What’s next for the Browns?

On the heels of losing star wide receiver Josh Gordon, Cleveland is set to lose three of its four most productive players to free agency.

Here’s what we know about the four-man class of wideouts to watch.


Josh Gordon – RB, BrownsThe Browns have one of the deepest receiving corps in the league, and with Gordon, they have the potential to be the most dominant unit in the NFL.

The Browns will likely try to make a run at a top-five pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, which would be the second-highest in the history of the franchise.

But the team will likely struggle to find a top receiver for a team that lost three of their top four receivers from 2016, including Gordon, who is entering the final year of his contract.


Isaiah Crowell – WR, BrownsWhile the Browns could land a top wide receiver in the draft, Crowell is a player who could be a perfect fit for Cleveland, especially if they can find a new quarterback for the future.

He has big-play potential and will make plays on deep routes, and has the ability to play inside and outside, as well.

He’s also the best punt returner in the game.


Jaron Brown – WR/KR, BrownsBrown has been the Browns’ top target for years, but this year has been different with the team adding Crowell, Brown and DeAndre Hopkins in free agency to add speed to the receiving corps.

The team will also be without two-time Pro Bowler Josh Gordon for the rest of the season with a torn ACL.

Crowell has the skills to be a top returner and should be the favorite to win the Browns starting job in 2019.


Josh Morgan – WR – ClevelandThe Browns added a ton of talent last offseason, but the team has yet to find its true identity.

This will be a new offensive identity for Cleveland this season.

If Cleveland can find the best receiver to be its quarterback, the Browns will have a strong chance of making the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

However, the team must replace its two top receivers, Crowll and Morgan, with a combination of talent and experience to help the team find its identity.


Jordan Cameron – WR-KR – BrownsThe return of Josh Gordon to Cleveland should be huge for the passing game, but Cameron has shown flashes of brilliance in the past.

He caught 59 passes for 979 yards and four touchdowns last season and showed he can be a quality pass catcher.

He also had the best receiving season of his career last year, catching a career-high 77 passes for 1,069 yards and 14 touchdowns.


DeAndre Harris – RB – BrownsAfter finishing as a top runner-up in the AFC North in 2016, the Bengals moved on to land two of the top running backs in the world in Ezekiel Elliott and Arian Foster.

In 2019, Harris will be competing for the starting job with Giovani Bernard.

He is a solid runner who could see some time on the outside in the backfield.


Jordan Howard – TE – BrownsAs the Browns transition from a running game focused on LeSean McCoy and Isaiah Crowson to a passing game focused around Gordon and Cameron, Howard will be the guy to watch as a receiving option.

He will be looking to continue his breakout season with three straight 100-yard games, which he did in 2017.

He can also catch the ball out of the backfield, and the Browns have no need for an outside threat to play behind Cameron.


Terrance West – WR – BrownsThe addition of DeAndre Savage and Jeremy Hill will be huge in helping the team improve the passing attack.

West is a very productive receiver with a knack for scoring big touchdowns.

He had a career year in 2019, catching 64 passes for 814 yards and eight touchdowns.


Tyler Lockett – TE – BrownsAfter the team traded for Savage, Lockett will be expected to fill the void left by the departure of Gordon.

He finished with a career season with 572 receiving yards and six touchdowns.


Cody Kessler – QB – BrownsWith the return of Gordon and the loss of Gordon’s production, the Chiefs need a quarterback who can step up and take over for the departed Tyrod Taylor.

The former Oklahoma Sooners signal-caller was a key part of the offense in Kansas City’s 2016 Super Bowl run, and could be the best quarterback in the team’s history.

The Chiefs are set to add two more starters in 2018.


Jordan Phillips – WR — BrownsPhillips was the Browns most productive receiver last season, catching 77 passes and having 10 touchdowns.


T.J. Yates – QB/KR – BearsThe Bears will need to address their offensive line if they are to be successful in 2018 and beyond.

But they will also need to find some new pieces to bolster the offensive line.

The Bears added two more offensive
