Browns Expected To Trade Josh Gordon Today, 8-10 Teams Have Inquired

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Browns are expected to trade WR Josh Gordon Monda before 4 pm EST and there’s a “legitimate” market for his services.

Rapoport explains that Gordon’s low salary and team control for two years could lead to a team parting with a conditional draft pick. Interestingly enough, Rapoport believes the Browns should be able to get “substantial” compensation for Gordon.

Gordon’s hamstring injury is being evaluated right now to determine how much time he’ll miss.

Meanwhile, Josina Anderson reports that at least “8 to 10 teams have called” the Browns and inquired about Gordon. According to Anderson, some teams have been adamant about not wanting it known that their organization has reached out about Gordon.

We know that the 49ers and Jets have both done their due diligence on Gordon and while he would like to play for the Cowboys, reports from last night downplayed the possibility.

Gordon, 27, is a former second-round supplemental pick of the Browns back in 2012. Suspensions forced Gordon to sit out the 2015 and 2016 seasons but he was reinstated in November of last year and finished out the seasons with the Browns.

The Browns re-signed Gordon to a one-year exclusive rights contract worth $790,000. Gordon was in line to be a restricted free agent in 2019.

In 2018, Gordon has appeared in one game and caught one pass for 17 yards and a touchdown.

We’ll have more regarding Gordon as the news is available.
