Twitter Reacts to Patriots-Browns Josh Gordon Trade

Share

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

In order to make room for Gordon on the roster, the Patriots are cutting former Browns wide receiver Corey Coleman, who signed with New England last week.

It looks like the revolving door at wide receiver will continue spinning for the Patriots. 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.

Talent has never been a question with this 2013 First-team All-Pro, but Gordon, 27, comes with heavy baggage, which is why his time with the Browns is over. This summer, Gordon missed a portion of Cleveland's training camp as part of his "overall health and treatment plan".

Gordon arrived late to team facilities on Saturday, injured from a photo shoot.

That type of performance from Gordon would be very useful indeed to the Patriots, and the possibility of it, in addition to his physical profile and skill set, has inspired comparisons to when the team traded for Randy Moss ahead of the 2007 season. "I always think trust is whatever wide receiver is out there".

According to OddsShark, which cited information from the betting website Bovada, the trade for Gordon had the Patriots listed at plus-650 to win it all, tying the team with the Rams for the best odds.

"I'm content with our whole team, he said". We'll see how it goes this week. He missed the entire 2015 and 2016 seasons before returning past year.

I mean, we all knew that's where this was heading, didn't we?

Week 1's tie against Pittsburgh, in which he caught a game-tying, 17-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter, was Gordon's first appearance in a Week 1 game since his rookie season in 2012.

Many groaned, celebrated, and took to Twitter to express their astonishment at New England's latest acquisition.
