It’s also the ultimate “Yes and No” question.
No, the Browns wouldn’t trade Josh Gordon. They are in first place. It would be crazy to dump your best receiver when you’re on top of the division (okay, tied with the Bengals and Ravens).
Yes, the Browns would trade Josh Gordon. They traded their best running back, Trent Richardson, three weeks ago!
The Richardson trade reminds every Browns fan that Gordon could vanish in the blink of an eye. But how will we know?
Compare this situation to baseball. Even though the season is only five weeks old, it’s like we are in July, because the trade deadline is coming up at the end of the month.
If the Browns win two or three of their next three games, they should be in the playoff race all the way. That means they almost certainly won’t trade Gordon.
However, if the Browns lose two or three of their next three games and Gordon continues to play well, his trade value will skyrocket and the Browns could add yet another first- or second-round pick to their stockpile.
Why would the Browns even think about trading Josh Gordon? Two reasons.
First, if Gordon picks up a third strike in the substance abuse program, he could be suspended for a year. Second, the Joe Banner-Mike Lombardi regime has no respect for the choices of their predecessors.
If Gordon is dealt away for more draft power, Banner and Lombardi will send a clear message: “We wouldn’t have drafted the guy in the first place.”
