Thanks to the suspension to No. 1 wideout Josh Gordon to start the season, Bess has been receiving a lot of work with the team’s top talents and there is a strong change that he will open the season as the No. 2 wide receiver. Bess only needs to beat out Greg Little for the job.
Bess would primarily be a slot receiver in three-wide sets, but you can’t count out his skills as an X receiver.
The interesting part about this story is that Bess is more of a possession receiver, while the Browns are looking to install a high pace, high profile passing attack in 2013.
If that is the plan, the team is going to need Bess to develop as a wide receiver.
