Josh Gordon signed to exclusive rights free agent contract

When the Browns placed an exclusive rights tender on Gordon earlier this offseason it ensured he wasn't going anywhere - his only other choice would be to not play in the NFL.

Gordon first joined the Browns as a second-round pick in the 2012 supplemental draft. Gordon will make $790,000 next season, far less than he would be getting if he had been able to stay out of trouble.

The Browns announced that they have officially re-signed exclusive rights free agent Josh Gordon.

Gordon returned to the Browns and played five games last season following an National Football League suspension and a lengthy rehab stint. The team opens offseason workouts today.

Gordon should have been an unrestricted free agent by now, but multiple suspensions caused his contract to toll.

In 40 career games, Gordon has 179 receptions for 3,089 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Fullback Danny Vitale, wide receiver Matt Hazel and offensive lineman Austin Reiter also signed one-year ERFA deals on Monday.
