Cleveland Browns: Star Players for 2014

Quarterback: Jason Campbell

Jason Campbell was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He has since played for the Oakland Raiders and Chicago Bears before signing a contract with the Cleveland Browns in March 2013. Even though he went in as a backup QB to Brandon Weeden, he started eight games of the season after Weeden was plagued by injury and poor form. In Week 9 Campbell snapped the Browns' eleven game losing streak to the Ravens, throwing for 262 yards and 3 scores on his way to AFC offensive player of the week honors.

Offensive Star: Josh Gordon

Josh Gordon was selected by the Cleveland Browns in the second round of the 2012 NFL Supplement Draft. He finished among the top rookies in the 2012 draft class with 50 catches, for 805 yards, and 5 touchdowns. In June 2013 it was announced Gordon would be suspended for the first two games of the 2013 season due to failing a drug test, yet he went on to play a very strong season. During week 12, he had 237 receiving yards and in week 13, 261 yards. It marked the first time in NFL history a wide receiver had consecutive 200-yards receiving games. In December Gordon was named PFWA Player of the Year following the season. He was also voted into his first Pro Bowl Selection. Gordon finished the 2013 season as the NFL's leader in receiving yards, with 1,646 yards and was named First-Team All-Pro. He is definitely one to lead the Browns to victory in the 2014 season.

Defensive Star: T.J. Ward

T.J. Ward was drafted in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Browns. He played college football in Oregon. Ward was drafted 38th overall in 2010, and started all 16 games of his rookie season. He recorded 123 combined tackles and 2 interceptions. Ward had a breakout season in 2013, starting all 16 games and earning Second-Team All-Pro honors from the Associated Press. He finished the year with 123 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 2 interceptions, 1 forced fumble, and 10 passes defended. He was second only to D'Qwell Jackson, but since he was traded to the Indianapolis Colts after the season ended, Ward is currently the Browns' star defense.

Head Coach: Mike Pettine

Mike Pettine was hired as head coach of the Cleveland Browns in January 2014. This will be his first head coaching gig, though it runs in his blood. His father was famous Pennsylvania high school football coach Mike Pettine Sr. who went 326-42-4 record in 33 seasons and won the AAAA state championship four times. Pettine was the former defensive coordinator of the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets. He will be hoping to beat Chudzinski's 2013 season record of 4-12 and prove himself.
