BEREA, Ohio - Already dealing with cornerbacks, double coverage and defences targeting him, Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has spent the past month trying to shake free from trade rumours. Cheap Football Jerseys Authentic . Its been exhausting. "Im tired of it," Gordon said. With Tuesdays NFL trade deadline approaching, Gordon remains the subject of speculation that wont go away. The talented second-year receiver with All-Pro potential has become a coveted commodity, and as he prepares for Sundays game at Kansas City, Gordon doesnt know if it will be his final one with the Browns (3-4). "I honestly wish if it was going to happen, I wish it would happen already instead of dragging on," he said. "If a trade offer came in and thats what the Browns want to do, so be it. If not, then let it be known this is where Im going to be. Its part of the game. Im dealing with it." Browns coach Rob Chudzinski has insisted the Browns wont trade Gordon. CEO Joe Banner recently said he would be "completely shocked" if the Browns traded the 22-year-old, but the team has continued to receive offers for Gordon, who has 27 catches for 450 yards and two touchdowns in five games. Clevelands trade of running back Trent Richardson last month to Indianapolis for a first-round pick underscored the teams willingness to build for the future, and Gordon understands he might not be a part of it. "Ultimately its up to Joe Banner and (owner) Jimmy Haslam and the guys up top, but I do feel comforted in my head coach wants me to be here," Gordon said. "But the reality of it is anybody can make a deal and theyre saying theyre open to listening to people, so anything can happen." Gordons off-field issues could play a role in whether he stays in Cleveland. He was suspended for the first two games this season for violating the NFLs substance-abuse policy, and its his understanding that another failed drug test could result in a one-year suspension. Gordons checkered past could prompt the Browns to move him before he makes another mistake. But his background may make teams leery of taking a chance on him. It appears to be a gamble either way. Also, there have been questions about Gordons commitment and whether he always gives 100 per cent effort. Last week in Green Bay, Gordon had just two catches for 21 yards and his performance included a mistimed jump on a 4th-and-15 play when he failed to extend his arms and had the ball knocked away by a Packers defender. Gordons body language wasnt good, and it may have been because the trade talk had affected his play. "I would think it would bother him," said running back Willis McGahee. "From what Ive seen, I think he wants to be here. Im hoping he wants to be here. When you hear youre about to get traded your spirits change a little bit, but the only thing I can tell him is that its a business and anybody is expendable. Just got out and do your job. Do what you do. Dont let people see you all bent out of shape and things like that." McGahee, who signed with Cleveland last month following the Richardson trade, said Gordon would benefit from having a veteran player to mentor him. Hes confident that at some point Gordon will mature into a dependable professional. "Everybody gets it. It just depends on when," McGahee said. "I didnt get it until my fourth or fifth year. And I was like, All right, Ive got to start eating right and got to start doing this. Thats part of life. Thats part of growing. He has the talent. You can see it in him. Hes going to put it together in a minute." Browns offensive co-ordinator Norv Turner doesnt doubt that Gordon has been giving his all. He knows there may be times when it appears the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder is coasting, but its not because hes not trying. "Everyone wants Josh to be the Josh when hes at his best. I do, Josh does, everyone does," Turner said. "Ive been with young receivers and I dont know that thats realistic. Hes working hard. Josh is making great progress and the young receivers that Ive been around, its in the third or fourth year when you start seeing all of those things happen." It remains to be seen if theyll happen for Gordon in Cleveland. NOTES: Browns defensive co-ordinator Ray Horton predicted that his unit, which has given up 62 points in the past two games, will bounce back. "I know what my vision is and where were at on the field and in the classroom," he said. "I just think youll see a different Cleveland Browns defence moving forward." ... McGahee did not practice, as routine maintenance for his knees. ... RT Mitchell Schwartz is excited about playing against his big brother, Geoff, an offensive lineman for the Chiefs. "Well never face each other, so its not like a weird thing where one of us has to block each other," said Schwartz, adding his mom has a jersey thats half Browns, half Chiefs.

BELGRADE, Serbia -- Canadas Milos Raonic turned to his most reliable weapon on Friday after rolling his ankle in a key Davis Cup matchup. Raonic fought off a match point and the injury in the third set to pull out a five-set victory over Serbias Janko Tipsarevic to tie the best-of-five Davis Cup at one match apiece. The 22-year-old from Thornhill, Ont., leaned heavily on his booming serve to avoid testing his taped ankle. "I felt like playing aggressively was the key. I started serving in the fourth (set) on and starting going for it more," said Raonic. "That helped me survive a lot of tough issues and then just kept plugging away." Raonic needed four hours 12 minutes to complete the 5-7, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 10-8 victory at the Belgrade Arena. Earlier, top-ranked Novak Djokovic had little trouble in a 6-2, 6-0, 6-4 win over Vancouvers Vasek Pospisil. Of his 34 aces served up in the match, Raonic hit 17 in the fifth set alone. Raonic appeared to roll over on his ankle near the end of the third set but didnt receive treatment until the changeover to the fourth set. He got the ankle taped before going out to take the fourth set on the strength of seven more aces. He didnt know the extent of the problem but said he only noticed it on certain movements. After leaving the arena, Raonic was to receive some treatment and was adamant that hell be ready for his reverse singles match against Djokovic that kicks off the action on Sunday. "I wont think too much of it until I get more information," said Raonic. "Its just a waste of energy until I actually know whats actually happening." Heading into the fifth set there was another longer changeover when the referee called for the clay court to be watered. As a result, the fifth set started with the court still damp. Its always the referee who has discretion in such matters but Raonic didnt like how the situation was handled. "I dont think the issue is with it being watered, I think the issue is with how the head referee dealt with it," said Raonic. "I found it very unprofessional without consulting once and just I dont think he did a good job dealing with that situation. "Its disappointing because Im sure hes been in that situation many times." The victory takes some of the pressure off Pospisil and Torontos Daniel Nestor, who will team up in Saturdays doubles match against Ilija Bozoljac and Nenad Zimonic. Wholesale Football Jerseys China. A Raonic loss would have created a must-win situation for the Canadian doubles duo. Reverse singles matches are on tap for Sunday. The singles draws are flipped with Djokovic to open against Raonic and Tipsarevic to play Pospisil. The winner of the tie will play either the Czech Republic or Argentina in the final in November. The Czechs won both singles matches Friday for a 2-0 lead. Djokovic, who was coming off a loss to Rafael Nadal in the U.S. Open final on Monday, won 12 consecutive games midway through the opening match. He completed the victory in one hour 41 minutes. "Im not going to put up any excuses. Hes the No. 1 in the world for a reason and I thought he played amazing," said Pospisil. "He didnt make any mistakes. I have to play my best tennis to keep it close and I was playing well in the beginning and after I went down a break I started panicking a bit and wasnt playing my best." Pospisil has had a breakthrough season and is up to No. 41 in the world rankings. However, he was unable to put much pressure on Djokovic and committed 75 unforced errors. There was a small pocket of Canadian fans in the 15,000-seat venue and they were in full voice early as Pospisil easily held serve in the opening game. Pospisil had his serve broken in the fifth game and Djokovic took control. Djokovic appeared fresh despite a busy travel week and limited practice time. He needed only 28 minutes to win the second set. "I was forcing it too much and I wasnt in my own skin," said Pospisil. "He makes you do that by just being Novak and playing the way he was playing, he maybe forced me to go for a little too much and there was probably a 45-minute period where it probably wasnt too pretty for my side." Pospisil played better in the third set despite being broken in the first game. He held serve the rest of the way but Djokovic was steady and secured the win when Pospisil put a shot into the net. Canada, which upset Spain and Italy in Vancouver to advance, has never reached the Davis Cup semifinals in the modern era. Serbia, meanwhile, is trying to get back to the final after winning the event in 2010. ' ' '
