Daily Dawg Tags: Josh Gordon given a final chance


Spanning the virtual globe to bring you the latest news about the Cleveland Browns and the NFL – these are your Daily Dawg Tags for Wednesday, July 27.

The Cleveland Browns open training camp in two days and will do so with Josh Gordon as a member of the roster. The only problem is he will begin on the active/non-football injury list after suffering a quad injury before being reinstated.

The injury does not seem to be anything to worry about right now, but it will keep Gordon off the field until he passes a physical. Once he returns, he will have the chance to prove that he is a changed man.

Let’s take a look at the news surrounding Gordon and the rest of the Browns in a Wednesday edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
