The Browns completed the anticipated trade with the Miami Dolphins for Davone Bess and rewarded him with a three-year extension. In exchange for Bess, the Browns moved down seven spots in the fourth round (104 to 111) and swapped their fifth-round pick (164) for a seventh-rounder (217).

The Browns believe Greg Little and especially Josh Gordon can make an impact in the new offense, which will stress more long passing than the previous West Coast offense. The new offense also should help QB Brandon Weeden, as he'll be throwing more often out of the shotgun. On paper, it looks promising.
There was a nine-game stretch from Week 5 to Week 14 where Gordon played like a fantasy WR2. He averaged 3.9-71-.56, which projects to #14 WR numbers. His speed is a good match for Weeden's big arm, so Gordon should progress in 2013. As for Little, he gained at least 48 yards and/or scored a TD in seven of his last eight games. It's good to hear that the Browns believe he can make an impact in the new offense.

Reviewing the tapes from last season, the new Browns coaches were very impressed with the improvement of WR Greg Little. In the first five games, he had 11 catches and six drops. In the last 11 games, it was 42 catches and three drops. Little receives high grades for blocking and toughness. He seems to be a significant part of the plan for 2013.
It appears that Little has a strong hold on the WR2 job opposite of Josh Gordon. He averaged 4.4-57-0.4 in the last five games, which are #26 WR-type numbers. It's a small sample size, but Little isn't a bad fantasy WR5/WR6 at this point.

I believe Josh Gordon is the Browns’ No. 1 receiver. I believe Greg Little is a No. 2 or No. 3, depending on whether they finally acquire a veteran. I think more speed (Mike Wallace?) on the outside would relegate Little to the slot, which would make a more formidable threesome.

“Greg kind of refocused on some things, and I’m glad he’s having some success,” Shurmur said. “He doesn’t always catch the most balls, but he’s a tough sucker. He’s blocking and you feel his presence out there.
“He’s gotten away from doing some of the things that I don’t care for, so he’s listening. He wants to be a good player, he wants to be a good pro. … As for Josh Gordon being here, any time you have players that are competing to get better within your group, I think it helps.”

“I just don’t think that I’m going to have that type of issue,” Little said. “I’m seeing the ball a lot better, focusing on the ball instead of just running after the catch. That’s what you see oftentimes, that you’re so open that you’re ready to get that ball, and make a move that you just don’t secure the catch right away.”
