CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have selected ex-Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon in the NFL Supplemental Draft.
According to a statement issued by the team, Gordon was selected by Cleveland in the second round.
The team’s selection of Gordon means that Cleveland will now lose its second round draft pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
The supplemental draft works differently than the NFL Draft. The Browns had to submit a bid for Gordon, which is the equivalent of a draft pick they are willing to part with for his services. The highest bid wins the player’s services.
According to the Browns, Gordon has not played organized football since 2010.
He was kicked off the Baylor University football team for off-field troubles.
As a sophomore in 2010, he caught 42 passes for 714 yards and a team-high seven touchdowns.
Gordon is the first player selected by the Browns in the Supplemental Draft since the team selected Bernie Kosar with the top pick in 1985.
