Patriots 'close on a deal' for Josh Gordon, report says

Open this

When on the field, Gordon is one of the most gifted receivers in the game, but after recording 1,646 yards in 2013, he's played in just 11 games since due to off-field issues.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon sprints up the field after catching a pass during Wednesday's practice for this weekend's regular-season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland.

"Gordon was granted permission by the Browns to conduct a photo shoot for his "Flash" clothing line Friday evening, but instead, he was participating in the filming of what one source called a "hype video" meant to be released as a social-media commercial", Jackson wrote. But if you are anxious about this guy, that guy, or this or that, it just takes away from what your focus needs to be as an individual.

Gordon's tantalizing talent had caused the Browns to hang onto him while he dealt with drug and alcohol dependence dating his teens. I'm not going to project anything.

That type of performance from Gordon would be very useful indeed to the Patriots, and the possibility of it, in addition to his physical profile and skill set, has inspired comparisons to when the team traded for Randy Moss ahead of the 2007 season.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Gordon could be the solution. We'll see how it goes this week.

"He's not here yet, so I really don't want to talk about him yet", Patriots wide receiver Phillip Dorsett said. Streater was actually faster (4.46 to 4.52) and posted a better vertical (37.5 inches to 36) and more bench press reps (18 to 13) than Gordon at their respective pro days back in 2012. He's making $790,000 this season - a relatively low figure among star receivers - and if he stays clean and catches the ball, he could cash in as a restricted free agent after the season.

It's because wideouts need time - an offseason helps - to get into rhythm and on the same page as a quarterback and to learn the playbook.
