Patriots Acquire WR Josh Gordon From Browns

The Cleveland Browns traded Josh Gordon to the New England Patriots

Gordon was taken in the supplemental draft in the second round of the 2012 supplemental draft, showing off some promise as a rookie wideout. A trade to put Gordon in red and gold was probably never going to happen, but Adam Schefter reported the 49ers were one of several teams involved in talks with the Browns.

The Browns made it known over the weekend that they were planning to release Gordon if they couldn't trade him.

Gordon's talent had caused the Browns to hang onto him while he dealt with drug and alcohol dependence. The final "nail in the coffin" came last week when Gordon injured himself during a photo shoot and it prompted the Browns to move on from him.

New England traded for Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon to sure up its ailing receiving corps. So, who did the Patriots decide was expendable with the addition of Gordon?

If Gordon is not active for 10 games this season, the Patriots will get a 2019 seventh-round pick in return from the Browns.

Gordon, 27, missed three weeks of training camp this summer to undergo counseling and treatment, and he recently said he was in a good place mentally and physically.

"I'm content with our whole team, he said". That year, Gordon caught 87 passes for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in just 14 games. I'm glad that we're not in a space where we're thinking about those things: "What could be, what could not be, and that we're coaching the guys that are here". He would go on to only play in 11 more games as a Brown, no more than five games in a season, due to multiple league and team suspensions due to substance abuse. "We see what he does when he's on the field, so I guess I'll leave it at that for now". "This place will always feel like home to me".

But looking at the fit a bit more, Gordon likely wouldn't be a great option for the Redskins, especially since Alex Smith prefers to run a more calculated short game. And for New England fans?
