Josh Gordon released off IR

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. 


ooo no the one strike issue. Man you would have hated the 90 Bills and their off field issues. 
 

fact remains it would improve the team would be the best WR on this roster the minute he walked in the room. It doesn’t handcuff the Bills later falling right in line with the McClappy not wanting to hurt the future for today. And we have the Lockerroom to support a player like Gordon.

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

 

Yeah, I guess they would. 

 

With joy! 

 

More so to stick it to the good teams that might want him. Like us and Texans, etc

Fair enough. Your sarcasm aside, I think he will just be a distraction. If not, I don’t see any way the Pats don’t keep him for Brady. But if we get him, I’ll be very happy to be wrong and will root for him. Like I said, love his talent. 
 

And I have definitely been rooting for the Bills long enough to know the 90’s Bills. I didn’t hate them then and wouldn’t hate him now. He has just progressed so far in the league’s substance abuse program that he has no wiggle room.

2013 was a long time ago and I don't think WR is a high priority for Beane at the moment.

Yep- ever since Gordon came off league suspension he has been average at best.

 You are claiming the Prorated Contract. Of 2.025M. Roughly 129K a week left. So what little over 1M

And still would be the most talented WR on the Bills roster

I disagree- 4 years ago yes, today nope. He isn’t better than John Brown.

He must be no good/done if Patriots released him

Probably a factor in the Patriots' decision to trade for Sanu.

If you claimed him you are claiming the remaining portion of the 1 year 2.025M contract

he absolutely is. But let’s say he isn’t he walks in and is immediately a legit 2. So do we like upgrading our team?

agree makes zero sense. Philly, Pitt, Raiders, Houston, Colts, Jax all make sense and all have higher priority than us I believe

Yep but I am going with he doesn’t clear waivers

His Injury and lack of vertical passing game and NE going back to the horizontal game Brady did at the start of career sure did factor into it

Again- he isnt. Imagine if Brown was hit on all those deep shots Allen has missed pr he lead him for some YAC. Your view may be much different. On to your question- he may be an upgrade for a 2 but it is a lot of risk for a player that has been in a lot of trouble and hasn’t produced much on a team where he should have. No team has been jumping for this guy. Just my opinion thou - Go Bills

Let's hope that Buffalo's unique nightlife mixture of Canadian ballet and 4 am last call will appeal to Josh!

would you have wanted to trade for an Injured AJ Green?  Now Why should Gordon have produced in NE?  Because it is NE?  Notice how many WRs don’t produce for NE?

 

and Gordon does things Brown Doesn’t. Great Body control, physical WR play, amazing high point skills and back shoulder fades. Big catch radius

Because I believe it is a big deal. You have to invest in him. And I’m not talking about the money. We’ve got plenty of room for that.

 

On an offense that needs all the work and coaching it can get, you have to teach him the offense. Get him timing with Josh, etc... All at the expense of that coaching and throwing time with others.

 

If you think he’s around for a while, worth it. If you think he’s a tourist passing through, not worth it. I think he’s a tourist. If he wasn’t, I don’t think the Pats let him go because they could have used him.

while this makes some sense it really doesn’t. Bad teams are not going to have a net loss of UFAs. And Gordon isn’t going to be signed to a long term lucrative deal. I smell another 1 or 2 year deal in his future.

but yet I am sure you were banging the table for Rental AJ Green right?  So guess we don’t like improving our team. 
 

so tell me why was he let go?  Ooo wait the Injury. Hmmm he has been fighting a knee all season. He doesn’t fit in the offense Pats Run now they went back to the Horizontal offense.

Wow, great point.

Kinda but is Gordon gonna land a big UFA deal? Nope he will get a 1 year deal again. And bad teams are not really going to have a net loss in UFA they are gonna sign players. How many UFAs did we sign after our tank year?

I think we should prepare ourselves to not have Gordon... seems likely that he will be claimed before it gets to us.  


he likely will. And I am fine with it as long as I also read that the Bills did put a claim in.
