AFC Notes: Browns, Chiefs, Steelers


Browns GM John Dorsey made it clear that they’re “100 percent” behind WR Josh Gordon moving forward.

“I think Josh Gordon is a physical freak,” Dorsey said, via Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. “I’ve sat down and talked to him, had numerous conversations, and my message to Josh Gordon is, ‘You know what? As long as you’re behind the Cleveland Browns 100 percent, I’m 100 percent behind Josh Gordon.’

“That’s my mindset. He and I have communicated, and there’s some things that I’ve helped him with and we’ve sat and discussed. But right now, I love where he is right now. I think he’s in a good place right now, but we’ll see how this thing moves forward.”
