Receiver Josh Gordon has experienced the thrill of victory only 10 times in his 35 games with the Browns since 2012, but he says he has no plans to ask out after the season. "You can ask for a trade whenever you want to really, but that's not really on my mind, man,'' he said Thursday. "I'm just glad to be back.'' Gordon has watched teammates such as Kenny Britt and Joe Haden join winning teams this season in New England and Pittsburgh, respectively, and both are now gearing up for the playoffs, and possibly the Super Bowl. Gordon, on the other hand, is hoping to be part of the 0-14 Browns' first victory of the season Sunday in Chicago. "I'm happy for both of those guys just knowing their careers and their journeys, getting an opportunity to spread their wings, so to speak, get a different look, a different perspective,'' Gordon said. "I know Joe was heartbroken having to leave here. Joe's one of those guys that was brought in 100 percent here, and a lot of us take on this job of being here as a challenge and something that we don't shy away from.'' He insisted that playing here is "not seen as something that's holding us back. It's something as a competitor you want to do. You want to come to Cleveland to change the dynamic, to be one of the people responsible for bringing a winning season, a winning organization to the city." Since Week 5 of the 2013 season -- more than four years ago -- Gordon has won only two of the 19 games he played in, one in 2013 and one in 2014. Yet he still feels the same way as guys like left tackle Joe Thomas and linebacker Christian Kirksey, who hope to help make the good times roll. "That means we have to work hard, and when we do get over that hill, it's going to be great," Gordon said.
