Miles Austin, Nate Burleson projected as starters
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With Josh Gordon likely to be suspended, the Browns are poised to enter the season with Miles Austin and Nate Burleson as their starting outside receivers and Andrew Hawkins in the slot, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The paper calls it "one of the NFL's most pedestrian receiving groups."

Austin has battled hamstring injuries and caught just 24 passes last year. Burleson, 32, has six touchdown catches over the past three years.

Hoyer has faith in Browns receiving corps
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer said he's confident in the team's receivers even if Josh Gordon is suspended for the year as expected, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

"Yeah, no doubt," he said. "I look at the guys that we have and I've talked about the guys I throw with but you throw in Nate Burleson, Anthony Armstrong -- I was shocked to know that he didn't play last year,'' said Hoyer. "If you watched him in our spring, he was awesome. Not to mention our tight ends and our skill guys. I feel really confident with who we have and going forward we know that we have what it takes to win games. We know that the guys that are on this team right now are what we're going to have for this season and that's what we're going with, and I feel confident with what we have."

Hoyer's top targets sans Gordon will be tight end Jordan Cameron and receivers Miles Austin, Andrew Hawkins, Burleson and Armstrong.

Nate Burleson will be ready for training camp
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Browns receiver Nate Burleson said Tuesday he'll get the cast off his surgically repaired left arm this week, reports the Akron Beacon Journal.

Burleson broke his arm prior to the NFL Draft in early May. But he said he'll be full go in training camp, which means he's on target for the start of the season.

Burleson could be a starter for the Browns this year with Josh Gordon facing a year-long suspension.

Browns have plan at wide receiver
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Even though Josh Gordon is facing a possible one-year suspension for failing a drug test and Nate Burleson (arm) is not certain for training camp, the Browns aren't hitting the panic button with their receiver position, reports ESPN.

The Browns have no plans to alter their draft board and select a receiver. So far in the draft, the team has selected cornerback Justin Gilbert, quarterback Johnny Manziel, guard Joel Bitonio, linebacker Christian Kirksey and running back Terrance West through the first three rounds.

They have two more picks Saturday barring a trade in Round 4 and Round 7, but general manager Ray Famrer isn't worried.

"We play games in September," Farmer said. "Right now there's still plenty of opportunities for us to acquire players and to make things happen."

If Gordon is out, the Browns would have Greg Little, Andrew Hawkins and Burleson, assuming he's healthy, as their top receivers heading into the season. Farmer believes he can still address the situation.

"Whether it’s trades, drafting someone the [third] day, players that get cut or we acquire somebody from the street," Farmer said "there's always opportunities to acquire players."
