Browns | Have strong feelings about Josh Gordon

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 11:40:09 -0700

Cleveland Browns general manager Ray Farmer said in a statement that the team is disappointed with WR Josh Gordon's arrest, but the organization has stronger feelings about the situation.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon's season and possibly career could be in jeopardy because of his numerous off-field issues. Most owners probably can avoid him because of his possible suspension and off-field issues, but owners in very deep leagues could consider using a late-round flier on him in case he plays at some point in 2014.

Tue, 25 Feb 2014 08:54:55 -0800

Cleveland Browns CEO Joe Banner, who is on his way out of the organization, had the new offensive and defensive coordinators reporting directly to him, according to a league source. The source said Banner was a bit of a control freak and structured the coaching staff so the coordinators answered directly to him. Coordinators generally answer directly to the head coach.
