Cleveland (WOIO) - The Josh Gordon trade rumors won't go away. In fact, they continue to heat up. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Monday that the Browns have had preliminary talks with the San Francisco 49'ers about trading their top receiver, and Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported that the Browns are looking for a second-round draft pick in return.
Gordon has been spectacular since returning from a two-game suspension to start the season, racking up 303 yards and two touchdowns, as the Browns rattled off three straight wins.
The Browns are concerned with the off-field issues that have surrounded Gordon in the past. Gordon is down to his final strike with the league. If he fails another drug test, he'd be suspended for a full season.
