Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon reacted Tuesday to rumors that other teams were interested in trading for him.

“I really can’t comment on that. I’m not really sure," Gordon said after practice. "I haven’t heard too much about it. Cleveland is my team. That is where I want to be and everything like that, but that’s not even in the ballpark for me. I’m not really sure how that works.”

This comes after NFL.com's Adam Schefter reported that multiple teams were inquiring about Gordon but Browns sources said they're not looking to trade him. 

When asked about what it means to him that the Browns want to keep him, Gordon said: “I think it works out perfectly then for me. Mr. (Jimmy) Haslam, the organization and (Head) Coach (Hue) Jackson, I think the world of those guys and their decisions and this organization. They’re family. They’re showing me love and respect back to me by allowing me to stay here up to this point, and I expect to move forward with that. I’m excited about it. It’s where I want to be and I’m happy to be in Cleveland.”
