NFL News: Chudzinski says Browns are not shopping Josh Gordon

In his weekly press conference Cleveland Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said that the team is not shopping wide receiver Josh Gordon and have no plans to trade him.

Chudzinski was asked about Gordon in light of rumors and reports that surfaced from national media members after the weekend. The coach was asked about the timing of the rumors and whether these reported conversations had taken place recently or if they were from the beginning of the season. Coach declined to discuss rumors or speculation implying that the team is happy to have Josh Gordon and not interested at this point in making a move.

Josh Gordon has 18 receptions for 303 yards and two touchdowns on the season. He was suspended for the first two games of the season. The Browns are 3-0 since his return to the team.

    Good to see the front office knowing when to speak through the coach instead of addressing every Twitter rumor that hits the ozone.

    …. but if a GM wants to call, hey, they’ve all got Banner’s cell number. Only 20 shopping days left, folks. We won’t scoff at any serious offers. Tell me your offense wouldn’t look mighty sweet with an unstoppable deep threat.

    Keep telling yourself that Chud…

    I would be shocked if Gordon is a member of the Browns in 2014.

    We will look like clowns if he is traded this season. Right hand, meet left hand.

    T Rich trade makes sense. This would make none.

    Yeah and our offense won’t have a single playmaker… Most receivers are divas it’s the nature of the beast. Sure we could spend our 2nd round pick on a “nfl ready” high character player like robiskie but I’d rather take my chances with Gordon. I’m only 30 but it would be nice to have this rebuilding end before i die….

    I so wish Gordon’s issues were “diva” related. Those were the days …

    Hmm am I missing something here? Not trying to be a smartarse but as far as I know he smoked some pot in college and was prescribed something he wasn’t allowed to take that I’ve also been prescribed several times in my life. Really nothing to burn the house down for imo. We aren’t talking about a Pacman Jones type of problem child here are we? He’s not marrying your daughter he’s catching footballs.. Should we trade Haden as well since he took an addy? Lets ship off Phil Taylor too since he was kicked out of Penn State and arrested a few times in college. Greg Little has to go too he took money in college and was suspended for a year. We really should have gotten rid of Josh Cribbs much earlier too since he sold pot in college. I could go on and on… We suck, he has potential so what do we have to lose? Our only play maker that’s what.

    Yes, here’s what I think you are missing: let’s say a player is instructed that a condition for playing college football and playing in the NFL is not eating any sort of jello. But he likes jello and is caught eating it in college and is suspended from the team. Then he is counseled by a nutritionist and warned his apartment will be inspected and then he’s caught eating it again, leaving his college team in the lurch and forcing him to transfer schools, and he promises his new school he has no more interest in jello and they say ok, sit out a year and let us watch you eat, and he does it again right in front of them, so he flees there for NFL where he’s told about the new tougher jello suspensions but says “don’t worry, who needs jello? Spend a draft choice on me and I’ll show you” but …” etc.

    So, after jamming 2 colleges, one NFL team and facing long-term consequences, when we consider the value of the player is the immediate issue the benefits or detriments of jello? If other NFL teams thought so they’d be bidding first round picks for this first round-type talent. Cribbs, Haden, Taylor, Little, Sheard – did they eat jello more than once, never mind 5 times and place their career in jeopardy?
