    Far cry to compare Gordon to one of the best WR of all time

    With Josh Gordon's troubled tenure with the Cleveland Browns coming to an end, the talented wide receiver has two places where he hopes to land if he is traded, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter: the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys.
    The team announced Saturday night that it intends to release the former Pro Bowl wide receiver on Monday. Multiple league sources told Schefter on Saturday that they believe Cleveland will trade Gordon before Monday, adding that teams already are calling the Browns. A source told Schefter on Sunday that the Browns prefer to trade Gordon out of the AFC.
    Gordon is a vested veteran and is not subject to waivers. If he is cut by the Browns, he will become a free agent. If another team trades for Gordon, he will play this season for his minimum salary and can be tendered after the season.

    and he appeared to be a model citizen for a few years, never a problem around the team or in the clubhouse and very productive on the field

    friends from town who knew him since he was hanging in HS with their son loved him

    who knew he was a mass murderer who was also afraid to come out of the closet, that was weird, that was something nobody could possibly expect

    they've signed a bunch of bad boys that shut up and played

He will potentially be the best WR they have had since Moss and all they gave up was a 5th round pick who would be 50/50 at best to make the team. This could be a bad day for the Patriot haters.

    Big "could be" though. This kid really seems to have a screw loose. We'll see.

    A quick recap of Gordonís past two outings: Heís caught all eight targets for 128 yards and a touchdown. The lone score was a 24-yard hookup against the Vikings, as Gordon broke his route to the inside and found a vacancy in Minnesotaís zone coverage. Earlier in the drive, Gordon easily shed the tackle of Vikings cornerback Marcus Sherels, turning a short hitch route into a 24-yard gain.
    And on the next series, Gordon drew a 20-yard pass interference penalty, then nearly scored on a quick-hitting throw to the perimeter. Brady fired the ball to Gordon immediately after the snap, giving the 230-pound Gordon a chance to go one-on-one with Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes at the Minnesota 10-yard line. Unsurprisingly, Rhodes needed reinforcements.
    Gordon stepped through Rhodesí tackle, spun away from linebacker Ben Gedeon, and finally was dragged down at the 2-yard line by safety Anthony Harris.
    He popped to his feet and signaled for a first down.
    There was much of the same two weeks ago against the Jets, when Gordon dove to secure the ball for a 17-yard gain on a third-and-10 comeback route along the sideline.
    Six of his eight receptions in Weeks 13 and 14 generated first downs. One other, a 16-yard gain on a deep comeback versus New York, rescued the Patriots on a first-and-18.
    The reason for Gordonís extreme efficiency of late? Perhaps itís somewhat related to his health.
    Gordon was nursing a hamstring injury when he arrived via trade from Cleveland, but heís been in top condition for weeks.
