With Josh Gordon suspended for the first 10 weeks of this NFL season, the Browns wide receiver is using the time off to work as a car salesman at a local dealership in Cleveland. Unfortunately, he appears to be much better at catching footballs than selling automobiles.
Alas, Alex Sarchione said Josh Gordon has not yet sold his 1st car. But he’s coming in early, staying late, committed to learning the trade

Ouch, not a single sale in over a few weeks on the job? You’d think there’d be some people in Cleveland who would jump at the chance to buy a car from a local superstar athlete. Like, I’m pretty sure LeBron could sell the dealership’s entire inventory in a week without even trying.
Fortunately for Gordon, selling cars isn’t the only part of his new job. He’s also heading all of their local community efforts including with the Wounded Warriors Project. Hopefully that’s going a little better for him.
