Would you trade....

We all need to chill. The 49ers are not falling over themselves to get Gordon. Would it make sense long term? Yes it would but it doesn't mean they'll do it.

We would be foolish not to throw in a player *cough* LaMichael *cough* and a day 2 pick in an offer just to test the waters. Baalke's is all about salary cap and a risk/reward ratio. Boldin may be re-signable but AB, you need to read your own line again. He'll cost $5 million+ per year for probably a 2-3 year deal. If they could get Gordon and his 3rd round pick rookie contract with 2 years remaining you know Baalke would pick Gordon over many other players. The question is this, is he worth his potential off-field trouble?

The real question also isn't really should we have Gordon versus Boldin but this...

Should we have Gordon rather than Manningham or any other FA or rookie? Manningham is an FA and Gordon would effectively be an early replacement for him.

Secondly, much like AB and many others have contended, the 9ers would've traded for Gordon a long time ago if they were serious. I would even contend that the Jon Baldwin trade happened AFTER they considered trading for Gordon. They are reasonably close in size, speed, and playmaking ability and we got Baldwin for the price of a first round bust rather than adding in a 1st, 2nd or 3rd round pick.

Only way we end up with Gordon is if the Browns have more injuries at RB or if we lose Boldin or Baldwin for the year and one of the teams cave into the demands of the other.

I know the amount seems high, but it really isn't. He is a proven commodity. Gordon has been great, but no guarantees he will be the guy we need. Plus it would ultimately come down to Crabs or Gordon being paid top money. We couldn't keep 2 guys at $10M a yr, but we can keep Crabs at $10M and Boldin at $5M

At least 3 teams have contacted Browns about deal for WR Josh Gordon; two have standing offers of a high pick and a player. Browns balking.



Hopefully we are one of those teams. Maybe Lamichael James is apart of our trade proposal. Maybe he hasn't been playing because we want to keep him healthy for the trade... You never know...

Please get Josh Gordon!! That'd be so awesome

Yea, just came here to post i saw on espn that they have and are receiving offers. Just get it done. I dont care if it costs our first rounder, i would be happy. Crabtree, Gordon, Patton, Baldwin is much more appealing for next season, than the group is without Gordon. Gordon is something we havent had in a WR in years, i would gamble.

Exactly... Get the f**kin deal done Baalke! Don't pass this s**t up. Dude is big, fast, and good.


Just get it done, Baalke !! If the excuse for drafting crappy WRs such as AJ Jenkins is that WRs are hard to evaluate, well then Gordon is proven material. Go on and show us what a shrewd operator you are and beat out all those other bidders !!

And Boldin is better than Gordon, so Crabs, Boldin, and Patton is better core IMO. But just what I think.


You've lost me there. What is this comparison between Boldin and Gordon about ? Boldin is not a deep threat wideout, Gordon is. They possess different skill sets, is like comparing apples with oranges. Boldin is not fast enough to burn DBs on the outside for the deep routes, if he was it would have happened by now. Boldin is a great receiver up to an intermediate range of around 25 yards, no question about that.

is this still going on,, despite the knashing of the teeth, this is not going to take place,, if we wanted gordon, it would have been done already, the team figures they are fine now and will even be better with mario coming back and then crabs. based upon the fact the team has won four games in a row, imposed our will on teams, won by double digits four games in a row for the first time since 1997 and are quite possibly the best team in the nfl no one is talking about, i am very ok with his strategy.. and the people who are ok giving a first rounder for this guy ,, lol

i like lmj a lot but if we aren't even going to activate him then trading him would make sense

Why not trade Kendall Hunter instead? There's no way the browns can justify taking LMJ. I would figure, when you compare the two there's more film on Hunter then on James.
IMO you have to take a chance, within reason, to get better when you can because you never know about injuries, losing free agents etc...

No way I'd trade Hunter.
Prediction: 3 teams have talked to Browns about Josh Gordon which includes a pick and a player. I expect Manningham being traded along with a pick for Josh Gordon

This ^^^^ Hunter is a legit #2 RB, would be stupid to trade Hunter a pick for Gordon, when Running is our key gameplan.

No way, Mario won't be dealt, plus I dont see the Browns wanting someone on a 1yr deal, and he is coming off a ACL injury, so they may be cautious, even though I hate faith he will be healthy. The 49ers just like MM a lot.

I'm just saying. In general I rather have Boldin on a 3yr deal, and Crabs on a long term deal, then Gordon, and rooks. I rather proven vets, and a few rooks to learn from them.
