Cleveland Browns could have given up on wide receiver Josh Gordon, but they have remained patient with him. The former Baylor wide out may be suspended the first four games of the year, but Gordon has the potential to be one of the best young wide outs in the NFL. He has had some bumps in the road though. Gordon is happy that the Browns have stayed true to him, because he has been a very selfish player in the past.
“I have a great support staff here, moreso than I’ve ever felt before,” Gordon said, via the Akron Beacon-Journal. “It plays a part on both sides. Me wanting to give in to that support and allow them to help me and me wanting to be helped, as I opposed to before me trying to be selfish and do things on my own.”
This is good, because it sounds like Gordon is maturing a bit.
