Browns | Teammate does not think Josh Gordon should be cut

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 18:10:07 -0700

Cleveland Browns SS Donte Whitner said the team should not release WR Josh Gordon, because the players and coaches need to help him out with off-field issues. "We have to help him collectively. It's not going be one person that helps him, it's not going to be two people that help him. It's gonna come from the front office, the coaching staff, the players and his whole family. We have to help him - not only for football purposes, but for life purposes to get his life in order," Whitner said. Whitner said he is one of several teammates that have reached out to Gordon, who is very remorseful for what has happened.

Browns | Offense to focus on ground game

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 15:28:18 -0700

Cleveland Browns SS Donte Whitner said the team's offense will be based on running the football heavily. "I'm going to stand back and let this competition develop and may the best man win, but our offense is gonna be predicated on running the football and being physical in the run game also," Whitner told SiriusXM NFL Radio. "You can't just ask both quarterbacks to stand back there and throw the ball 35, 40 times a game."

Fantasy Tip: New offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's zone-blocking scheme should fit well with Ben Tate's abilities. Tate, who is expected to be the workhorse back for the team, won't come cheaply in drafts this year as a result.

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.

Browns | Hall of Famer thinks Josh Gordon should be cut

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 11:39:34 -0700

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.

Browns | Former teammate: Josh Gordon needs help

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 09:56:00 -0700

Indianapolis Colts LB D'Qwell Jackson, a former teammate of Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon, said on his Twitter account that Gordon is in need of help to pick up the pieces of his life. "He needs help, he really does," Jackson told ESPN.com. "He needs people to extend themselves and probably have to do more than they wanted to do. But if (the Browns) care anything about the kid, they have to do it." Two other people close to Gordon have said he has had substance-abuse issues since high school and have urged him to seek professional help. A league source believes the Browns are partly to blame because they haven't set Gordon up with a support system.

Fantasy Tip: One has to wonder at this point if Gordon's bright playing future is in serious jeopardy. He's already facing a year-long suspension, and his latest trouble won't help him avoid sitting out an entire season. He's an extremely risky selection, even as your WR4 or 5.

Browns | Chris Johnson supports Johnny Manziel

Sun, 06 Jul 2014 07:10:39 -0700

New York Jets RB Chris Johnson supported Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel, saying he should be his own man when it comes to off the field activities. "Be your own man," Johnson said. "Do what you got to do. It's the offseason. That's when you get time to do whatever you want to do and live your life. I'm pretty sure once the season gets here, he'll be all right. He's going to focus in on football. But this is the time now to where he'll be able to hang out and do some of the things you want to do. Because once the season gets here, you really have no life. It's just football and football."

Browns | Josh Gordon arrested

Sat, 05 Jul 2014 12:01:10 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was arrested Saturday, July 5, for driving while intoxicated, according to police in Raleigh, N.C.

Fantasy Tip: It's impossible to envision a situation where Gordon suits up for the Browns this year and this could put his NFL career in jeopardy. He was already facing a possible season-long suspension for marijuana use, so any chance he might have had for a reduced suspension has vanished.
