With news that Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon could be suspended for the season
following a fail drug test, the team went out and signed Miles Austin and Earl Bennet on Thursday. Per ESPN
Austin and Bennett joining the Browns may be a sign that the team plans to be without Gordon for the upcoming season. Gordon is facing a season-long suspension after another failed drug test months ago, this time for marijuana, sources told ESPN's "Outside the Lines" this past Friday.
Hamstring injuries hampered Austin in 2013 but the former Cowboys receiver had back to back 1,000-yard seasons in 2009 and '10 and was elected to Pro Bowl during those 2 years.
Bennett caught 185 passes for 2,227 yards and 12 touchdowns in six seasons with the Bears.
