The sorry state of the Cleveland Browns’ wide receiving corps has been well-documented. But then when the Browns released Earl Bennett a couple of weeks back, the glaring need became a pit of despair. I’ve seen a lot of mediocre wide receiver groups in the NFL, but as it stands right now, the 2014 Browns just may be the worst. Yes, I know about Jordan Cameron. No, he does not...

The Cleveland Browns are a team in dire need of wideouts. Arguably their best player, and last season's receiving leader Josh Gordon is facing a likely 16-game suspension for another substance abuse infraction.

Earl Bennett will likely be the most productive Browns WR

Much has been made of the Cleveland Browns’ weakness at the receiving position. Yes, Josh Gordon is a top-5 talent, but he may not play much this season depending on his impending suspension. Yes, Jordan Cameron is a top-5 tight end, but that’s just the thing – he’s a tight end, and right now, I’m only considering the WR position. Taking both of those Pro-Bowlers out of...
