Found October 28, 2013 on Waiting For Next Year:
While Josh Gordon has been the hot name in the NFL rumor mill, many in the league who have been in contact with the Cleveland Browns believe the team would also entertain breakout tight end Jordan Cameron. In discussing potential targets for fringe contenders like the Indianapolis Colts and Detroit Lions, CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reports that the Browns have not only been among the most active teams as the league nears Tuesday’s trade deadline, but that the Browns continue to be on the prowl for additional draft picks. “According to some who have been in contact with the Browns, they believe Cleveland would entertain offers for emerging tight end Jordan Cameron as well as Gordon, though it would take a steep haul of picks and/or players to acquire them,” writes La Canfora. Gordon is a young, dynamic play-maker who also happens to be one failed drug test away from a one-year suspension. Cameron, in his third season with the team, is on pace for roughly 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. Neither player was drafted by the current Browns regime and are at what could be considered “high value” in the event they were viewed as commodities. Given the current quarterback issues for the Browns, the team is understandably geared toward finding a franchise player in the 2014 NFL Draft. They are already armed with two first-round selections (their own and one acquired earlier this season from the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for running back Trent Richardson). Team CEO Joe Banner stated that the team had no intentions of trading Gordon, but was non-committal last week when (once again) confronted with the question. “If you’re in this long enough, you learn to never say anything absolute, because then something comes up and you look like you lied,” Banner said. “I personally — and I think anybody here — would be completely shocked if we ended up trading him. Josh is playing great. He’s working his butt off.” To this point, there has been no formal word with regard to the Cameron-based report by La Canfora.

  • The Browns continually create unrest and instability within the organization e.g. trade rumors Gordon and most recently with Cameron. You can't be successful when you are constantly giving up experienced good players with unproven rookies. It takes time to build chemistry and the Browns never give it a chance to happen. Instead they keep tearing it down and call it rebuilding. This organization will never be successful with that business model.
  • Trading either player is just nuts unless you get a king's ransom in return. That is not likely. We already mortgaged away or running game now we are going to trade the best TE we have had in years?. I don't know what these Morons are thinking. When we do finally get a QB then he won't have any weapons to be successful. With all the offensive problems we have that is the last thing we should do.
  • Why does Cleveland consistently want to trade their best players? Extremely poor management policy. Just think probably several of them chose Weeden as QB. Just watch him for 5 minutes and you could see he had no natural instincts. How can you ever build a team and gain consistency while you are rebuilding. They should give Chud the authority to make personnel changes. I guess I am just getting too old for this non-sense. All of our sports teams make it difficult to get close to and build a bond. Extremely frustrated.
