Josh Gordon didn’t waste any time finding new employment. It looks as though the Browns’ suspended wide receiver will see if he can sell cars as fast as he can move on the field.

Gordon took a job at a Cleveland based auto dealership as a goodwill ambassador and will assist the dealership in its community efforts according to Josina Anderson.
Gordon is suspended for the year and will need something to fill his time. Obviously this is a PR move by the troubled receiver, but an effort to do some good in the community while keeping his exposure up (not sure he needs help with that). Hopefully Gordon can use this experience to do some good within Cleveland as he’ll also help with the dealership’s efforts towards the Wounded Warrior Project, one that aims to help wounded veterans of war adjust to life outside of war.
Gordon is someone who has been blessed with truly remarkable talent and athletic ability. As highly touted as Calvin “Megatron” Johnson is within NFL circles, Gordon actually outperformed Johnson statistically last year.
Hopefully Gordon can use his ability to do better in the future, both in the NFL and in his surrounding community as well.
