Calgary Stampeders hold Josh Gordon's CFL rights

Rumors began to circulate on Thursday morning that Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has expressed interest in making a trip north of the border to play in the Canadian Football League (CFL).

Of course, Gordon will face several hurdles if he wants to play in the CFL, but if a miracle occurs and he is somehow granted permission to play then he already has a suitor.

According to Pro Football Talk, the Calgary Stampeders hold the CFL rights to Josh Gordon and they “badly want to sign him.”

It is just going to come down to what loopholes the Stampeders are able to find and whether or not Gordon is interested in playing enough in 2014 to warrant a temporary move to Calgary.

Everything could all come down to the Browns granting Gordon permission to play.

There is a chance that they could, but allowing their best offensive player to compete in the CFL where he would risk injury may not be a risk they are willing to take.
