Since making a much-anticipated return, Josh Gordon has flashed the talent that made him one of the NFL’s most electric players before a lengthy suspension.
After an almost three-year absence from football, the Browns wide receiver shined in his Los Angeles debut three weeks ago and followed up that performance by catching his first touchdown in almost four years. In Sunday’s loss to the Ravens, Baltimore kept Gordon—who finished with five catches for 47 yards—mostly in check as he continues to build chemistry within a struggling offense.
“It’s frustrating. It’s tough to get that continuous continuity and rhythm going. Coming from behind the 8-ball, we just really have to do whatever is necessary week by week at practice coming into each game week,” Gordon said postgame. “Just making sure that we’re prepared more than anything. It’s rough. It’s frustrating. It’s tough."
All things considered, Gordon has played pretty well since his return. Those who follow the team pointed out his debut could have been much better with more consistent QB play. HC Hue Jackson pointed out that Gordon made two key blocks during the team's Week 15 game.
