The Detroit Lions are hurting at wide receiver after Nate Burleson has gone down with a broken arm because of his pizza accident. With that injury, the Lions are not wasting any time looking for other options at receiver:

Now the question is what teams are the Lions looking at to get help at receiver. There are a few guys that might be disgruntled on their current teams. Kenny Britt of the Tennessee Titnas has expressed his displeasure the last few days with geting pulled out of the lineup and did say that he would be out of Tennessee after the season.

The Cleveland Browns are shopping around Josh Gordon at the moment. He would be a nice acquisition for the team to take the spot on the other side of Calvin Johnson.

Hakeen Nicks could even be available for the right price. He was not pleased about this weekend and he will be a free agent at the end of the year. If only Jim Irsay were the owner in town. We could get some sort of tweet to tell us that a big time trade has happened. We will see what the Lions pull.

    What do you think the Lions would be willing to give up for Gordon?

      I don’t know what the Lions would want to give up, but the Browns likely want a 2nd or 3rd

        I think the Browns would want at least a 2 with some kind of conditional 2015 pick depending on performance/behavior. Think the Carson Palmer trade between Oakland/Cincy with a more talented younger player. Not sure the Lions, or any team is willing to give that up but most likely the only way the Browns give up Gordon.

    I would go as high as a second.
