Hue Jackson is charged with turning around the Cleveland Browns, and these five players should benefit the most from his hire.
Hue Jackson has been tapped as the latest savior of the Cleveland Browns, and these five players should benefit the most.
Josh Gordon is a talented individual who has trouble staying eligible. If the Baylor product can stay on the field, look out, because the sky’s the limit.
Browns fans need to look no further than the 2013 season, when Gordon turned in the most prolific receiving seasons in Browns’ history.
With Jackson’s hire, Browns fans just need to peek down I-71 to Cincinnati to see what Jackson can do with a big, physical receiver capable of hawking the ball out the air.
For the past two seasons, Johnson’s called plays with A.J. Green as his No. 1 wide out. Green averaged 15.1 yards per catch the last two seasons, while hauling in 16 touchdowns with Jackson dialing up plays.
Green isn’t the only receiver to benefit from Jackson’s tutelage. During his first stint in Cincinnati, Jackson coached up Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh. During the 2006 season, these receivers became the first pair to gain 1,000 yards in Bengals’ single-season history.
Jackson has a reputation for being a “players coach.” This should help him build a relationship with Gordon that should help on the field.
