The Cleveland Browns did not play smart when they traded wide receiver Josh Gordon to the New England Patriots for a fifth-round pick. Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey made a ridiculous trade, and NFL fans are laughing at him.
However, if you ask Dorsey, he will say there is nothing wrong with his decision. The Cleveland Browns general manager talked to media members, and of course, one of them wanted to know more about the Gordon trade. They even asked Dorsey if he ever second-guesses the trade. Well, we believe that he gave the wrong answer. Even Dorsey himself cannot believe in that.
“I’m fine with the trade,” he said. Really?
We believe that the general manager already regrets the decision he made, because his former star wide receiver is making headlines with another team. Yes, the New England Patriots can handle Gordon, and Dorsey is left with a bunch of players who cannot beat a team.
The Cleveland Browns general manager may not be aware of it, but he regrets this trade. He will understand that by the end of the 2018 season.
Gordon is the guy you use on the field to slam defenses. The general manager underestimated his former receiver at the very first moment he decided to agree to a trade for a fifth-round pick. Nobody believes that Dorsey is fine with the decision. We know he is pretending.
“No. I never second guess, but that’s about as far as I’m going to answer the question. He works for the New England Patriots and I’m forbidden to talk about other players. I’m fine with the trade.”
He faked the response. There’s no other explanation to these words. No general manager would ever be happy to trade a star like Gordon. That guy is helping New England to win games, and Dorsey better watch him score. That’s the only thing he can do at the moment.
