The NFL trading deadline is 12 days away – Oct. 29. It can’t get here soon enough for those of us sweating out a Browns trade of Josh Gordon. Since the Browns traded Trent Richardson a month ago Gordon has been rumored to be dealt to just about any contending team in need of a 6-3 225-pound receiver who runs a sub-4.5 40. And which team in this pass-happy era doesn’t need an elite receiver? Despite denials from Browns coach Rob Chudzinski and CEO Joe Banner that the Browns “are not shopping” Gordon and don’t have “any plan or intention” to trade Gordon the rumors or expectations of a trade haven’t slowed. Last week Peter King the highly respected football insider conjured a list of “four trades I want to see” in one of his columns in themmqb.com. King acknowledged “I realize only No. 1 has a chance.” No. 1 on his list was Gordon to San Francisco for the 49ers’ second-round draft pick in 2014. Over at NFL.com Gil Brandt the highly respected former Dallas Cowboys personnel guru on Wednesday compiled his own list of trades “that should be made.” He suggested the Browns trade Gordon to the New York Jets for their second-round draft pick in 2014. Brandt wrote: “Though the team has insisted Gordon is not on the block if the Cleveland Browns who are trying to stockpile draft choices could get a second-round pick back I think they'd be happy to trade him.”
