Patriots trade for Josh Gordon from Browns

Recommended Posts

Wow

 

Why the hell would Cleveland include that late round pick contingency? That’s just moronic. All New England has to do is play him 9 games and rest him.

I hate how dumb the rest of the NFL is. How does nobody beat that offer? Why do teams just let the Pats get whatever they want?

How long does it take Gordon to learn the playbook and the system? I'm betting 5 weeks.

It's not a "risky" move for the Pats per-sé but this is definitely going to challenge the effectiveness of "The Patriot Way". They've never brought in a guy with the kind of substance abuse issues Gordon has had.

The Pats will put him on the field initially just to run a lot of simple routes that don't require him to have timing with Brady. But he's one of those guys who, just by virtue of being on the field, will open up the offense. Edelman and Gronk will benefit a lot from his presence.

Yeah but those simple routes will be sloppy as hell, specially if the play isn’t designed for him

I mean, a go route is a go route. He'll attract attention from a decent CB and a S at times, and that could open the field up elsewhere.

Plus, Cordarrelle Patterson has gotten a bunch of touches for the Patriots in the first couple weeks. I'm betting Gordon can pick it up just as fast, if not faster, as long as he's not high.

If he becomes a problem, I doubt the Patriots will think twice about cutting him. They'd lose a couple rounds of value in the draft pick they'd get back, risk-reward, blah blah

I think they'll be willing to tolerate that kind of thing if he makes the occasional big catch. Hell, they let Moss freelance a lot of the time.

You could count on Moss tho.

I was just being facetious about the playbook and system because of the conditional pick coming back
