Browns acquire WR Josh Gordon in Supplemental Draft

The Cleveland Plain Dealer - [Full Article]

Former Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon was taken by the Cleveland Browns in the second round of the NFL's Supplemental Draft this afternoon.

According to reports, 21 of the 32 NFL teams, including the Browns, attended Gordon's workout Tuesday and saw him run a 4.52 in the 40-yard dash, catch every pass thrown to him and record a 36-inch vertical leap.

Gordon comes with baggage. He was suspended indefinitely by Baylor coach Art Briles prior to the 2011 season following a marijuana arrest, and transferred to Utah, where he sat out the season. Rather than play for the Utes this season, he declared for the supplemental draft for financial reasons, according to reports.

Fantasy Impact: 

Keep in mind that Gordon has already missed all offseason activities, so he's going to have to get up to speed quickly in training camp if he hopes to make an impact this season. We're not terribly high on the Cleveland passing game this season, so Gordon is at best a late-round flier in redraft formats. He'll compete with Mohamed Massaquoi for snaps opposite Greg Little.
