The New England Patriots announced today that they have acquired WR Josh Gordon in a trade with the Cleveland Browns.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted the news Monday afternoon. Before Gordon gets cut on Monday, NFL teams are going to be in hot pursuit of the star wideout in hopes that he can get his act together off the field and bring his new team success on the field. "We wish Josh well", Browns general manager John Dorsey said in a statement. The Patriots and the Browns have agreed to a trade.

The Browns provided no details behind their decision to part ways with Gordon, but a source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen on Saturday that Gordon broke the team's "trust" when he reported to the facility Saturday with a hamstring issue after being a full participant in practice all week.

The Patriots are sending a conditional fifth-round draft choice to the Browns for Gordon. Coleman signed as a free agent last Tuesday and practiced with New England leading up to its 31-20 loss Sunday at Jacksonville.

He caught 56 passes for 718 yards and five touchdowns. He's played just 11 games since he led the league in receiving yards and made first-team All-Pro in the 2013 season.

His catch against Pittsburgh in a steady rain proved, though, why Cleveland stuck by him for so long.
