While looking over Mike Holmgen's reaction to the T-Rich trade, like the autistic child character in Mercury Rising could sniff out codes and patterns, my mind zeroed in on one particular part of the article:
According to The Plain Dealer, Banner and general manager Mike Lombardi wouldn't have drafted Josh Gordon with a supplemental pick in 2012. That decision wiped away Cleveland's second-round choice in this year's draft.
I wonder if Lombardi and Banner would be willing to part with Josh Gordon for a price. I mean, they are rebuilding and all, and are probably not enamored with Gordon's off-field antics. The question with Gordon has never been about his ability. He put up more than 800 yards and 5 TDs after effectively being out of football for two years. In short, he really has the potential to be a real beast in this league. A real beast of Johnson, Bryant, Green and Jones proportions. Thinking outside the box, what would you think about making a move for Flash Gordon? What's he worth now that he has pretty much proven that he is a big play NFL receiver?
