When cover32 released its list of the top 10 wide receivers in the NFL today, there were plenty of people angry about their favorite team’s pass catcher not making the list. It made for a spirited debate in the “Comments” section below the article. The second batch of WRs, Nos. 11-20, generated a similar response.

I hate: The Josh Gordon suspense

As difficult as it is to believe, it’s been a little under three months since the initial announcement of Josh Gordon’s possible 16 game suspension for a second failed drug test.

Cleveland Browns: Josh Gordon Didn't Exhale

We all remember when former President Bill Clinton famously said that he didn't inhale when referring to a question regarding his past marijuana use.  It was the punchline of many jokes for a while but I'm not sure Josh Gordon's camp saying the same thing in a way will be the brunt of too many jokes for that long. Gordon's legal team plans to use the second hand...

This is a rumor that hasn’t even reached the Twittersphere but if something of this magnitude escapes the lips of Chris Mortensen, it’s worth getting excited about.
