Browns receiver Josh Gordon will be a restricted free agent in 2017, according to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio. There were rumors this week that teams had called Cleveland to see if he was available via trade. Gordon told ESPN, he hopes he remains a Brown.
“Cleveland is my team. That’s where I want to be,” Gordon told ESPN.com. “(Browns owner Jimmy) Haslam, the organization, coach (Hue) Jackson, I think the world of those guys, this city, this organization. They’re showing me the love and respect back to me by allowing me to stay here up to this point.
“I expect to move forward with that. I’m excited about it. This is where I want to be and I’m happy to be with Cleveland.”
By the sounds of it, Gordon may not be a Brown too much longer anyway.
