The Cleveland Browns chose to finally part ways with Josh Gordon this weekend after standing behind him since 2012.
Still, the move can be labeled as a low risk for the Patriots, especially considering what they sent back to the Browns.

At least 8 to 10 teams called the Browns inquiring about potentially trading for Gordon, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson, after the Browns announced Saturday that they meant to release Gordon on Monday.
It looks like the revolving door at wide receiver will continue spinning for the Patriots. The Browns are now looking to trade Gordon and according to Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Redskins are "potentially" interested in trading for him. He's also a restricted free agent next season, which could give the 49ers the opportunity to pursue him with their ample salary cap space if he performs well in New England. With Julian Edelman starting the season on a four-game suspension, Phillip Dorsett, Chris Hogan and Cordarrelle Patterson have been the only wide receivers with catches thus far, as the team cut ties in the offseason with a number of noteworthy veteran players, including Kenny Britt, Eric Decker, Jordan Matthews and Malcolm Mitchell. He missed training camp to receive treatment and the Browns were cautiously optimistic he would help them this season.
Gordon is officially headed to the Patriots the Browns announced Monday.
Coach McCarthy on Rodgers’ recovery from knee injury
Aaron Rodgers is not practicing again today, as the Green Bay Packers' star quarterback continues to recover from his knee injury. Rodgers' status will be one to monitor once we get closer to Sunday's game. "We're taking things day by day".
"I hate to determine it a relief", Jackson said. "This place will always feel like home to me". "We see what he does when he's on the field".
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. He has recorded 127 receptions for 1,755 yards and 10 touchdowns. He missed the entire 2015 and 2016 seasons before returning a year ago. In only 14 games during that 2013 campaign, which was his second in the NFL, he led the league in receiving yards, even with his Browns trotting out the decidedly unimpressive quarterback trio of Jason Campbell, Brian Hoyer and Brandon Weeden.
I mean, we all knew that's where this was heading, didn't we?
