Found July 06, 2013 on Juan Elway:
They call me ‘Flash’ Juan… 2012 Recap:  Only 2 rookie WRs put up better production then Josh Gordon last season.  They were TY Hilton and Justin Blackmon.  Gordon, who was taken in the supplemental draft by the Browns was know for his size and speed in college and it translated onto the field.  Gordon showed progress throughout the season, but was too reliant on the big play to show consistency.  Gordon finished 50th among WRs, with 6.9 FPG, on 50 rec (53.2% catch rate) for 805 yards and 5 TDs.  Only 6 WRs caught the ball an average of more than 9 yards downfield and gained more than 6 yards after the catch, Gordon was one and Danario Alexander was another.  This gives us a slight barometer of what Norv Turner’s deep pass attack can do. What’s Changed:  The Browns brought in new HC Rob Chudzinski and OC Norv Turner, who love to set up the deep passing game with a power running game.  The blueprint is there and the pieces are there, now can Norv and Chud get it going.  Obviously, a lot has to do with the health of Trent Richardson and the progress of Brandon Weeden.  Gordon fits right into what they want to do, but a 2 game suspension looms.  Gordon violated the NFL’s substance abuse policy and is one step away from getting suspended for a year.  With his checkered past is question, fantasy owners will have to take this into consideration when evaluating Gordon. Outlook:  The 2 game suspension will not scare me off from drafting Gordon at the right price.  Gordon has the perfect skill set to go along with the arm of Weeden and the coaching philosophies of Norv and Chud.  He will have every chance to start and produce once he returns.  The upside is there and through the roof, just make sure you take everything into consideration when drafting Flash.

Kickers are most certainly an afterthought in the NFL, as there are often more than a few that bounce around from team-to-team throughout the course of every season. Most teams consider their kickers to be expendable.
