According to media reports, the troubled—yet talented—Cleveland Browns wide receiver, Josh Gordon could be on his way to the NFC champion San Francisco 49ers.
Gordon, who recently returned from a two-game suspension for testing positive for codeine, is rumored to be the focal point of talks between Cleveland and San Francisco. Rumors are that Cleveland is asking for a 2014 second-round pick in exchange for the former Baylor/Utah standout.
Since his return from suspension, the Browns offense—coupled with the play of Brian Hoyer, jumpstarted an otherwise dull offense to three straight wins. In his three games back, Gordon has 18 catches for 303 yards, two touchdowns and a yards per catch average of 16.8
With San Francisco set to get wide receivers Mario Manningham and Michael Crabtree back soon, and the asking price of the Browns, it would be wise to treat this as mere speculation.
