Josh Gordon has gone through a lot of hard times while with the Cleveland Browns, and he’s not willing to part ways with the team any time soon.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, although many teams have contacted the Browns for the pass-catcher’s signature, a source in close contact with the team’s top management said that they aren't planning to trade Gordon any time soon.
Gordon will serve a 4-game suspension at the start of the new season before returning to full active play in Week 5 to face the Patriots. When contacted by our reporters, Gordon for his part said that he has no near-future ambitions of leaving Cleveland, adding that he’s looking forward to the upcoming football season with the team.
Although the 25-year old wide receiver hasn't participated in a single game since December 2014, he’s currently practicing with the Cleveland Browns. On Friday, he’s expected to make his pre-season debut against the Buccaneers.
While in Cleveland, Gordon has had a number of suspensions slapped on him, with the Browns coming out to reiterate their support and solidarity with him almost in all these instances.
As it turns out, the Browns can't really afford to part ways with any player who can help the team win games and prosper.
