In the year 2016 we read extremely way too much into social media posts by athletes. But the latest example of this is somewhat noteworthy.
Browns Wide Receiver Josh Gordon, who has been exiled from the NFL has spent some of his free time lately “liking” or “favoriting” tweets sent to him from fans of different teams, telling Gordon how much they want him to play for their team.
He seems to not discriminate, but anything other than the Browns gets a “heart.”
Here are some examples of the tweets Gordon “liked” :

Hey @JOSH_GORDONXII you should follow the rest of the Browns free agents and head on out of there. Philly is calling your name

Maybe we’re reading too much into this. But this week alone three of the Browns’ most talented players have indicated they are going to test the waters of free-agency. If Gordon does want out of Cleveland, he’s not alone. But at this point, he’s just hoping to get back in the league first.
