Browns News: Brian Hoyer Says Josh Gordon Can't Be The Team's "Savior"

Cleveland Browns starting quarterback Brian Hoyer came out on Monday and cautioned against "crazy expectations" for wide receiver Josh Gordon, who returned to the team Monday after serving a ten-game suspension.

"We all know what Josh is capable of, but let’s not put all this pressure on him to be the savior,” Hoyer said, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer and NBC's Pro Football Talk. “We all have to be better on offense. We all have to be more consistent.”

Hoyer added that he trusts that Mike Pettine and the coaching staff will have a plan in place for Gordon, however Pettine declined to mention any specifics of said plan during his Monday press conference.

“To me it comes down to functioning within the structure of the offense. We will be very smart,” Pettine said, as reported by Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal.
