Teams Calling Browns About Trade For Josh Gordon

According to Adam Schefter, NFL teams are already calling the Browns about a potential trade for WR Josh Gordon.

  • In fact, league sources have told Schefter that the Browns are “far more likely to trade” Gordon than release him at this.
  • Schefter adds that Gordon is a vested vet and is not subject to waivers, which means he would immediately be an unrestricted free agent if released.
  • Regarding his hamstring injury, Schefter reports that Gordon hurt it at a promotional shoot, not at practice.
  • Ian Rapoport says that as many as five teams researching possibly trading for Gordon.

Reports have said that Gordon was late to the team’s facility on Saturday and there are concerns that he may have had a relapse.

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.

Are we sure he is a vested vet? According to OTC he only has two years accrued. Also, it takes 4 years to be an unrestricted free agent? Also, aren’t most players subject to waivers regardless when released mid season?

I’m not sure Schefters tweet is accurate?!
