Since the return of wide receiver Josh Gordon to the Browns after serving a 2 game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, the Cleveland Browns have won 3 games in a row.
Now with all the talk about the Browns trading Gordon to the San Fransisco 49ers, the fans have reason to be concerned. Just weeks ago the team traded the 3rd overall pick in the 2012 draft and fans thought the team was throwing in the towel on the season.
Fans cried like babies and couldn’t understand why the team would trade their favorite RB. After watching the way he performs with his new team, those same fans can see, the guy wasn’t that talented.
This isn’t the case with Josh Gordon. He cost the Browns a second round pick in the 2013 draft and team CEO Joe Banner has always resented the fact the team didn’t have a second round pick this season.
He issued verbal warnings before the season started saying, Gordon had this season to prove to the team, he was worth the second round pick. Gordon hasn’t been the offensive hero this season with the use of Jordan Cameron who leads the team with touchdown grabs, but he has certainly performed well.
He is quickly becoming the threat the Browns needed in the wide receiver position. He hasn’t been as sure handed as he was in 2012, but he could be showing some signs of rust due to the 2 game suspension.
He is still a threat nonetheless. If the team does trade Gordon it would certainly send Browns fans into a frenzy. The fans would do more than just whine, their could be reason to believe some fans would consider jumping off the main avenue bridge.
It is s good thing these are just rumors about a trade of Josh Gordon. The team seems like they want to win football games this season. Unless they are throwing in the towel thinking they can’t win with Weeden at QB, they shouldn’t trade Josh Gordon.
This would be good news to the fans if they do decide to keep the receiver.
