The return says a lot about what the league thinks of Gordon
Albert Breer of The MMQB noted based on the return that the Browns “couldn’t find much of a market” for Gordon, which is a strong indication teams have lost all hope that he can become something special.
It’s important to keep in mind that while Gordon was once a first-team All-Pro, that was way back in 2013. In the four-plus seasons that have since transpired, the 6’3″, 225-pounder has caught just 43 of 92 targets and scored just two touchdowns.
The Browns and Patriots love to make deals with each other
The two franchises have done a lot of business together in recent years.
The Pats acquired both Danny Shelton and Jason McCourty from the Browns in two separate deals in March, they sent veteran linebacker Jamie Collins to Cleveland in exchange for a third-round pick in 2016, they picked up Barkevious Mingo from the Browns the previous offseason, and the two sides made a big draft trade in 2015.
ESPN.com’s Bill Barnwell tweeted that “Belichick could convince Cleveland to trade him Lucy for Charlie Brown,” but the jury is still out on most of those deals.
