NFL Hall of Fame WR Cris Carter said he believes the Cleveland Browns should release WR Josh Gordon in order to get his attention and make him make changes in his life. "I feel for the kid," Carter said. "My situation was very, very similar. If I'm the Cleveland Browns - and it's gut-wrenching for me to say this - I really think that the only thing that's going to help the kid is if they release him." Carter was released by the Philadelphia Eagles when he was dealing with substance-abuse issues.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall said he would like to play at least six more years in the NFL. Marshall said one of his goals is to surpass the numbers put up by Hall of Fame WR Cris Carter. "They're going to have to rip the jersey off of my back [for me to stop playing]," Marshall said. "I've always said I want to play 14 years. That's always been my goal. But maybe [I'll play until I'm] 36 years old. Who knows?
"I'm trying to pass Cris Carter in everything. I don't think I have it in me to go for Jerry [Rice]. That's 20 years I would have to play. Maybe with modern medicine and all this new technology, I could potentially play that long, but I've had three hip surgeries. I'm just asking for six more [years in the league]."

ESPN analyst Cris Carter, a former teammate of retired WR Randy Moss with the Minnesota Vikings, said he has no doubts Moss would arrive to a team in great shape. Carter also believes Moss still has blazing speed. However, Carter wonders whether Moss would quit on a team if things do not go his way. "The one thing you have to address with Randy Moss is not a conditioning thing," Carter said. "It's not an age thing. It needs to be addressed. I believe it's the elephant in the room. It's that thing called quit. And Randy, not like any other superstar I've met, he has more quit in him than any of those other players ... Randy, when things don't go well, like no other player I've ever been around or associated with, he has a quit mechanism in him that's huge. That needs to be addressed before he signs with any team."
