ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Monday that at least three teams have contacted the Browns about a Gordon trade. Two of those teams have standing offers of a high draft pick and a player.

Teams have been reluctant to surrender what’s thought to be an asking price of a second-round NFL Draft pick, and that’s lead to rumors and speculation over the past month that has Gordon frustrated and tired of it all.

“I honestly wish if it was going to happen it would have happened already. Instead of dragging on. If a trade offer came in and that’s what they wanted to do, so be it. If not then just let it be known that this is where I’m gonna be. Honestly, it’s part of the game and I’m dealing with it.”

“It’d be pretty naive of me to not think it’s possible,” Gordon said. “This is the business of the NFL. It could happen any minute, any day. If it does, it does. If it doesn’t I’m glad to be here.”

 

With the NFL trading deadline being next Tuesday, it will all be over soon for Gordon, and the talented receiver can go back to playing the game he loves without fear of being shipped to another city.

Gordon was taken by the Browns in the second round of the 2012 Supplemental Draft, and has 27 receptions for 450 yards and two touchdowns this season.
