Browns Unlikely To Trade Josh Gordon

The Browns are “highly unlikely” to trade wide receiver Josh Gordon before Tuesday’s deadline, a source tells Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. Cleveland is said to be open to moving Gordon — and were reportedly shopping him earlier this month — but apparently the odds of a deal coming together are not good.Josh Gordon

Gordon, who was released from rehab earlier today, originally decided to enter the facility following a “slip up,”and reports indicated that Gordon was dealing with an alcohol addiction. Some of Gordon’s past suspensions have been related to alcohol, and the pass-catcher also has a DUI on his rap sheet, so he decided entering rehab was the “extra step” he needed to get well.

Rival clubs were reportedly inquiring on Gordon over the summer, but the Browns indicated that they had no interest in trading their talented yet troubled wide receiver. However, former Patriots/Browns executive Michael Lombardi disputed that sentiment, claiming that Cleveland had been shopping Gordon all summer.

The Browns have indicated that they intend to part ways with Gordon at some point, although he won’t be an unrestricted for some time given his multiple suspensions.

    Browns should trade JT, Haden, and Gordon. Let the young guys continue to soak up playing time and stockpile draft picks

    The Steelers need to try to get Gordon. An offense next year of Brown, Bell, Bryant, Gordon, and Ben would be unstoppable.

      Except for when Bryant, Gordon, and Bell get their annual suspensions.

        Exactly

        And Ben gets hurt

      Lol which WR would they cut to make room? I think Wheaton will be a FA and is their worst. So his spot will be open, but Bryant will be back. So the Steelers will have AB

        I forgot they also have Ledarius Green who might come back. Holy crap. As long as they score more than that soft D gives up…
