Report: Browns Close To Trading Josh Gordon To Patriots

ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed that the Cleveland Browns traded wide receiver Josh Gordon to the New England Patriots.

The Patriots are giving up on a 2019 fifth round draft pick to get Josh Gordon. If he is not productive for ten games, the Browns will send the player back to the Patriots. Schefter added that Gordon is feeling good at the moment despite his hamstring injury. He will also play in the matchup against the Detroit Lions.

Gordon re-aggravated a hamstring injury at a promotional shoot. The Cleveland Browns announced their decision to release him, and we witnessed all the interest pouring in from around the league. Yes, it was more than clear that the trade would happen.

Gordon played in 41 of his 97 possible regular season games since his entrance in the NFL. He played in the last five games oft he season for the Browns. Gordon recorded 18 receptions for 335 yards and a touchdown.

Right before the start of training camp back in July, the 27-year-old player said he won’t be playing with the team at the opening.

“I am reaching out to you all personally and letting you know that I am not only doing great physically but mentally as well. You will notice that I will not be in Cleveland for the start of training camp. Rest assured this too is a part of my overall health and treatment plan. I appreciate the awesome support I have received from teammates, friends, fans, and the Brown’s organization. Just like you, I am excited to start the season and I have every intention of being ready and available to join my teammates soon to help bring winning football to our fans. With the help of the NFL, NFLPA, and the Browns’ organization, I have been able to utilize the resources available to me that will ensure my well-being on and off the field. By continuing to follow the plan set up by our medical director and his team and taking this time before this season starts, we believe it will help me maintain the progress I’ve made for not only today but for many years to come,” he said.

Good luck, Gordon!
