Are The Detroit Lions Pursuing Josh Gordon?

Look out folks, Adam Schefter has confirmed via Twitter that at least three teams have contacted the Cleveland Browns about a deal for wide receiver Josh Gordon. Two of them have already made an offer which includes a high round pick and a player.

At 6’3, 225 lbs, Gordon could be the ideal receiver the Lions have been searching for to compliment Calvin Johnson. Could the Lions be one of the three teams? The Lions are short at the wide receiver position thanks to Nate Burleson’s car wreck and Ryan Broyles still not 100 percent. The Browns could use a young and talented back like Mikel Leshoure with the departure of Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts, so the pieces are there for a potential trade.

Gordon, 22, is in his second season and just one hiccup away from a season-long suspension. My guess is, if the Lions are one of these three teams that they are offering a third round pick and potentially Mikel Leshoure as opposed to the second round price Browns have reportedly set.

What do you think Lions fans, are the Lions trying to swing a deal for the troubled, yet very talented Gordon? Is he worth the risk? Leave your comments below.
