The New England Patriots emerged as the favorites to land the often-troubled WR and so they did. The Patriots and the Browns agreed to a trade sending Gordon over to the Patriots for their RT Marcus Cannon and a 2019 5th round pick.
Josh Gordon Traded to NE
Since Tom Brady wears #12, Gordon will opt to wearing #10 on his jersey. Gordon provided his thoughts about the trade. “I first want to thank the Cleveland Browns for the opportunity that they gave me. It’s been a long run and they took the chance to pick me through the supplemental draft. It sucks that I won’t finish my career in Cleveland, but I’m looking forward to the next door. I am excited to play alongside big names like Gronk, Edelman, Hogan, and the list goes on. The biggest name is Tom Brady. He’s a living GOAT. I am looking to catch passes from him when he returns from his injury.”
Coach Sean Nguyen shared his thoughts about the trade. “Gordon is a monster. We’re hoping to have the same Gordon who put the league on notice when he had his breakout year. We’re aware of the off-the-field distractions, but Gordon is a one of a kind guy. He’s worth the risk.”
