Cleveland Browns enter the 2018 season with high hopes and determination to turn their bad luck around. They might be poised to do so, especially since their star wide receiver Josh Gordon is once again with the team. The 27-year-old previously missed the majority of Browns’ training camp in order to focus on his mental health.
There were a lot of questions surrounding Gordon since he returned, especially those considering his fitness level and ability to contribute at the start of the season. The player tried to answer some of them during his media session, saying that he is feeling great, but that is on the coaches to determine the best workload for him.
“I’m going as much as they tell me to go,” – Gordon told reporters Wednesday. “If they tell me to sit out for a period of time, I do as I’m told. It’s just great being in this atmosphere. Fortunately, I know the plays already, so it’s real good to take the mental reps, physical reps, as much as I can do I try to take advantage of it.“
But, if you ask Flash Gordon for an opinion, he will tell you that he is ready to play as soon as Sunday when Browns meet with Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1.
“No, I told you guys before, I’ll be 100 percent,” – he said. “I feel 100 percent today and I’ll be 100 percent Sunday.“
Cleveland Browns will hope this is true since they would really use a healthy and fit Josh Gordon, who can get them yards and TDs at will like he used to back in 2013.
