Would be an interesting add to the Browns WR room. I bet being around Landry and Beckham would be good for him.

Wy bring him in though? 30, and how many years since he last played? Who does e play over? Schartz and DPJ probably play in front of him, so why bring him in to be a 5th WR?

I wish im good luck, but somewhere like Detroit with terrible wr's is where he needs to go?

There is absolutely no reason to bring him in to anyone with half a brain.

Josh Gordon was a big, slow receiver the last time he was in the NFL. He'll be even slower now. Hope he catches on a practice squad or something for his sake, but there's no reason for us to bring him in.

Khadarel Hodge was a far superior option and we had to cut him.

Well, for starters, we just dont know when OBJ will finally be healthy and if he will stay on the field. Also, he's a bigger WR than what the team has and was good at going up for the ball- he could really help out Baker on plays like the last one vs the Chefs. He could have at least batted that ball down. As it is, corners in this league can jump over our WRs like they are Cavs PGs. A still developing, young QB like Baker could use a WE that helps to bail him out a little while he eases into working on being good in crunch time. And like I said, I could see Landry's attitude and work ethic rubbing off on him.

I truly don’t get the obsession people have with Josh Gordon. He had one good season almost a decade ago and all he’s done since is get himself suspended. He’s a liability we don’t need.

He also had that one good season based off a rare blend of size and speed.

He no longer has that.

Anyone clamoring for him is falling in love with a name and has no idea what the player still is capable of.

Technically he still has the size, its the speed he no longer has, lol

Did you see how bad Gordon was the last time he was in the league? He got cut from NE in 2019 because he had lost that speed, he was picked up by Seattle because of hope, but he didnt have that elite speed anymore. He was ok, maybe even a better than average receiver. But Gordon would be our 5th or 6th best receiver, so he doesnt see the field even if OBJ has issues.

On top of that he has no chemistry with Baker, doesnt know the plays, wasnt here for training camp and most important we are not receiver desperate, this is not the type of move you make when you are deep at receiver.

So many reasons its a bad idea, but i am rooting for him to catch on in a place like Detroit that needs receivers.

"blend" is the object.

"of size and speed" is the prepositional phrase that describes it.

Saying he no longer has that blend is accurate.

I was joking. 2 years ago he was ok, i watched him in NE and Seattle. But like i said above, he would be our 5th or 6th best receiver. We just dont need him.
