Josh Gordon’s impending back tattoo is impressive, huge


Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon recently shared a few updates of a tattoo which was being inked on his back and shoulder area. As it turns out it literally is back and shoulder as the Pro Bowl wide receiver is getting the whitespace between his last name and No. 12 filled in across his entire back.


Gordon has had most of the name-and-number outline for quite some time, but the filling and ancillary items are a work in progress. It’s worth mentioning that Gordon was not No. 12 in Cleveland until this past season where he was finally able to obtain the number he had when he was a member of the Baylor Bears. It’s also worth mentioning that the No. 12 is retired in Buffalo (Jim Kelly), New York (Joe Namath), San Francisco (John Brodie) and Miami (Bob Griese). And yes, that is a Koi.
