Favorites, Underdogs and the Unthinkable
Before you can guess what team will sign Josh Gordon you have to answer one question, why are the Browns willing to let him go? More importantly what are teams willing to give to acquire Gordon? His last play with the Browns was a touchdown catch to break a winless streak and there is no doubt that the guy has talent. So let’s look at what team will sign Josh Gordon.
The Pats are the favorite to sign Gordon and that should not come as a surprise since they have big issues at wide out this year and he is an incredible talent. Team up Gordon with Tom Brady is an excellent incentive for Gordon to stay clean.
Same as above except Gordon gets to play with Aaron Rodgers. The better incentive for the Browns is that they get to ship Gordon out of the AFC. The Packers missed out on Kahlil Mack so now is the time to show the fans they are serious.
Wait, why are the Titans big favorites? Because this team is in a “win now” mode. Teaming a young Gordon with a young Marcus Mariota looks good and will excite the fan base.
The Usual Suspects
The Cowboys (+400), Jaguars (+400) and even the Jets (+500) should get some consideration but until they find out the information behind Gordon it will be tough to figure out what team will sign Josh Gordon.
