Hue Jackson will rip open his biggest Christmas present this week in Josh Gordon, put the batteries in, flip the 'on' switch and let 'er rip in his debut Sunday against the Chargers in Los Angeles.

"My plans for him? Oh boy, let me tell you, I have big plans for him,'' Jackson said Monday. "I plan for him to play and play as much as he can handle. He's a very talented player. He needs to get out there and play but we have to see where he is and make sure how much can he handle, how much can he do."

Gordon was eligible to come off the Commissioner's Exempt list Monday, but the Browns will likely wait until at least Friday when they leave for Los Angeles. They can delay the decision until next Monday, but they have no plans of doing that.

The Browns are 0-11 and need all the help they can get to avoid becoming the second member of the exclusive 0-16 club. So when a 6-3, 225-pound Pro Bowl receiver who led the NFL with 1,646 yards in 2013 drops in your lap, you accept the gift and use it right away.

Especially when your 2016 No. 15 overall pick in Corey Coleman drops a touchdown pass in the end zone in Cincinnati.
