The New England Patriots have a knack for obtaining talented players on the cheap. Head coach Bill Belichick and Co. have struck again after trading for Cleveland Browns wide receiver, Josh Gordon, for a conditional fifth-round pick.
Gordon goes from a franchise that has won once in two years to a brilliantly-run Patriots organization that is Super Bowl-bound every year.
As such, Twitter is exploding with commentary.
Josh Gordon is gonna catch like 1,600 yards and 12 touchdowns. https://t.co/XbUdxhkRZq

In a quintessential Patriots move, New England is sending a conditional 5th round pick to the Browns for Josh Gordon. Belichick wouldnt send Jimmy G to Cleveland but buys low on yet another ex-Brown

Patriots WR Josh Gordon (strained hamstring) will play Sunday vs. Lions, per @AdamSchefter.

We all knew Josh Gordon was eventually going to be a New England Patriot, right?

3 hours ago: “josh Gordon will be traded for serious compensation”
Now: “josh Gordon to Pats for fifth round pick”
Absolutely fantastic can’t believe the Browns have done it again

@evansilva so the Browns 1st are going to cut Josh Gordon, then say they'll trade him but not to the AFC…. then they trade him to the Patriots? Lunacy.
