Patriots Acquire Josh Gordon For 5th Round Pick

The Browns have been trying to trade Gordon this past weekend after they decided they would move on from him.

Rapoport reported Sunday morning Gordon had injured his hamstring during a promotional photoshoot, which contributed to Browns' decision to release him. He missed training camp to receive treatment and the Browns were cautiously optimistic he would help them this season.

As part of the condition, the 27-year-old Gordon reportedly must appear in at least 10 of New England's 14 remaining games.

The Patriots are sending a conditional fifth-round draft choice to the Browns for Gordon.

Gordon had an MRI on his hamstring and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that it came out fine and he will be eligible to play in Week 3.

Wide receiver Josh Gordon is headed to the Patriots.

Selected in the second round of the 2012 supplemental draft, Gordon has proven to be an exceptional talent - when he's on the field.

Gordon has played in just six games since, missing two entire seasons because of substance abuse issues. He has faced several suspensions for violating the league's drug policy but is widely considered one of the most talented receivers in the game. Additionally, Gordon was on the receiving end of five passes that went for gains of at least 20 yards and converted 12 first downs.

He sat out the first 11 games a year ago before returning for Cleveland's final five games, and caught 18 passes for 335 yards and one touchdown.
