Two Intriguing Discoveries From Cleveland Browns’ First Depth Chart
The Cleveland Browns released their first official depth chart of the preseason. Typically, this would not be worthy news considering how poorly the Browns have played in recent years. However, it is different this time around due to the addition of rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel and headline-grabbing wide receiver Josh Gordon.
One of two main discoveries from the first depth chart is that Manziel is listed as the No. 2 quarterback behind projected starter Brian Hoyer. This may not come as a surprise to some because Hoyer got most of the reps with the first-team offense early in training camp. With that being said, Browns head coach Mike Pettine stated Manziel and Hoyer would get an equal chance to prove their worth. The fact that Manziel began taking reps with the first-team offense on Monday shows that he will get his turn to show why he deserves to be named the starter.
Another intriguing discovery from the recently released depth chart is that Gordon is listed as one of the starting wide receivers. The reason why this is a bit premature is because he is currently awaiting a decision on his appeal for receiving a one-year suspension. A decision on his appeal is expected to be announced at some point between one and three weeks. It is certainly interesting that Cleveland has put Gordon as one of the starters. It is almost as if it is their way of showing support for him.
Even though these are two interesting tidbits, the Browns have a long ways to go before they figure out what their 53-man roster will look like in 2014.
