ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns discussed trade for WR Josh Gordon.
Schefter adds that a trade is “unlikely” now that WR Mario Manningham will be coming off PUP list and Michael Crabtree is slated to return in mid-to-late November.
Ian Rapoport reports that the Browns are looking for a second-round pick in return for Gordon.
Reports have indicated that the Browns would be willing to discuss a trade for either Gordon or Greg Little, but weren’t actively shopping either player.
The 49ers have plenty of draft picks to work with in 2014, so it makes sense that they would look to move some of the picks in return for players who could provide immediate production. San Francisco has their first-round pick, two second-round picks (conditional pick based KC’s win total for the season) and three third-round selections to work with next season.
Getting Manningham and Crabtree back later in the season should help to improve their No. 31 ranked passing offense.
