Browns extremely thin -- and short -- at wide receiver
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With wideout Josh Gordon facing a one-year suspension, the Browns are dangerously thin at receiver entering 2015. ESPN.com notes the Browns have two returning slot receivers in Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel and "an undersized situational receiver" in 5-10 Travis Benjamin.

Miles Austin is scheduled for unrestricted free agency after catching 47 passes for 568 yards and two touchdowns in 12 games. Tight end Jordan Cameron also is set to be an unrestricted free agent.

Hawkins, a 5-7, 180-pounder, led the team with 63 grabs for 824 yards, with two touchdowns. Cleveland failed to add a wideout in last year's draft but almost certainly must address the position in the 2015 draft.

Reports: Josh Gordon tests positive again, facing 1-year ban
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Browns wideout Josh Gordon tested positive for alcohol and "now will be subject to a one-year banishment," sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Gordon was suspended for the first 10 games this season for a repeat violation of the league's drug policy.

Pro Football Talk reports that because of Gordon's past DUI, alcohol was one of the substances for which he was being tested. The website said a one-year suspension is likely a "done deal."

The Browns also suspended Gordon for missing a Saturday walkthrough before the regular-season finale, and CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported then the Browns might be ready to part ways with the ultra-talented 23-year-old.

The Browns released the following statement regarding the news: 

"Clearly we are very disappointed to hear the latest report regarding Josh. At this point, due to the confidential nature of the NFL’s substance abuse policy, we have not been made aware by the league of a failed test. We are in the process of gathering more information and will provide further comment at the appropriate time."

Report: Jordan Cameron expected to leave via free agency
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Browns tight end Jordan Cameron is set to become an unrestricted free agent, and ESPNCleveland.com does not expect him to re-sign with Cleveland. A concussion and shoulder injury limited Cameron to 10 games this season.

The 26-year-old caught 24 passes for 424 yards and two touchdowns after a breakout 2013 season in which he made 80 grabs for 917 yards and seven scores.

Brian Hoyer wants to compete for starting QB role in Cleveland
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Quarterback Brian Hoyer is open to returning to the Browns in 2015, if he is given a chance to compete for the starting role, Hoyer's agent Joe Linta told NBC Sports.

Hoyer started the first 13 games of the season and went 7-6. However, he was replaced by Johnny Manziel.

"I think the only thing that would make him not [want to] come back is if they said Manziel or whoever we take in the draft or whoever we sign in free agency is going to be the starter and you will only be the backup," Linta said.

Hoyer is set to become a free agent in the offseason and Linta added he expects to meet with the Browns soon to discuss their options.

Former Browns GM still feels Manziel needs tailor-made offense
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

When former Browns general manager Phil Savage provided his assessment of quarterback Johnny Manziel leading up to the 2014 NFL Draft, he said whichever team drafted Manziel, they needed to make a schematic commitment to him, per Cleveland.com.

After watching Manziel struggle during his rookie season, Savage -- who is now the executive director of the Senior Bowl -- hasn't changed his opinion.

"I don't know all the intimate details of how it went down, but to me Manziel needed to go a place where they would shape the offense around him and build elements into it that he could perform," Savage said. "If you were going to pour him into a more traditional style of offense, then it was going to be a waste of his ability because his ability is to play backyard football.

"You have to create circumstances where almost artificially you give him those same sorts of pictures and same sorts of reads."

Manziel started the season as the Browns backup quarterback in 2014 before starting two games late in the season. Unfortunately, he led the Browns to three points and seven first downs in six quarters as a starter before suffering a hamstring injury.

On Thursday, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam was non-committal about Manziel's future with the franchise. He said the team is on a mission to find a starter who can "make us a championship team." New Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo added he's not sure if the Browns' starting quarterback is on the roster. 

"He's a first-round pick, so there was obvious ability there," Savage, who was the Browns general manager from 2005-08, said of Manziel. "I mean it's not over with yet, but wow. Based on how the season ended, there's more questions now than on the Thursday night they drafted him."
