Peter King Has Strong Response To Patriots Trading For Josh Gordon

In the end, a fifth-round draft choice is a modest price to pay for the chance to see if Gordon's talent might emerge again - especially given the depleted state of the Patriots' wide receiver corps.

As Bill Belichick often says, a player gets a clean slate upon his arrival and the main risk to the Patriots with Floyd was more financial, as the remainder of his salary ($1.3 million) was a significant price to pay with three regular-season games and a playoff run ahead of them.

The Browns announced this weekend they planned to part ways with the 27-year-old wide receiver after he reportedly did not arrive to their facility on time.

The New England Patriots are adding arguably the most-athletically gifted wide receiver in the NFL. Schefter also reported that Gordon is healthy enough from his strained hamstring to play Sunday night at Detroit. New England didn't quite win the Super Bowl that season, but given that it went undefeated before that game, it was a pretty darn good bet to do so. One of the reasons they made a decision to move on was because he had reportedly broken the team's trust, a notion at which Gordon scoffed.

He missed training camp to receive treatment and his team were cautiously optimistic he would help them this season.

On the surface, Gordon would be an interesting addition to the Redskins, especially since Washington doesn't truly have a receiver of his caliber on their roster.

"I think it's obviously known that he's a freakish athlete", Patriots receiver Phillip Dorsett said moments after the trade became official.

"I hate to determine it a relief", Jackson said.

Now we have a clearer picture of how Gordon broke the team's trust.

This explains how Gordon was suddenly declared out on Saturday after going through the whole week of practice without appearing on the injury report. He caught 56 passes for 718 yards and five touchdowns. 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".
