Patriots get a late-round draft pick back from the Josh Gordon trade

Pats Pulpit - 02-19


In mid-September 2018, the New England Patriots acquired troubled but immensely talented wide receiver Josh Gordon via trade from the Cleveland Browns. The Patriots, sitting at a 1-1 record at the time, sent a fifth-round draft pick to Cleveland in order to acquire Gordon as well as a conditional seventh-round selection. Conditions for that late-round pick were never specified — but it did not matter.
