Cleveland Browns: Taking stock of the wide receivers
By Randy Gurzi
The Cleveland Browns changed a lot about their roster this offseason. Who do they now have at wide receiver, and what wii their roles be?
The Cleveland Browns offense as a whole was bad last season, but their wide receiver corps was especially problematic.
They ranked just 22nd in the league with kist 201.8 yards per game, but even that number makes the group seem better than they actually were.
Cleveland was eld in receptions by running back Duke Johnson with 693 yards and behind him were tight ends Seth DeValve with 395 yards and David Njoku with 386.
The top wide receiver for the Browns was Ricardo Louis who had 357 yards. He barely edged out Josh Gordon — who played just five games — and had a horrific catch percentage of just 44.3 percent as it too 61 targets to get him 27 receptions.
New general manager John Dorsey has been brought in to change the culture of this team that struggled the past two seasons to get just one win.
One area of focus has been the pass catchers as he’s brought in a couple new faces to provide competition at the position. Here we look at who is on the roster and what their role should be for the Browns in the 2018 NFL Season.
