WR- Josh Gordon
Josh Gordon - KEEP
What a whirlwind ride it has been for Josh Gordon!
From being out of football all of last year to being chosen in the supplemental draft to becoming a breakout star.
Gordon's progression was remarkable, as he tallied 805 yards and five touchdowns, with several highlight-reel long bomb receptions.
The scary thing is that No. 13 isn't even at his best yet. Imagine what he can do with a training camp.
Standing 6'3 and unafraid of running through defenders, Gordon is today's prototypical NFL receiver.
Greg Little - KEEP
Arguably the most improved player on the Browns roster, Greg Little is part of a dynamic WR duo with Gordon.
Constantly dropping balls during his 2011 rookie season and well into this past year, it seemed like the emergence of "Flash" Gordon helped Little.
Whether it was because the pressure was off of him to be the number one or that he was afraid of being replaced, No. 15 started to perform.
Leading the team in receptions (53), the former North Carolina student is now well known as a ferocious blocker.
This double threat stamps Little's ticket as a long-term key to Cleveland's offensive success.
Mohamed Massaquoi - CUT
The fourth-year receiver only played all 16 games in his rookie season. Various ailments have plagued Massaquoi and he appeared in just nine matchups during 2012.
Inconsistent play, too many injuries and younger wide outs looking for a chance all point to a change of scenery for MoMass.
Joshua Cribbs - SIGN and TRADE
Cribbs is still feared on both sides of special teams and is tied as the NFL's all-time leader in kickoffs returned for a touchdown with eight.
However, No. 16 has not taken a kick back for a TD since 2009. Rule changes and surrounding personnel contribute to this drought, but excuses don't matter.
The former-Kent State quarterback constantly clamors for more offensive opportunities, which demonstrates his passion.
Comments to the Plain Dealer about feeling "caged" earlier in the season and a controversial Twitter outburst following the loss to Denver are unnecessary distractions.
Five fumbles on returns through 15 games, increasing injury troubles and sporadic use on offense all point to a parting of ways.
New head coach, Rob Chudzinski, is known for creative play calling and that could be good news for Cribbs.
The speedy eight-year man is a proven threat when utilized out of the Wildcat and was second on the club in receptions with 41 in 2011.
Josh Cribbs is currently a free agent. If he can be signed back at a lower rate then trade possibilities may arise.
A squad needing a versatile option on offense may give up something of value.
Travis Benjamin - KEEP
Josh Cribbs 2.0?
Benjamin's blazing speed and variety of talents is what the Browns were hoping for when drafting him this past offseason.
A record-setting 93-yard punt return for a score against Kansas City, double reverses and deep ball threat are all part of the package.
He missed two games with hamstring trouble so as long as nagging injuries do not become a problem then Benjamin looks to have a bright future in Northeast Ohio.
Joshua Cooper - KEEP
Caught up in the numbers game, undrafted wide receiver Josh Cooper could be a diamond in the rough.
He was a favorite target of quarterback Brandon Weeden while they were teammates at Oklahoma State and this rapport has carried over to the NFL.
Cooper averaged 13.3 yards per catch on eight receptions and demonstrated a nose for finding the first down marker.
Jordan Norwood - CUT
The second-year WR has shown flashes of brilliance in his two seasons with the Browns.
Unfortunately for Norwood he appeared in only two games. In both of those outings (Ravens and Giants) No. 10 performed well in the slot.
However, the physical toll from opposing linebackers was too much for his slight 180 pound frame to handle.
Norwood is built for speedy outside routes. Benjamin replaced him in that category and their are bigger bodies that can take the pounding underneath.
