Josh Gordon was asked what his response would be if the Cleveland Browns asked him to come back and had the perfect reply
A former Cleveland Browns selection in the 2012 Supplemental NFL Draft, Josh Gordon has been enjoying his time in the XFL with the Seattle Sea Dragons. He and Ben DiNucci, who spent time with the Dallas Cowboys, have already proven to have a solid rapport with one another.
At 31 years old, Gordon has shown he still has something left in the tank and could try to get back into the NFL in 2023. He did appear in the league this past season with the Tennessee Titans but appeared in just two games and recorded no stats before being cut.
Perhaps his latest stint will be enough for another shot and he was asked recently about coming back to Cleveland. On betJack's Ohio Sports podcast, Grant Puskar and Phil Taylor spoke with Gordon and asked what his response would be if Andrew Berry were to call. Gordon looked serious for a second, before delivering a hilarious response — asking for a good realtor because he would be on his way back to Cleveland.
Gordon was added to Cleveland's roster in 2012 and led the NFL in receiving yards during the 2013 season when he had 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns on 87 receptions. That came while playing in just 14 games due to a two-game suspension to start the season.
Josh Gordon had some great moments with the Cleveland Browns
Unfortunately, the off-field issues continued to lead to suspensions as Gordon appeared in just 41 games between 2012 and 2018. He was then traded to the New England Patriots during the 2018 campaign and got a Super Bowl ring — despite being suspended again.
Once the league softened it's stance on off-field testing, Gordon no longer had to deal with any bans but he was also no longer the player we saw haul in an impressive touchdown reception in the tie against Pittsburgh in Week 1 of the 2018 season.
In all, he had 3,106 yards and 16 touchdowns while averaging more than 17 yards per catch. But if it were up to him, he would add to those totals in 2023.
