Without Josh Gordon, Anthony Armstrong may be the Browns’ most important receiver

As the offseason progresses more and more, the reality begins to set in day-by-day that the Browns must go all of next season, or at least the majority, without star wide receiver Josh Gordon.

No news is good news for the Cleveland Browns

Johnny Manziel hasn’t been great, Brian Hoyer has been ehhh and Anthony Armstrong has been strangely impressive but the most important news out of the first weekend of camp is not about a single player.
