Josh Gordon has had a breakout second season, but was the subject of trade rumors at the deadline, which was unsettling for him.

Gordon is averaging 127.3 receiving yards per game for the Cleveland Browns.

"I had to talk him off the ledge, so to speak, when they were talking about trading him," NFL Media's Michael Irvin revealed on Thursday's edition of the "M&M Podcast." "He was so hurt and crushed. I was like, 'Man, you are the only property of value.' But he said he wants to be in Cleveland and wants to win in Cleveland, so I respect that."
