The Cleveland Browns have used supplemental drafts in the past to select some notable players in the history of the franchise.

The 2017 NFL supplemental draft takes place later this week, meaning it is time to drag up those old memories of Bernie Kosar and Josh Gordon, both of whom were taken in past supplemental drafts.

Gordon’s route to Cleveland was much more straight forward than Kosar’s, who essentially forced his way to the Browns. That is, back in the days when players were trying to end up here by any means necessary.

Kosar also has the much better story when it comes to his Browns career, as Gordon provides nothing more than empty hope of a future in Cleveland that will never be. Fans can keep hoping he returns, but even if he is reinstated it is highly unlikely the Browns will keep him.

In more positive news, Joe Thomas shared one of our articles on Twitter, prompting some excitement from the team here at Dawg Pound Daily.

That was neat.

Thomas also appeared on Family Feud last night, having himself a fun time before training camp begins in less than three weeks.

We take a look at all this and more in one of the final Monday editions of the Daily Dawg Tags before training camp gets underway on July 27.
