BROWNS SELECT GORDON VIA SUPPLEMENTAL DRAFT

From Elias: The Browns selected wide receiver Josh Gordon in the NFL's supplemental draft on Thursday. Gordon is the first wide receiver taken in the supplemental draft since the Jets selected Rob Moore from Syracuse in 1990. Moore went on to make 628 catches in his 10 NFL seasons, the sixth-highest total during that decade.

The Browns have had 639 catches by wide receivers over the last five seasons, the second-logest total in the NFL, ahead of only the Raiders (588).

ENCARNACION GETS EXTENSION

From Elias: The Blue Jays signed Edwin Encarnacion to a contract extension today in the midst of his career year. Encarnacion has hit 23 home runs this season, six more than he had all last year (17). Only two other players who hit 15 or more home runs last season have already passed their 2011 total: Josh Hamilton (27, after 25 in 2011) and Jarrod Saltalamacchia (17, 16 last season).
