Josh Gordon traded from Cleveland Browns to New England Patriots

The Cleveland Browns traded Josh Gordon to the New England Patriots

The Browns selected Gordon in the 2012 supplemental draft despite his background of drug use at Baylor.

The Patriots have acquired Josh Gordon from Cleveland, the Browns announced. 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.

Cleveland's preference had been to trade Gordon to an NFC team, a source told Schefter on Sunday. He's making $790,000 this season - a relatively low figure among star receivers - and if he stays clean and catches the ball, he could cash in as a restricted free agent after the season. With Julian Edelman starting the season on a four-game suspension, Phillip Dorsett, Chris Hogan and Cordarrelle Patterson have been the only wide receivers with catches thus far, as the team cut ties in the offseason with a number of noteworthy veteran players, including Kenny Britt, Eric Decker, Jordan Matthews and Malcolm Mitchell.

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.

This came after Gordon suffered a hamstring injury at a promotional shoot on Friday night and then he showed up late to the team's facility.

It's a gamble the Patriots were willing to take after a string of receiver additions have since become receiver subtractions. "I always think trust is whatever wide receiver is out there".

"We can't worry about that", Jackson said when asked about Gordon flourishing in New England. "We see what he does when he's on the field, so I guess I'll leave it at that for now". 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". Soon after news broke of Cleveland's intent, a number of teams began calling to inquire about Gordon.

Gordon's best season came in 2013 when he made the Pro Bowl after registering 1,646 receiving yards and nine touchdowns.

Last week, Gordon found himself in more trouble.
