The Browns have officially moved Gordon to the active list off the non-football injury list.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said in a statement that Gordon has been cleared for all activities, including games.
Gordon has played 10 games since his monstrous 87-catch, 1,646-yard, 9-touchdown season in 2013. That in itself is reason for caution: Since 2014, of a possible 64 games, Gordon has played in only 10, so owners taking a chance on Gordon need to be prepared for another suspension. In those 10 games, Gordon has played at a 67-catch, 1,020-yard pace, which is pretty good production. (However, he only caught one touchdown, and that’s a bit worrisome.) Volume may be an issue with the arrival of Jarvis Landry (who saw 160 targets last year, albeit for a different team). In the aforementioned 10 games, Gordon saw 28.6 percent of the team’s targets. He’ll be hard-pressed to see that sort of market share with Landry in the fold. Either his efficiency will have to increase or the Browns will have to throw the ball much more—neither scenario seems super likely.
