Found July 12, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
As we get closer to the season, Colt McCoy is one of the biggest names, if not the biggest name, who is very available via trade. McCoy is the incumbent starter in Cleveland, but struggled en route to a 4-12 record last year, prompting the Browns to use a 1st round pick on Brandon Weeden, a soon to be 29 year old quarterback. Given Weeden’s age, they want him out there week 1 and because of McCoy’s popularity in the locker room, they want him gone so as not to create any distractions for Weeden. They are shopping him on the cheap. The Eagles and Packers have been thrown around as possibilities as they are good teams in need of backup quarterbacks, but so far no deal has been reached. Interest will pick up in Training Camp as teams are given a chance to more accurately assess their quarterback situation. One team that makes some sense, according to ESPN Cleveland, is the New Orleans Saints. The Saints have Chase Daniel as their primary backup behind starter Drew Brees right now. The ...

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...

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, 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...
