Cleveland Browns Sign Miles Austin

Just hours after the Cleveland Browns drafted Johnny Manziel, Josh Gordon faced a season long suspension.  The Browns "replaced" Gordon with Miles Austin today.

Austin had some great years with the Dallas Cowboys, gaining over 1,000 yards in back to back season, and catching over 30 touchdowns from 2009 through 2012. But he has missed 11 games in the last 3 season (6 in 2010 and 5 last season) and caught just 24 passes and zero TDs this past year. Gordon exploded last season, catching 87 passes for 1,646 yards and 9 TDs in just 14 games.  Browns fans and Austin himself understand he is not going to duplicate those numbers.  The Browns main target on offense should still be Jordan Cameron while Ben Tate will see a HEAVY workload in the backfield.  Brian Hoyer will be the Browns QB come Week 1, but how long will it be before we see Johnny Football?
