Josh Gordon has been the subject of trade talk for the past week, but on Friday night he showed the Cleveland Browns they might be better off keeping him.

Or else he raised his trade value.

Either way, Gordon gave the Browns what they've been missing, hooking up with RG3 on a 44-yard reception on his first throw and this 43-yard score over Brent Grimes.

Gordon missed most of 2014 and all of 2015 due to drug-related suspensions, and he'll miss the first four games of this season. The Browns have stuck by him, but that could change if a team makes the right offer.

If Gordon's score is a sign he can return to his 2013 form -- €” 87 catches for an NFL-leading 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns -- €” then his price just went up, or he might be off the market entirely.
