  • The Cleveland Browns trade Josh Gordon to the New England Patriots

To make room for Gordon on the roster, the Patriots released wide receiver Corey Coleman.

The New England Patriots have acquired Josh Gordon in a trade with the Cleveland Browns for a fifth round pick.

But on Monday, the Browns traded Gordon, the only 1,000-yard receiver Cleveland has had since Braylon Edwards in 2007, to the Patriots.

Reports came down on Saturday night of the Browns' intention to release Gordon by Monday afternoon.

At least 8 to 10 teams called the Browns inquiring about potentially trading for Gordon, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson, after the Browns announced Saturday that they meant to release Gordon on Monday.

However, Cleveland general manager John Dorsey found there was a crowded market for him and worked out the swap with New England.

The Browns have been supportive of Gordon, but the team felt betrayed and decided it was time to cut ties. "We tried to provide the right environment. Sometimes you just need a change of scenery and hopefully things work out for Josh".

Gordon's talent had caused the Browns to hang onto him while he dealt with drug and alcohol dependence.

But he again let them down, and Jackson acknowledged the separation was necessary.

"I am not making - I hate to make projections and expectations, " Brady said of Gordon.

I mean, we all knew that's where this was heading, didn't we? The conditional pick will go to the Browns if the 27-year-old wideout is active for 10 games. In fact, Gordon could reportedly suit up as early as Week 3 for the Patriots. He caught 56 passes for 718 yards and five touchdowns.

Still, he's regarded among his peers as one of the game's most talented players. "I always think trust is whatever wide receiver is out there". "We see what he does when he's on the field, so I guess I'll leave it at that for now".

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. He's also a restricted free agent next season, which could give the 49ers the opportunity to pursue him with their ample salary cap space if he performs well in New England.
