Josh Gordon released off IR

Yes, our high flying passing attack will certainly suit him well.

 

 

We have one deep threat in the whole offense.

 

Just roll a safety over top of John Brown and we don't have a single guy who can get open 20 yards or more downfield or catch contested passes. 

 

Gordon would give us a verticle threat that Beasley, Jones, McKenzie, Roberts, etc haven't been able to provide.

Nothing to do with this thread.  Just wondering if you regret changing your TSW name to Jonas Jenning 2.0?  Dank >> our LT

 

LOL, great question. No regrets! I'd be happy if Dawkins ended up as good as JJ, just with less injuries. And so far Dawkins has worked out better than my last choice (Dareustein). I just hope Beane keeps at least one player with a D-lastname. Dawkins is the only one on the roster right now!

what is your point again? Is Gordon gonna get 40M when claimed. Nope 

No, the point was that if a guy can decide not to show up with 40M dollars at stake it's reasonable to ask if he won't show up for considerably less than that.

Do you not know Josh Gordon's history?

Yea, this. Gordon is a guy with a very checkered past. He also has one more strike and he is out again. It’s not like every other situation. Teams putting in a claim I am sure will talk with his agent.

The pro-Foster faction here just threw their laptops but we also have a QB who hasn't completed a deep ball all season and it's nearly November so I'm not sure how much a deep threat matters when you can't complete passes to them.  We've had open guys, they were all missed.

Do you mean the other 1st round Browns bust Corey Coleman?

And How often in the NFL has a guy that has very little money walk away from his contract?  Jesus people. He will be claimed and if it is the Dolphins he will show up and play and hit UFA

I would not do it. Great talent but personal issues make him too unreliable. If not, Pats would have kept him.

Gordon isnt a deep ball one-trick pony. Get him the ball on those 10-15 yard In routes that Brown has been running, and let the big boy YAC it up.

so then what is the point to having all this culture in the locker room?  

The reality is if Bills claim and are Awarded him he immediately walks in as the most talented WR on this roster.

So we are now going to take logical thought, and apply it to Josh Gordon.  OK

 

This is a stupid argument regarding the Dolphins anyway because they aren't going to claim him.

Culture breads culture. When you have a certian culture you can scramble in others to bring them up.

neither does Gordon. You really think he won’t show up to a team that claimed him in a contract year?  


so MIA claims him. Gordon who is trying to fix a career and earn ISNT going to show up and play so he hits UFA clean Really?

Going to Miami or Bengals is worse than sitting out the last 9 weeks of the season.

I think his issues go beyond culture. And one strike and he’s gone. I feel bad for the guy and would love to have his talent on the team. I just don’t think he can control himself. I get the feeling there is a lot of culture on the Pats and they ultimately had to give up trying.

Bills should take a run at him, can't hurt too much. Our locker room can handle it and we can dump him quickly if something happens.

Steelers prob grab him.  Or Raiders.   But we should def put in a claim.

There's almost no risk.   With the exception of Brown & Beasley, no one in the WR corps has shown they're part of the long term plan.

Yes waivers. Because after a certain point in the season, ALL player go through waivers. It's why NE waited this long to release him.

 

So.....to stick it to him???  Would the Evil Empire do that? 

 

Yeah, I guess they would. 

 

With joy!

Josh Gordon living in Miami?  That might not work out well. 

 

This is a case where being limited to just Applebees or Dave & Busters works in our favor!   😋

And has he been or had any issues since his final chance?
