Limited risk for Patriots in acquiring talented Josh Gordon

The Cleveland Browns trade Josh Gordon to the New England Patriots

A conclusion to one of the most weird tenures of a Browns player1 has come as the Cleveland Browns have traded Josh Gordon to the New England Patriots in exchange for a conditional 5th round pick.

The Patriots are sending a 2019 fifth-round pick to Cleveland for Gordon, according to ESPN. When healthy, Gordon may be one of the best deep threats in the entire National Football League and if the Redskins were able to trade for him, he would instantly give Washington's offense a new dynamic that they don't now have.

The New England Patriots are adding arguably the most-athletically gifted wide receiver in the NFL. In a deal first reported by NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Patriots will send a conditional fifth-round pick to the Browns in exchange for Gordon. 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.

The Browns have been supportive of Gordon, but the team felt betrayed and decided it was time to move on.

He missed training camp to receive treatment and his team were cautiously optimistic he would help them this season.

"I hate to make projections and expectations", Brady said. In fact, Gordon could reportedly suit up as early as Week 3 for the Patriots. We'll see how it goes this week.

"We can't worry about that", Jackson said when asked about Gordon flourishing in New England. He missed the entire 2015 and 2016 seasons before returning past year.

The Browns declared Gordon out for Week 2 because of a hamstring injury and left him in Cleveland before the team departed for New Orleans for Sunday's loss to the Saints. "We all know what type of player he is". That year, Gordon caught 87 passes for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in just 14 games. Also Gordon's troubled past and health issues are a legitimate concern.
