Gordon will make $790,000 next season, a huge difference from the $15.9 million new signee Jarvis Landry will make when he officially is signed by the Browns on Wednesday, the beginning of the new league year.
Reinstated for the last five games of the regular season last year, Gordon caught 18 passes for 335 yards and a touchdown in that time. He had been serving an indefinite suspension since 2014 for repeated violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy.
On top of the expectation that Gordon will play a full season without getting into trouble and the addition of Landry, the Browns, 0-16 in 2017, acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor in an attempt to turn around the team's string of losing seasons.
