  1. Sounds like the Browns' management knows exactly what they're doing.
  2. The larger point: Most NFL players come from tough backgrounds. A lot of these guys have demons. When I say demons, it can be a huge range of things. Some can handle them and overcome, some can't. At the end of the day, NFL teams have shown that they will give uber talented players multiple chances. The Browns stood by Gordon for a long time, but with a new GM in place, he wants to put his stamp on it. Rightfully so. The cost of putting his stamp on it is getting rid of players like Gordon and even Corey Coleman. Either way, Dorsey better hope that 'his guys' are better than what he has gotten rid of. It sounds like Gordon will have another chance with another team. It's up to him what he does with that chance.
  3. Yeah, I agree with this. I'll do some mind reading of my own and assume Dorsey was waiting for the slightest 'slip up' before getting rid of him. Dorsey killed his own trade leverage tho by saying they were going to release him on Monday.
  4. After passing on Moss, Jerry has had a soft spot for troubled WRs. You may be onto something...
  5. Article lists Dallas, Arizona, and Jacksonville as possible destinations. From a fantasy perspective, Dallas is the best spot. However, going back to Texas may not be ideal unless the Cowboys have a solid, specific support system ready for him.
  6. For all we know, he could have gotten injured shooting a promotional video for Thursday Night Football. Who knows at this point. Monitor 'actions' and avoid the 'noise.
  7. I'm sorry for you had to go through that and hope all is well now. Equating different situations to Gordon's is a textbook definition of "confirmation bias". You see similar things and automatically assume that they're the same. No one has any idea what Josh is going through. Maybe he moved past his demons, maybe he hasn't. In situations like this, you look purely at 'actions'. Schefter says others teams are interested in trading for him. To me, that means others are confident in giving him a shot. Maybe he'll turn into an All-Pro that wel all want him to be---maybe he won't. But by calling him a 'junkie' at this stage just isn't productive because we just don't know.
  8. Sure, the "Browns" have stuck with Josh Gordon. However, they have new leadership in place that has prioritized "getting their guys" in place. "Getting their guys" has been proven by getting rid of players from the Sashi regime. To me, it seems like Dorsey was waiting for the first 'slip up' to justify getting rid of him. Clearly, other teams value Gordon's abilities. A change of scenery may be good for all.
  9. My friend, with all due respect, you are "mind reading" by calling him a junkie. Maybe he moved beyond his demons, maybe he hasn't. However, the Schefter tweets indicate team still believe in the player and wouldn't trade for a 'junkie'.
  10. Gotta wonder what the asking price is. 5th rounder? 6th rounder? 7th?
  11. Assuming Gordon's issue is ONLY a hamstring tweak, this is a boost for his fantasy value. Expect him to be more motivated, he'll likely have a better QB (Dallas? New England? Green Bay? Carolina?), and most importantly, a better support system. Let's hope he doesn't go to Washington state for obvious reasons....
  12. I mean, Browns gonna Brown, right? If anything, Gordon should be even MORE focused now.
  13. Adam Schefter‏Verified account @AdamSchefter 6m6 minutes ago More Josh Gordon hurt his hamstring at a promotional shoot, not at practice, per source.
  14. Haven't seen 'Demarious Thomas' on my waiver wire....
