Flash is Back; Browns Wide Out Josh Gordon Returns to the Team

The Cleveland Browns and their fans have another reason to be excited for the start of the upcoming NFL season. This afternoon roughly a quarter after noon Josh Gordon announced via Twitter that he will be returning to the team after a four week hiatus. Here’s what the receiver had to say.

“Dear Cleveland Browns and NFL family,

Thank you for your love, support, and most importantly your patience as I took the time needed to ensure my overall mental and physical health.

More specifically, I would like to thank the NFL, NFLPA, the entire Cleveland Browns organization, the University of Florida, and my friend and business manager Michael Johnson Jr for playing such pivotal roles during this process. This has by no means been an easy road and I’m extremely grateful to have all of you in my life.

As I humbly return to being a member of this team with an opportunity to get back to playing this game I love, I realize in order for me to reach my full potential my primary focus must remain on my sobriety and mental well-being.

Let’s get to work!”

The Browns also released a statement from GM John Dorsey regarding the return of Gordon to the team:

“First off, we are pleased for Josh. His overall health and well-being is what is most important. We commend Josh for his hard work, commitment and focus on becoming the best version of himself. We are glad Josh has reached a point where he can return to our organization, be in our building and be around his teammates. As he assimilates back to our team, Josh will initially participate in meetings and conditioning and will gradually resume all football activities as deemed appropriate.”

This should be very exciting news for Browns fans and cause opposing defensive coordinators to lose sleep at night.

This announcements comes after former Pro-Bowl wide receiver Dez Bryant visited Cleveland. The potential signing of Bryant, along with Jarvis Landry and the return of Gordon will make the Browns a lethal offensive unit.

The excitement is starting to reach heights in Cleveland that haven’t been seen since the late 80’s and early ‘90’s. The ceiling of this team may have just risen, especially if Bryant does sign.

What can Browns fans expect now with the season less than a month away?

Perhaps a playoff birth for the first time since 2002.
