during the bye week? You mean in the next 48 hours? Trade deadline is Tuesday evening.

technically its already our bye week
Trading for Josh Gordon makes sense, but it likely won't happen-

But the risk of personal problems is such much less than the boon of a productive, cost-controlled player. This is why I have found the argument "we shouldn't trade for Gordon because we have Mario Manningham and Michael Crabtree coming back" to be unpersuasive. First, we don't know how healthy and productive they are going to be. And, even though the 49ers have much better vantage point from which to evaluate their potential productivity, they can't know either. Not until the two men are back on the field playing the game. Secondly, this trade wouldn't net us a player for this season and nothing else. Gordon would stick around, finishing out his contract with the 49ers. We would be bringing in talent for the next few years; he's a free agent in 2016.

Moreover, what is the point of stockpiling draft picks if you aren't going to use them in a high leverage situation? I think we sometimes have this Smaug-like attitude: horde ALL THE DRAFT PICKS! We can't dragon-sit on them forever. Utilize those resources.

If it's such a slam dunk, then why hasn't anyone traded for him? There are many teams that could use an upgrade at wide receiver. Obviously front offices see the risk of losing him for a year-long suspension as very real; I think the risk aspect is greatly understated.
Josh Gordon I like.......BUT he really scares me as far as off field issues. He has top round talent & production but does he have the hunger to succeed? I'd give Clevage a 3rd and Lamichael James for Josh Gordon.
Trades will never happen in the nfl. I can only pray to god that Patton woudl be the 4th WR while Crabtree and Manny would be the 2nd and 3rd Wr's respectively.
Jared Allen!!!!!!!

How can you say NEVER when Jon Beason, Levi Brown, Eugene Monroe, and Trent Richardson have been traded in the last two months? Just asking.........

Is the FO slick enough to trick a team into trading Williams for a shiny new penny?
Matt Miller ‏@nfldraftscout
Interesting trade proposed by @AdamSchefter: Browns WR Josh Gordon to the 49ers for a second-round pick and WR Jon Baldwin

Jared Allen isn't going anywhere with his contract. Vikes will probably cut in offseason for savings even if they have bigger problems, new coach & qb to start with.

Not even worth a penny found in the sewer at this point.
