Patriots trade for Browns WR Josh Gordon

  • 49ers miss on Josh Gordon after Patriots trade with Browns

When the New England Patriots traded for Josh Gordon on Monday afternoon, they did it knowing that the ceiling on what he can do as a deep ball receiver is about as high as it gets. In exchange for Gordon, the team received a conditional 2019 fifth-round draft pick, a source informed of the deal told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Gordon missed the Browns' game Sunday against the New Orleans Saints with a mysterious hamstring injury.

The #Patriots have agreed to trade for #Browns WR Josh Gordon, I'm told. The Patriots are finalizing a deal to trade for Gordon, according to a report.

The Browns drafted Gordon in the second round of the 2012 supplemental draft.


To make room for Gordon, the Patriots cut recently signed wide receiver Corey Coleman, according to multiple reports.

A talented but troubled wideout, Gordon reportedly injured his hamstring during a promotional shoot between Friday's practice and Saturday's walk-through session.

Thank you for signing up for the Top 3 Newsletter. Gordon has only made it through an entire 16-game season one time, and that came in his rookie year of 2012. He'd been absent from the Browns since the beginning of training camp, reportedly to seek treatment for anxiety and mental health as he prepared to return from the latest of his series of suspensions under the NFL's substance abuse policy. Gordon was on the field for 69 snaps (78 percent of the Browns' plays), but had only three passes thrown his way. If he can return to form as a No. 1 receiver, Gordon will give Tom Brady another legitimate threat in the passing game, which he now lacks with Julian Edelman suspended for the next two weeks and Brandin Cooks catching passes in Los Angeles.
