably hasn’t hit me yet.” Josh's agent...

Josh Gordon’s Selection Signals Sense of Urgency in Berea

When it comes to the Urgency Alarm in Berea, Ohio, I’m admittedly torn on the visual. I like to believe that it’s a full-go, all-on sirens and lights show; bright orange and white, orbiting lights that, when shining in your rear-view mirror make your stomach fall to your ankles. The blaring of the sirens could be mistaken for an air raid or, at worst, a get-to-the shelter type...

Panic! Run Around In Circles!

Forrest Gump said, “Stupid is as stupid does.” If we translate that into an NFL language, we would say, “the Browns are as the Browns do.” In today’s supplemental draft, the Browns picked up Baylor WR John Gordon, who was dismissed from the program last year after failing a drug test. In his sophomore season (2010), he caught 42 balls for 714 yds and 7 TDs. Pretty good...

Browns select Josh Gordon with second rounder in supplemental draft

The Cleveland Browns didn’t leave anything to chance in bidding a second rounder to select former Baylor receiver Josh Gordon. It has been confirmed on NFL.com, so you’ll have another receiver added to Mike Holmgren’s infamous “pile” that he talks about. Tom Heckert and company must have really liked Gordon, or they were paranoid about bidding on another receiver and losing...
