The report says that the contract is worth $5.3 million, including $3.8 million guaranteed. Gordon was selected in the second round of the Supplemental Draft last week, earlier than many analysts expected.
Gordon was kicked off Baylor after the 2010 season due to a failed drug test. He transferred to Utah, but decided to enter the Supplemental Draft instead of returning to college football. Browns GM Tom Heckert didn't have any questions about Gordon's character after the draft. From The Sideline View:
"It's something that we really did our homework on, there's no question about it. We brought the kid in and met with him here then I talked to a zillion guys at both Baylor and Utah. To be honest with you, I couldn't find anybody to say one bad thing about the kid,"
