I think Patton can benefit more when Crabs and Mario come back.

Whatever works. Im hesitant to believe that LMJ will see the field with Lattimore, Hunter and still possibly Gore on the roster next season.

1. Gordon trade will have to involve a 2nd or 3rd to get him, maybe 1st. The Browns may be wanting to trade, but they wont go below market value. They will be willing to wait till offseason to make a deal. So LMJ and a 6th will never get it done.

2. LMJ wont see field like you said in 2014. Gore, Hunter and Lattimore will all see more playing time, and should.

his off the field troubles will limit his value tho. one more failed drug test and he's gone for a year.
Also Browns said they arent trading any of their WRs

Yeah, Browns were just seeing what offers they could get. They won and Gordon lit it up so made it even less likely he gets traded. People are thinking they are going to give their players away when really they are 1 game back of the division and have some good young talent on their team. Would be easier to trade when towards the deadline in week 8? if they are out of the race but by then we should be close to getting Manningham back and might not need him as much then. Yeah next year Gore, Lattimore/Hunter will get most of the carries. LMJ will be returner if lucky and change of pace guy once in awhile. He will be barely holding on. However, after 2014's season Hunter and Gore are FAs so in 2015 he could get a lot more time and be back at #3 RB.

And some of the FA's out there will cost more than the 1.3 mil or so we have left on the cap. If we aren't happy with our guys Hawkins seems like the most likely. Others out there Breaston, Devery Henderson, Massaqoui, Laurent Robinson (concussions though), Collie, Doucet, Barden, Aromoushadau, Armstrong, etc. I think we stick with what we have and if we would make a change Hawkins would have the best shot.

A couple things against Britt: 1. He is a free agent after this year so he would likely be a 3/4 year rental. 2. Isn't familiar with our system, doesn't have a head start like Hawkins so might not be able to contribute for awhile. 3. Doesn't play ST 4. often in trouble 5. often injured

Plus Chud told Gordon they were not going to trade him this week. So that ship has probably sailed.

Kenny Britt, on the other hand, could be had and could be cheaper.
This team has been f**ked up by WR injuries 3 years in a row now. Make it stop!
Couldn't we get Josh Gordon for a 3rd rounder? He's like one more f**k up from being suspended for a year, so even though he's very talented his value shouldn't be all that high.
Not again...sigh
**** again. Just when the WR corp looked like it might develop a solid 3, we have to wait. Get well fast young man, this team needs you.
That really sucks. I wanted to see the kid develop over the course of the season. However, I think it could be a blessing in two ways.

#1. I think this gives Patton the opportunity to get mental reps and see the game from a different perspective. Watching Boldin work and seeing his tendencies against particular CBs can only help his development.

#2. This is a prime opportunity for Jon Baldwin to really take hold of a top 4 receiver spot on the depth chart. He looked good last night...he has a good frame and does possess very good speed. I am sure Harbaugh is looking at him as a "man if we could get THIS guy to turn the light on" type of player.

Its not as bad as it seems...just a bummer I won't get to see him have a successful rookie season.

Doubt it. It's a business. The Browns wont just give Gordon away for a 6th. He will demand a 1st or 2nd at the least. Doesn't matter if he is 1 strike from a 1yr suspension. His talent warrants a high draft choice, not a 2nd rate RB and a late round pick.

Britt wouldn't fit in well. He is also a strike away from being suspended. And he needs to learn the playbook. People need to realize that anyone coming in needs to learn the playbook fast in order to play. a WR is difficult. Run the right routes. Not f**k up in coverage, block well. While it seems like nothing, it is a big thing.

And I rather not have 1 big problem in Britt or Gordon on the roster.

Agreed.
