Report: Browns very active in trade talks as Tuesday’s deadline approaches
The Browns have been among the most active clubs leading up Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline, according to Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports.
According to some who have been in contact with the Browns, they believe Cleveland would entertain offers for emerging tight end Jordan Cameron as well as wide receiver Josh Gordon, though it would take a steep haul of picks and/or players to acquire them.
LaCanfora notes that while there is an abundance of receivers available, there are a number of teams, including the Patriots, Lions, Ravens, Colts and 49ers, looking for another pass catcher.
They are determining where there is the best value and what it would take to land players like Hakeem Nicks, Josh Gordon and Kenny Britt — all recent high draft picks — while less-established options like Jon Baldwin and Greg Little are also available, league sources said.
The Browns made headlines earlier this season when they traded star running back Trent Richardson to Indianapolis. The Colts are now looking to replace their No. 1 wide receiver Reggie Wayne, who will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL.
Gordon, Little and Cameron could all benefit from working with a quarterback like Andrew Luck. But looking at the Richardson trade now, would the Colts be hesitant to deal with the Browns again? It’s still early, but it looks like the Browns clearly got the best of that trade.
Luckily for Joe Banner, the NFL has a ‘no refund’ policy.
