After a rather dismal showing last season, some realignment is definitely in the works for the Cleveland Browns. GM Sashi Brown spoke with media on Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. When faced with the inevitable RG3 questions, Brown said that a decision has not been made on the injury-plagued QB but that he remains on the roster and is expected to report for offseason training in April.
With the franchise tag deadline a few short hours away, the conversation shifted to WR Terrelle Pryor. Brown stated that they will not use the tag on Pryor, making him “effectively a free agent”. Set to meet with Pryor’s agent Drew Rosenhaus while here for the Combine, Brown says that while Pryor’s future in Cleveland is a priority, his departure is very possible and “we won’t panic if he’s not on our roster.”
In the background of the dealings in Cleveland looms troubled WR Josh Gordon. Gordon has not played since 2014 due to a number of NFL substance abuse policy violations. Brown spoke only briefly on Gordon’s application for reinstatement saying that he “doesn’t know enough at this point about what that process will look like”. According to Gordon’s manager, he will apply for reinstatement today.
