CLEVELAND - The trade rumors are following Browns receiver Josh Gordon like a ballhawking cornerback.
A tweet by Adam Schefter of ESPN earlier this week stated that the Browns continue to listen to trade offers for the talented receiver. Schefter reported that there are two standing offers on the table and that the Browns are balking.
Browns coach Rob Chudzinski is on record saying that Gordon won't be traded. That could change if a team dangles a first-round pick in front of general manager Michael Lombardi and CEO Joe Banner.
Gordon is anxious for the trade deadline of Tuesday at 4 p.m. to arrive.
"It would be pretty naive of me to think it's not possible," Gordon said. "If it does, it does. If it doesn't, I'll be glad to be here."
The front office is in a trading mood in an attempt to load up for the 2014 draft. They have an extra first-round pick because of the trade that sent running back Trent Richardson to the Colts and own seven choices in the first four rounds.
Gordon could be the missing piece for any playoff contender in need of an upgrade at receiver. There are concerns about the effort he puts out, but his skill level often trumps that issue.
"Ultimately it's up to Joe Banner and Jimmy Haslam and the people at the top," Gordon said. "I do feel confident that the head coach wants me to be here. The reality is that they're saying they're open to listening to anybody, so anything can happen."
GOOD NEWS: Safety Tashaun Gipson was pleased to learn that Packers tight end Jermichael Finley had movement in all his extremities after being taken off the field on a stretcher last Sunday. Finley was hit in his upper back by Gipson.
Gipson hasn't heard from the league office about a possible fine. The replay showed that there was no helmet-to-helmet contact.
Gipson said the incident won't change the way he plays.
"I'm at the point of my career where I don't know how to change," Gipson said. "I can come up and tap somebody and he can run through me the whole game and I'll be cut next season. It's not like I'm targeting people. I'm making legal hits."
WHAT IF: Chiefs coach Andy Reid was asked how history might have played out if the Browns had used the first pick in the 1999 draft on quarterback Donovan McNabb instead of Tim Couch. Couch had a short, injury-filled career, while McNabb had a long and successful career playing for Reid, who was then the Eagles coach.
"I'm glad they didn't (pick McNabb)," Reid said during a conference call.
NEW GUY: Recent addition Fozzy Whittaker is the kick returner for now. Whittaker played in three games with the Chargers. The Browns claimed him off waivers after he was released by San Diego.
Whittaker averaged 34.3 yards on three returns against the Packers. He averaged 28.8 yards on nine returns for the Chargers.
INJURY REPORT: Linebacker Quentin Groves (ankle) didn't practice. Defensive lineman Billy Winn (quadricep) and linebacker Brandon Magee (oblique) were limited.
Tight end Anthony Fasano (knee/ankle) and safety Kendrick Lewis (ankle) were limited for the Chiefs.
