49ers miss on Josh Gordon after Patriots trade with Browns

Josh Gordon is reportedly being traded from the Browns to the Patriots for a conditional fifth-round pick.

Gordon was taken in the supplemental draft in the second round of the 2012 supplemental draft, showing off some promise as a rookie wideout. Gordon must be active f0r ten games as a member of the Patriots for the pick to come to Cleveland. Gordon has been one of the best players, when fit, since he first joined the team and instead of trading him in the off season, the Browns waited until after one week of the regular season to move on from the wide receiver.

After the news came down, it sent Twitter into an absolute frenzy, mainly because fans of nearly every National Football League team were hoping the Patriots wouldn't land him. 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.

Gordon has not played in a game that his team has won since November 23, 2014, when the Browns beat the Falcons 26-24. Gordon dealt with a hamstring injury before the regular season and was supposed to be on a limited snap count for the opener, though he ultimately played almost 70 snaps. "I always feel, since camp ended and we got our 53, we can win with the people we have".

Josh Gordon - at least according to Madden - is not as much of a risk.

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

The Browns declared Gordon out for Week 2 because of a hamstring injury and left him in Cleveland before the team departed for New Orleans for Sunday's loss to the Saints. That year, Gordon caught 87 passes for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in just 14 games. He was then suspended, again, for the entire 2015 and 2016 seasons. Also Gordon's troubled past and health issues are a legitimate concern.
