Bills, Browns will check out Josh Gordon on Tuesday
The list of teams heading to Houston to check out wide receiver Josh Gordon’s Tuesday workout keeps growing.
We learned earlier Monday that the Cowboys will be there to watch the former Baylor wideout do his thing and now a pair of AFC clubs have been added to the mix. James Walker of ESPN.com reports that the Bills will be in attendance and Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal passes along the same information about the Browns.
The Bills just signed third-round pick T.J. Graham, one of several players competing for time across from Stevie Johnson on the Bills offense. Donald Jones, David Nelson and Marcus Easley are also on the depth chart, but the Bills haven’t settled on anyone. They chased Robert Meachem as a free agent earlier in the offseason, which indicates a willingness to add bodies to the mix in an attempt to find the right piece for their offensive puzzle.
Cleveland can use all the help they can get on offense so that Brandon Weeden has a shot at doing better than his predecessors at quarterback with the Browns. The top receiver on the depth chart right now is Greg Little and his presence on the roster suggests that they might be less put off by the fact that Gordon missed the entire 2011 season than some other teams. Little was ruled ineligible before the 2010 season by the NCAA, but the Browns made him a second-round pick anyway and they are expecting him to anchor the receiving corps this season.
The Browns were also interested in Gordon’s former Baylor teammate Kendall Wright before the draft. Some scouts have deemed Gordon to be superior to Wright, who went 20th overall to the Titans in April.
