Bob Saunders enters his fourth season with the Browns and his third as offensive quality control/assistant wide receivers coach. Saunders has coached in the NFL for 10 seasons.
Last season, the Browns had three receivers record multiple touchdowns receptions, including Josh Gordon, who returned to the field after missing the previous 44 consecutive games. In five games, Gordon recorded 18 receptions for 335 yards and one touchdown.
In 2016, Saunders helped Terrelle Pryor Sr. make a successful transition from quarterback to wide receiver. In his first season at the position, Pryor led the team in receptions (77), receiving yards (1,007) and receiving touchdowns (four). His reception total was the fourth-most by a Browns wide receiver and his yardage total was seventh-most by a Browns wide receiver. He also helped develop 2016 first-round pick Corey Coleman, who was named NFL Rookie of the Week after a 104-yard, two touchdown performance in Week 2.
