Browns had a worker who made sure Josh Gordon was on time and not late

Aaron Shea was formerly employed by the Cleveland Browns. He was a player engagement coach that worked directly with Josh Gordon according to ESPN.

In an interview with ESPN.com, Shea talked about the difficulty of earning Gordon’s respect, and what a delicate balance it was between being a disciplinary figure and friend and losing him completely.

As an official who frequently acted as the liaison between player and coach, it was Shea’s job to get Gordon to pay attention and show up on time.

“If you come in hard right away, you shut him down,” Shea said. “But if you come in and gain his respect, then after that, you can come in hard on him.”

Shea added: “He’s misunderstood. I can see why people are down on him. Josh really needs to grow up because this is it. He’s heard that enough, but I think this is really, really it.”

“I really hope for the best for Josh,” Shea said. “But the way he played this year you could tell just by watching there was something clearly wrong with him.”

It sounds like the Browns did everything and Gordon still messed it up.
