Report: Sashi Brown indifferent on Josh Gordon’s return
Cleveland Browns Executive Vice President Sashi Brown is not letting the questions surrounding Josh Gordon’s return become a distraction.
The Cleveland Browns are awaiting the announcement on Josh Gordon‘s potential reinstatement, but Executive Vice President Sashi Brown does not seem too worried.
In a report on Ohio.com by Nate Ulrich, Brown explains how there is not too much stress coming with the anticipation of the announcement.
"“We’re holding tight, and if something positive comes out, great,” head of football operations Sashi Brown said Monday at the NFL owners meetings in Boca Raton, Fla. “If not, we’ll prepare for that, too.” On Feb. 25 at the NFL Scouting Combine, Brown made it clear the team was willing to welcome Gordon back, but he didn’t seem as enthusiastic about the prospect Monday. “If Josh comes back, great,” Brown said. “And if he doesn’t, we’re ready.”"
There is no other way for Brown to answer questions about Gordon. He is not going to come out and say that the team desperately needs him back. He has to act professional and be ready to move forward without Gordon, which is a possibility, although unlikely.
Gordon has remained out of the news, except for some tweets some are taking to be cryptic, which have since been deleted.
If the Browns did not want Gordon back, the front office could have already come out and said so, making it appear like he will be welcomed back if he is reinstated.
Head Coach Hue Jackson shared similar views to Brown regarding Gordon.
Via the article:
"But the Browns are preparing to move on without Gordon. They should find out soon whether they have any other choice. “I always learned something a long time ago — you never worry about something you never had,” coach Hue Jackson said. “I’ve never had any contact with him, so I’m going to plan on what’s in our building now and go from there.”"
Brown and Jackson are saying all the right things and will continue to do so until a decision is made regarding Gordon’s future in the NFL and with the Browns.
The level-headed mentality being displayed by the front office is a welcome change from the hectic ways of the past.
