Browns’ Josh Gordon Will Not Request Trade

It can be hard thinking of many players who would want to stick around after a winless season, one that the Cleveland Browns are currently muddled in.

But, wide receiver Josh Gordon seems to want to stay put in Cleveland, despite the team’s losing.

Gordon said that he does not plan to ask for a trade this offseason and prefers to stick with the Browns.

“You can ask for a trade whenever you want to really, but that’s not really on my mind, man,” Gordon said, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.

“I’m just glad to be back.”

While Gordon’s career derailed due to suspensions and off the field issues, Gordon has had a nice return to the field in Cleveland, and new Browns’ general manager John Dorsey seems to want to keep the wide out around.

“Josh is a very, very, very talented football player,” Dorsey said recently.

“And it always helps to have talented guys on there. The one thing about Josh, what I’ve seen is and I’ve heard, he’s worked very hard to turn his personal life around. My Catholicism has taught me that, you know what, give every man a second chance in life. And as long as he’s committed to the Cleveland Browns, I’ll tell you that the Cleveland Browns are committed to him, to help him not only be a good football player but a good man off the field.”

Published

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles is encouraged about what he has seen from running back Leonard Fournette in the passing game, believing that he can have a big season in 2019.

After a rough 2018 season, that included heavy criticism, Leonard could use some positive reinforcement, and Foles, his new quarterback, is giving him just that.

“That’s a threat,” Foles said,according to Jaguars.com. “If you ask any defender, when a running back can go out of the backfield and not only run the ball and protect, but he can receive, that’s really tough on a defense.

“I’ve been blessed to play with a lot of great running backs in my career that have made me look good because what they can do and there is nothing better than throwing the ball to a running back and letting him miss a guy. That’s what I love about backs. If you can catch, you can do so many different things. You can have a lot of fun out there.”
