Rather than a restricted free agent, Gordon will be an exclusive-rights free agent. That would be because he completed his rookie contract, but has not completed four years of service under the NFL's labor deal. Once Cleveland tenders a qualifying offer, Gordon's options are limited to signing the tender or sitting out yet another season. Since the end of his second National Football League season in 2013, Gordon managed just five games in 2014, missed the entirety of the 2015 and 2016 ... (more...)

That could be great news for the Cleveland Cavaliers . That's what this league is all about and hopefully at the end of the road then I have the Cavs there to actually compete for one, to be in a Finals representing the East.
