Gordon gets no love in Pro Bowl fan vote

12/4/2013

Josh Gordon may be setting Cleveland Browns records, but the fans have barely noticed.

Early Pro Bowl voting results released Wednesday show Gordon is not even among the Top 10 receivers. Calvin Johnson of Detroit leads, followed by A.J. Green (Cincinnati), Dez Bryant (Dallas), Demaryius Thomas (Denver), Wes Welker (Denver), Brandon Marshall (Chicago), DeSean Jackson (Philadelphia), Jordy Nelson (Green Bay), Andre Johnson (Houston) and Eric Decker (Denver).

Gordon is eligible for the Pro Bowl even with his two-game suspension because he was not disciplined for using performance enhancing drugs.

The highest ranked Brown by position is at fullback, where Chris Ogbonnaya is second (go figure).

Jordan Cameron ranks fourth among tight ends, Joe Thomas third among tackles, T.J. Ward seventh among strong safeties, and Joe Haden is ninth among cornerbacks.

Fan balloting counts for one-third of the vote, with votes from coaches and players accounting for the other two-thirds.

The NFL also is not dividing Pro Bowlers by conference. Instead, the top players are thrown in a pool with Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice conducting a “fantasy draft” of two teams.
