Report: Josh Gordon ‘strongly interested’ in playing for Jaguars

While the NFL world has been taken aback by yesterday’s announcement by the Cleveland Browns that they’d be releasing, and now likely to trade, former Pro Bowl wide receiver Josh Gordon, many Jaguars fans on Twitter have begun opining if the team should make a move to acquire the receiver, his past troubles be damned.

While I still believe it’s highly unlikely given Gordon’s past, and what appears to be a solid market for him via trade, according to Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman, one of the teams Gordon would love to play for is the Jaguars.

When available, Gordon is a premier weapon in the passing game and rarely does someone of his talent level come available. The huge question is if he’ll remain available and why the Browns would release that caliber of player if he was going to be able to play a full season.

Stay tuned, as this will be a continuing story the next couple of days.
