The Browns are finally in rebuilding mode.
The team is assessing each player on the team and making a proper decision on their role on the team in 2016. With new coach Hue Jackson on deck, the team is trying to change the culture of the locker room while keeping as many talented players a possible.
The first person on the chopping block was Johnny Manziel. The team decided it was time to move on, and has let the talented (yet troublesome) signal caller walk. Another issue in the past was star wideout Josh Gordon. The team seems ready to meet with him and determine his fate soon.
Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown said he and coach Hue Jackson would need to have a discussion with Gordon. Brown also indicated he'd be open to the receiver's return if he hears and sees the right things during that conversation.
"As I understand as it's been reported back to me by people who have been in contact with Josh and seen him throughout the offseason, including his representatives, Josh is taking it seriously and he's learned from his mistakes," Brown said Thursday at the NFL combine. "He's serious about wanting to be a pro and be one of the best wide receivers in the game.
"And so I think if he's done all the things to put himself in that position and clean up some of the mistakes of the past, then certainly we would welcome him back."
With Manziel out the door, the team will more than likely be taking a quarterback with their #2 overall pick in the draft. They will need Josh on deck and ready to go as a security blanket to protect the new signal caller.
With that being said, if the meeting goes poor, their are options. Gordon has proven to be very productive, and a team may be willing to gamble on a player with this type of talent.

Should the Browns investigate a trade for Josh Gordon?

I mean they can't get any worse
Dude the Browns have no hope. It's not the coach's or the players' fault. It's the management's fault.
If they're going to rebuild the entire organization, they better go all out. I think it would be better for the team to trade him!
I think they should consider all the options. They might be able to get a better trade for him if he demonstrates that he is still capable of playing at a high level.
