Talent hasn’t even been a question for Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon.

With enough natural ability to be potentially a top ten wide receiver in the NFL, Gordon is an attractive piece to find on the trade market – but 0f course – there’s a reason such a talented product is allegedly available for trade.

Off field problems.

That hasn’t stopped at one team, who according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter has made an ‘attractive’ offer for Gordon, but he does say teams are ‘aware and leery’ of the talented though problematic offensive weapon:

At least one team — and I don’t know which one it is — has made an attractive offer for Gordon. A deal for him might not be far off, though if Cleveland were willing to take what was on the table, it would have already done so. The problem with Gordon is not his talent; rather, it’s that he is in the NFL’s program, already having served a two-game suspension this season. He’s a strike away from a lengthy NFL suspension, and teams around the league are both aware and leery.
