Browns WR Josh Gordon a rare, extraordinary talent

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon drives a camouflaged Porsche he believes is one of a kind. He's become pretty exclusive himself.

Gordon has recorded consecutive 200-yard games, becoming the first player in NFL history to do so. The second-year player leads the Browns with 1,249 receiving yards and can break the team record set by Braylon Edwards (1,289) this week when the Browns visit the New England Patriots. Edwards set the record in 16 games, while Gordon has only played 10 so far after he served a two-game suspension for failed drug tests.

The humble 22-year-old has emerged as an elite receiver and one of the league's rising young stars.

Last week, Gordon capped his 261-yard performance with a 95-yard TD catch in which he broke a tackle and easily outran two Jacksonville defenders.
