The New England Patriots announced today that they have acquired WR Josh Gordon in a trade with the Cleveland Browns. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys, and San Francisco 49ers also spoke to Cleveland about a potential Gordon trade.

As Rapoport revealed, the deal is for a conditional fifth-round pick, which can mean a few different things.

Cleveland's decision to move on from Gordon came at the end of last week shortly after it was announced he would not play in the team's Week 2 game against the Saints. If Gordon is not active in at least 10 games, the Browns will send the Patriots a 2019 seventh round pick.

Schefter reports that Gordon's hamstring injury will not be enough to keep him out of action this Sunday, while Field Yates reports that recently-signed wideout Corey Coleman has been cut off the Patriots' 53-man roster to make room for Gordon.

If Gordon lands in New England and can stay on the field - and that's a big "if" - he could be an instant threat for the Patriots.

After initially saying they would release him, the Browns shifted to exploring trade options for Gordon.
