The Cleveland Browns finally have star wide receiver Josh Gordon back as he will hit the field in Week 5 after a four-game suspension. However, there seems to be a number of teams inquiring about a possible trade for the four-year veteran receiver.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that multiple teams are interested in trading for Gordon, but the Browns are sticking firm in keeping the receiver this year and into the future.

Grossi: The #Browns are anxious to reap the benefits of Josh Gordon. They have gone through all the hardship. I don't see him being traded

The Browns certainly want to keep Josh Gordon around into the future as they believe he can make a big impact for them. In 2013, he won the NFL receiving title with 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns.
With a quarterback seemingly in place as Robert Griffin III takes over the job this year, the Browns believe they can start contending for a playoff spot in the very near future.
The Browns open the season on Sept. 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
