Over the past few days, there’s been some media hubbub about second-year Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon. In his latest interview with Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal, Gordon talked about general manager Mike Lombardi, the team’s new offense and the ongoing organized team activities in Berea.
“Defenses will be shocked to say the least with how much we’re running down field,” Gordon said in the article. “I’ve never ran this much as a wide receiver ever in my life, and that’s a good thing. And not just me, everyone from the slot guys to running backs, everyone’s got passing plays in the system.”
With this being his first-ever OTAs after being a supplemental draft pick last July, Gordon stated that “it’s definitely slowed down a lot.” The new offensive system designed by head coach Rob Chudzinski and offensive coordinator Norv Turner seems to fit directly in line with the playmaking abilities of Gordon and quarterback Brandon Weeden. Gordon’s comments appeared to be upbeat and exciting, building off his 805-yard rookie season.
