You guys are nuts. Gordon is all-pro. Every team in the NFL would trade their first for him. He lead the league in receiving in only 14 games. We would be so god damn lucky if they traded him to us - but they obviously wouldn't.
We wouldn't need to resign Boldin, we'd save 4 or 5mil, and would have a top 3 NFL receiver under contract for two years who would immediately be our #1.
if this were true he would have been traded already. either they werent serious about dealing him, wanted way too much for him, or he really wasnt as available as everyone think he is/was.
Reading this again, I'm not sure if you're agreeing with me or what? They obviously wouldn't trade him for only a first.
His value has skyrocketed since there were "trade talks" about Josh Gordon. He just had an all-pro year and lead the league in yardage. He put up 1,646 yards and 9 TD's in only 14 games! 150 more yards Antonio Brown and Calvin (#2 and #3) and he had NOBODIES throwing him the ball. On top of that, he stayed out of trouble all year and has been a model kid from the outside. I thought he was a top-notch player but nobody thought he would be this great in only year #2 in the NFL.
The only knock on him has ever been him for smoking pot which if you read the recent news by Kluwe and Nate Jackson, is pretty common in the league. He's a franchise player at this point with two years left on his contract getting paid nothing! You don't trade him unless you can't afford him or somebody's willing to break the bank for you.
