The Patriots are finalizing a deal to trade for Gordon, according to a report. He missed training camp to receive treatment and the Browns were cautiously optimistic he would help them this season.
But now, not only will the Eagles wide receiving corps have to look elsewhere to replace Wallace, but they will also have a front row seat to watch a potential Super Bowl foe get a whole lot better for not much compensation. He has recorded 127 receptions for 1,755 yards and 10 touchdowns.
The Cleveland Browns made a decision to finally part ways with Josh Gordon this weekend after standing behind him since 2012.
New England is thin at wide receiver and will be without Julian Edelman for two more games as he finishes serving his four-game suspension for violating the league's performance enhancing drug policy.
Despite his past issues, Gordon was welcomed back by the Browns late last season.
He logged a lone catch for 17 yards and a score in Week 1 against the Steelers before sitting out Sunday's loss to the Saints with a hamstring injury.
"We'll see how it goes this week", Brady said, "and hopefully he can work hard, put the team first, and end up helping us in any role that he can find for himself on the team".
"I always think trust is whatever receiver is out there, you know, you tell them to run a certain route and they run it the way that you talked about it, the ball is thrown, it's caught, it's a positive play and then you do it again", Brady said.
Obviously, the Patriots are in desperate need of a dynamic receiver to stretch the field, and will be all season.
