On Monday afternoon, the Cleveland Browns came to terms on a four-year deal worth $5.3 million ($3.8 million guaranteed) with troubled wide receiver Josh Gordon, according to a report filed by the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
#Browns have signed Josh Gordon to 4-year deal, source tells pd. @caplan first reported they agreed to terms. 4 yr, 5.3 mill, 3.8 mill guar— Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) July 16, 2012
Gordon was selected in the second round of the 2012 NFL supplemental draft and was the only player taken. After showing flashes of brilliance at Baylor University, Gordon had problems with drugs and tested positive for Marijuana on at least two separate occasions, which ultimately cut his college career short.
The Browns hope to push into the future with Gordon as a centerpiece of the team's offensive attack along with first round selections Brandon Weeden at quarterback and running back Trent Richardson.
