Well we all knew Josh Gordon could play but nobody could have expected Gordon would be as good as he was against the Chargers last week. After missing almost three full seasons of NFL action due to violations of the league’s substance abuse policy, Gordon finally returned against Los Angeles and didn’t skip a beat. There were times Josh Gordon looked so impressive you could just tell that the defender guarding him (Casey Hayward) had his hands full. Gordon went on to finish with 4 receptions for 85 yards but that was certainly a victory for the 26 year old considering everything he had to overcome to get back on the football field. Now with the Green Bay coming to town Sunday Gordon will do his best to best to carve up the Packers 26th ranked pass defense. Expect Flash Gordon to get better with each game he plays because there’s no way his conditioning can be up to par yet. Essentially this guy just came off the couch and started blowing past NFL defensive backs. One thing that really stands out about Gordon is his size, he has 6’4 220 pound frame which is simply too big for most secondary players. Then there’s the speed and hands the Browns’ receiver brings to the table it’s been stated that Gordon ran a 4.3 40 yard dash at practice. Which is a blazing fast time and if any football even comes near him it’s almost guaranteed that Josh Gordon is going to come down with it. The combination of all those skill sets make the former Baylor alum an elite receiver at the professional level. Really the only thing Gordon has to avoid is relapsing and getting suspended again. As long as he stay clean the Browns should get a huge boost from having their star wide out back in the mix.
