By Earl Bennett After being released I found myself in Cleveland. A city with similar die hard fans like Chicago, thirsting for a Super Bowl. I joined a receiver corps that was led by Josh Gordon, who was by far the best athletic specimen I had seen in my life. Gordon’s skills on the field were obvious, but a conversation with him shed light on a turbulent career.

By Earl Bennett In 2012, we needed to win the season’s final game, and we needed the Packers to defeat the Vikings to get into the playoffs. The latter did not happen so we were eliminated from playoff contention. After landing back in Chicago and finding out the results, Coach Lovie Smith addressed the team and stated we would have exit physicals in the morning. I arrived at the facility in the morning and entered the cafeteria where most players were gathered. I ordered my usual pancakes and bacon and found myself a table. ESPN lit up every TV. So, when a player says, “I don’t listen to the media,” …
