PLAYERS: Josh Gordon
TEAMS: Cleveland Browns
According to ProFootballWeekly.com, it looks like rookie wide receiver Josh Gordon will be the Cleveland Browns’ top deep threat going forward this season.
“The way we hear it, don’t be surprised if Browns rookie WR Josh Gordon is the club’s clear-cut top downfield threat going forward. Gordon is a big, athletic target who can stretch the field. When the Browns are looking to take big-play shots, Gordon will be an obvious option,” wrote PFW.
Even though Gordon is still raw and has plenty of room to grow, he made a couple of nice plays against the Giants last week. He could turn into Brandon Weeden’s top target.

Brandon Weeden is The Oldest NFL Player Ever

Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden is already the oldest rookie in the NFL at the ripe old age of 29, but, according to the Cleveland Browns, Weeden is actually 129 years old.
