The Cleveland Browns are apparently still not sold on wide receiver Josh Gordon as a player they want to continue to build around, and may keep looking to unload him for a good deal if someone comes in and blows them away with a trade offer. It’s no surprise the receiver-needy San Francisco 49ers could be one of those teams:

As Schefter pointed out, because the 49ers do have Manningham and Crabtree returning at some point this year, they probably won’t offer Cleveland a deal they view as fair value.

Look for the Browns to hang on to Gordon leading up to the NFL trade deadline, and depending on their ability to keep up their newfound winning ways may determine their willingness to unload Gordon.

The 6’3″, 225 pound wide receiver has the size to match up with some of the NFL’s larger corners, but also possesses the speed to beat defenses over the top. He averaged 16.1 yards per reception as a rookie in 2012, and looks like a potential star if he can stay out of trouble and keep his head on straight.
