PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Even though the Cleveland Bronws surprised everyone and won their last game in shootout fashion against the Vikings, it’s still widely believed they’re planning for the future. The first shoe to drop was obviously their trade of Trent Richardson to the Colts in exchange for a 2014 first round pick.

The second shoe is rumored to be wide receiver Josh Gordon.

The Eagles, thin at wide receiver because of the preseason injury to Jeremy Maclin, might make sense as a trade partner with the Browns if the price was right for Gordon, who caught 10 passes against the Vikings, for 146 yards and a touchdown after missing the first two games of Cleveland’s season.

If you listen to Eagles general manager Howie Roseman, a trade seems unlikely.

“There is a lot of conversation going on, but this time of year it isn’t usually anything that is going to come to fruition. It’s hard to get guys acclimated into your scheme during the season,” Roseman said on his WIP show on Monday night.  “It’s not baseball where you can just take a third baseman and ask him to play third base. I think that’s a hard thing to do during the year, but I’ll tell you what, if there’s an opportunity to improve our football team, if there’s a player out there that’s a talented player, I promise we’re going to investigate.”

Gordon’s breakout performance on Sunday could be looked at one of two ways: it could be a reason for the Browns to keep Gordon, or a reason for them to try and trade him while his value is high.
