Cleveland Browns Counting On Big Year From Wide Receivers


There is plenty of hype surrounding the Cleveland Browns offense heading in to the 2013-14 NFL season, thanks to the new vertical passing system that has been installed by new head coach Rob Chudzinski. With an emphasis on the downfield passing game, the Browns are counting on big years from their offensive weapons more than ever.

From Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

The Browns are counting on better years from Josh Gordon, Greg Little, Travis Benjamin and tight end Jordan Cameron. They’re also excited about Davone Bess’ experience and production on third down and are hoping for a significant contribution from David Nelson. Both will add speed. The Browns will also undoubtedly keep their eyes on the waiver wire.

For Little, it will be more important than ever that he steps up in the offense.

Gordon will be suspended for the first two games of the season, which means he will serve a prominent role in the passing game.

Little has struggled with drops and consistency in the past, so he will really need to pull it all together so that he can be the type of impact player that the Browns are hoping for to take the offense to another level.
