Browns Wide Receiver Josh Gordon Adjusting To Speed Of The NFL

Cleveland Browns rookie wide receiver Josh Gordon has impressed head coach Pat Shurmur during the last couple of practices, according to the coach at Monday's press conference.

"I think Josh is a good example of somebody trying to get it right because there are a lot of things for Josh running parallel right now - the grind of training camp, the newness of playing the game again, of course learning our system and then facing competition. There are a lot of things running parallel. I think, and I don't know if was noticeable to you guys watching, but the last couple of days, he's practicing faster in my mind, he's catching the ball and running with it instead of catching and stopping."

Gordon, who was selected in the 2012 NFL Supplemental Draft, caught two passes for 38 yards in the Browns' 35-10 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Aug. 16. Gordon played his college ball at Baylor. He transferred to Utah prior to the 2011 season, but did not step on the field for the Utes.
