I guess Newton’s third law applies to the NFL as well. After being on the highest of highs since drafting Johnny Manziel last night, news came out that star receiver Josh Gordon is facing a one-year suspension. Now it gets worse.
ESPN’s Chris Mortenson is reporting that Browns receiver Nate Burleson has fractured his arm during the team’s OTAs. Burleson was signed away from the Lions during this year’s free agency.
Good news is that Burleson is expected back for the Browns’ training camp. Still, less than 24 hours after being on top of their figurative mountain, the back-to-back bad news has to be disheartening for fans of the franchise that have gotten used to stuff like this happening.
