The Cleveland Browns apparently came close to dealing wide receiver Josh Gordon before Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline.
Gordon followed the rumors throughout the day and even explained that his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, thought he may very well be traded at any point in the day.
However, in the end, the Browns decided to hang on to Gordon.
Gordon seems pleased that he will remain with the Browns.
“Definitely relieved,” Gordon told Pat McManamon of ESPN.com. “I wanted to stay here. I didn’t feel like uprooting myself and moving and starting all over again.”
Gordon, a former Baylor Bear, who was taken in the supplemental draft, is having a fantastic second season. The 6’3, 225 lb. deep threat has 32 receptions for 582 yards and three touchdowns.
Gordon isn’t the only one who’s happy he’s still in Cleveland.
“I’m excited Josh is part of our team,” Brown head coach Rod Chudzinski said. “He’s here. I like the progress he’s made as a player and the strides that he’s made and [I'm] looking forward to continued improvement on his part.
The Browns will host the Baltimore Ravens at 4:25 pm EST Sunday.
