    Default Josh Gordon

    Well, so long Browns. Next stop...?

    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/2...-browns-monday

    Serves me right. I just can't help myself but draft this guy every season thinking about what could be. Will be interesting to see what else, if anything, comes out about this in the next 24-48 hours and where he ends up.

    Interesting story in the link above. Gordon's had his problems for sure, but this whole thing again just demonstrates what a total disaster the Browns organization is. Hue Jackson blaming Gordon starting last week as a "mistake" or miscommunication" ... WTF? It was literally first offensive snap of the damn season! Hue didn't have that thing scripted and everyone (players, coaches, coordinators) on the same page for the first play of the season?? After saying publicly that Gordon wouldn't start?!?

    Apparently no league discipline on the horizon. Looks like the Browns move just reflective of them being fed and done with him generally.

    Just in case someone panic dropped Gordon in your league, he's worth a stash if you can. Hard to believe when this story first broke, but this actually could end up benefiting Gordon's value long-term despite the sure doughnut this week.

    Because it was a hamstring injury during a promo shoot not for the NFL or team, I kinda get the feeling the Patriots would not really be that interested.

    The way my Redskins offense ran yesterday, I'd want them to go after him in a trade. Smith, Reed, C.Thompson, and Gordon is a solid offense. The WR there are just not cutting it.

    As a fantasy owner, I'd be down for him to go to Washington. Would become the clear go-to guy on the outside, with solid options in the slot (Crowder) and TE (Reed, for now) and a serviceable if unspectacular backfield still requiring defensive attention, and a solid veteran QB getting him the ball.

    Also heard/read the Jets and Niners are in the mix. 49ers could be interesting, but I like the Jets less for Gordon from a fantasy perspective than the other options mentioned. But also noted elsewhere that the Browns would prefer to deal him outside of the AFC, so....

    Although I just noticed that the Jets are on the road in Week 3 playing in . . . CLEVELAND!

    No idea if Gordon would be ready to play on Thursday night if he's traded today (even assuming a fully healthy hamstring), but I have to admit that I'd love to watch the oddity of that spectacle if it were to unfold.

    I'd give it a 5% chance he plays if he's on the Jets. Right now, it's like a 1% chance.

    He may get 1 play in where it's like, Ok stand there for a screen pass or something.

    Pats apparently getting close to a deal for Gordon.

    Don't love the Ian Rappaport source, but that's what I got so far....

    I bet the Pats would make it work somehow and Gordon would at least become serviceable for them. They have that kind of effect on people.

    Reminds me of Eklund reporting on the NHL (I think that's who I regularly see forum members rail against). Frequently VERY wrong on the rumors he spreads. And his reporting often says nothing at all. And when he's been called out by front offices and colleagues, he's just kind of weaseled out and gone on to other gossip.

    Just think he's much more of a quantity than quality guy.

    Adam Schefter now reporting that Gordon to Pats agreed upon.

    https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter?ref...Ctwgr%5Eauthor

    Compensation being reported is interesting:

    Pats give up 5th round pick, BUT if Gordon is not active for 10 games, the Pats get a late round pick back. Some insurance for the Pats. But wonder if it also gives the Pats incentive to deactivate Gordon in a given week quicker than they ordinarily would.

    Pats cutting Corey Coleman to make room (sucks to be Corey -- seems like the second time this season that Gordon's presence was at least a factor in Coleman being shown the door).

    Anyhow, assuming it's a done deal, it will be interesting to see how this experiment plays out!

    New England just lovvvvvvvvvvvvvvves the reclamation projects. Or they just like value. I'm surprised no one else was willing to give a 5th rounder.
