"Multiple teams have reached out to the Browns to inquire about the availability of WR Josh Gordon, per league sources", Schefter writes.
There has also been reports that the Philadelphia Eagles is another team that might be interested in Gordon as it needs a 1,000-yard receiver. But a middling draft pick isn't worth the possibility of Gordon reviving his career.
"I really can't comment on that". That's where I want to be, everything like that.
He told ESPN: "Cleveland is my team. I'm not sure how that works", he said. "After four mulligans already, it most likely would spell the end for him". "I haven't heard too much about it", the receiver said. Haslam, the organization, coach (Hue) Jackson, I think the world of those guys, this city, this organization. "What I was most excited about was how they fought". That's where I want to be, everything like that.
Gordon has faced suspension after suspension but despite this, the Browns are keeping him, perhaps because of the team's faith in him and he aims to repay them with loyalty.
Gordon cannot be trusted.
Sell high (sort of).
Gordon is also surrounded by an old friend in former Baylor teammate Robert Griffin III, who was signed this offseason to reestablish himself as a starting quarterback. The second-round draft pick missed an extra point at Philadelphia two weeks ago, then failed to convert a pair of field goals against Jacksonville. Imagine putting him on the field in three- or four-receiver sets, with teams' lesser defensive backs being forced to guard him.
When Gordon was last on the field, he was one of the NFL's best players.
Brown said that a recent report stating that Cleveland was willing to listen to offers "is probably a mischaracterization".
You're all in anyway. The Browns have different management and plenty of bad has transpired surrounding Gordon since that time, but that gives you an idea of what it would take to land Gordon in a deal. Why would the Browns sell low on Gordon, knowing what he is capable of doing for them? "They have to get their hands on the ball".
There is more news that is not so good for Gordon.
Cromartie is your classic "gambler" at cornerback, as he will sit on routes and try to intercept passes. That's a big gap and one that is unlikely to narrow in the near future. Both the Bucs and Browns expect their starters to play into the second half, so both players will play a significant number of reps.
Colts head coach Chuck Pagano was asked about the status of his secondary and he was brutally honest.
"No. you can't look at it that way", Griffin said. Of course, the proof will be in the pudding, and he is unlikely to even start this year. He was suspended all of last season. The team now holds 10 in next year's draft. Gordon has been reinstated by the National Football League and will start the season with a four-game suspension.
If Gordon can avoid trouble and injury following his suspension he could play a crucial role for the Browns. "Only they would know this".
