Greg Little Trade Rumors: Latest Buzz and Speculation Surrounding Browns WR
The Cleveland Browns haven't finished wheeling and dealing, as wide receiver Greg Little may be the next player to be traded away.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Browns have made both Little and fellow wideout Josh Gordon available this season:

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms the Browns have received interest from teams regarding Greg Little:
There’s not as much interest in Little, but the Browns have fielded calls on him, too. And like we said, he also can be had for the right price. Basically, just about anyone in Cleveland is available if a team is willing to trade the proper compensation.
Michael Lombardi and Joe Banner are wasting little time in molding the team how they see fit. They laid the marker down after dealing running back Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts. Once he was gone, no player could really be considered untouchable.
Little isn't a top-end receiver or likely even a No. 1 option for many teams, but he no doubt would have some value in the trade market. He's only 24 years old, so his best days are still to come. Since entering the league in 2011, the former North Carolina Tar Heel has 122 receptions for 1,415 yards and six touchdowns.
Those are solid numbers for any wide receiver, especially one who's had to deal with the anemic Cleveland passing attack over the last few years.
All in all, this news shouldn't come as a huge shock.
Banner left the door open when asked on ESPN's Mike and Mike in the Morning about whether the Browns were done making moves. He said, "I don’t anticipate that happening. But if you’d asked me a week ago did we expect to trade Trent, I would’ve said no. I don’t think that will happen, and that isn’t the plan or agenda right now," per Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.
Since Cleveland is aggressively rebuilding, give credit to the organization, as it isn't afraid to completely write off the 2013 season by trading players like Richardson, Little and Gordon. The fans will be upset now, and rightfully so. But they'd look back on these moves as incredibly shrewd should the team turn the corner and become a viable playoff contender in the coming years.
