Getting value for Gordon will be difficult

Right now, an hour before the Browns play at Kansas City and the last weekend of games before the NFL’s annual trade deadline begins, I don’t think the Browns will trade Josh Gordon.

I don’t know. No one knows.

The rumor mill is churning. We don’t know who’s keeping it going, but deadlines spur both action and speculation. And just about anybody in any front office leaguewide — with a variety of different motivations — can plant and/or feed a new rumor at just about anytime.
