Josh Gordon is now a member of the New England Patriots. The Cleveland Browns first chance to discuss the move took place Tuesday. The players and coaches have already turned the page and moved on.

“I do not think it will have a difference on us at all,” running back Duke Johnson said. “I think we always had that kind of next man up mentality, regardless of who it is or what position it is. It is always about the next-man up. I am just hoping for whatever reason that he is OK with his life or whatever is going on with him. I hope he finds his way.”

So how does the move impact the Browns wide receivers going forward. Jarvis Landry is now the number one receiver.

“It has been the same,” Landry said. “Just continue to be myself and continue to be a helping hand to anybody that has any questions for me. Make plays, that is it. That is what I am here to do. These are the guys that we went into OTAs with and training camp with. I am sure that 5 is comfortable with them, as well as upstairs.”

Antonio Callaway has to serve as the deep threat. It started with his 47-yard touchdown catch Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

“I did not know that I was running that fast,” Callaway said. “That was just out of a burst because I saw the ball. All of us can. I was blessed with my ability to use my speed. That will be a help.”

Newly signed Rod Streater has to be another veteran leader for the rest of the wide receivers. In addition, Streater hopes Cleveland can be his home for years to come.

“I just try to keep working and keep my eyes on getting better, working hard and just focus on getting back out there,” Streater said. “You just have to keep pushing, and whatever happens and whatever opportunity comes up, you have to be ready.”
