Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said today that the organization has no plans to trade wide receivers Josh Gordon and Greg Little.
“We have no plans on any of the trades,” Chudzinski said during a news conference.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Sunday morning that the Browns are fielding trade offers and are open to dealing Gordon and Little. At least one team has made a quality offer for Gordon, according to the report. ESPN contributor Adam Caplan reported that Gordon has been on the trade block for several weeks and that it’s very clear Browns CEO Joe Banner wants him out.
When asked if he has talked to Gordon about the rumblings, Chudzinski said he has not because there aren’t any such plans.
“If there was, I would talk to him,” Chudzinski said. If there was an issue, I would talk to him. The things that are out there that people say, the rumors, the things that people swirl around are just all noise. The reality is what’s in that team meeting room.”
Chudzinski was pressed a second time on whether the team will trade Gordon.
“We have no plan on doing that,” Chudzinski said.
Who will start?
In other Browns news, Chudzinski said he'll wait until later this week to determine whether Brian Hoyer will start at quarterback Sunday against the Bengals.
Chudzinski said the team will wait to see how Billy Cundiff (strained quad) is doing before deciding whether it needs to acquire another kicker.
