Trade now agreed to: Patriots are sending Cleveland a 5th-round pick and if Gordon isn't active for 10 games, Patriots get back a late-round pick from Browns, sources tell ESPN.
As @rapsheet reported, Patriots were closing in on trade for Gordon.
Trade now official.

Isn’t it great to be a Patriots fan?! I mean, the national media had less than a day to spew their “The Patriots Are Done” takes before Bill went out and got us a deep threat! Brady and the Patriots are no stranger to ugly September losses, so even if there was just a smidge of doubt about this team after yesterday’s performance, the acquisition of Josh Gordon will put those to bed. Flash Gordon is a god damn stud, and there is no better coach, or organization to get him back on the right track.
This offense that started the season looking pretty bleak, has all of a sudden become a powerhouse of talent, especially when Jules comes back. Between the receiving core of Gronk, Jules, Gordon, and Hogan, combined with White, Michel, and Burkhead out of the backfield, I think it is safe to say that this is a lineup that Brady can cook with. The old adage still rings true, even after questionable play calling late against Jacksonville….”In Bill We Trust.” Once again the Patriots come out on top, but is it really that surprising?
