Fans, media, and Browns front office personnel are watching WR Josh Gordon to see if he has learned from his impending two game suspension or if he will continue to make immature decisions.
On the field has never been the problem. He was dominant through the first few days of camp and is by far the most talented receiver on the roster.
However, on Monday, he was pulled from practice half way through for what coach Rob Chudzinski said was patellar tendonitis.
Injury or not, Gordon was also scolded during that same practice for not finishing plays or running after the catch. He is frequently the last receiver into position drills and has yet to work with Greg Little and Brandon Weeden after practice, despite the fact that Little and Weeden have worked on routes after every single session thus far.
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 QB Brandon Weeden's big arm. The two game suspension puts a dent in his upside, as does his work ethic.
