This is academic of course because I think the browns have decided to keep him. I am not against giving a second for him, even throw in Williams, but Crabs and Manningham will be more than enough to put us over the top.
Gordon isn't going to happen but I bet we make a move for an obscure name to take one of the spots of Moore (been inactive after starting as the #3), Williams (the 'zone might finally get their wish), or Patton (I'm really thinking that he is going on IR but that is just me).
I could see us trading for Britt if only to have a body and to try and rehab him into a good #3/4 option / plan B for possibly/likely losing Boldin and/or Manningham after this season.
But I'd expect it to be someone that nobody on this board has thought much about like Jason Avant
, Jerome Simpson
, Emmanuel Sanders
, Jeremy Maclin
They still won't happen but my point is that if we trade for a WR it'll be a player that nobody was expecting.
