Browns GM John Dorsey ‘fine’ with Josh Gordon trade to Patriots

Earlier this season, the Cleveland Browns and general manager John Dorsey parted ways with star wide receiver Josh Gordon in a trade to the New England Patriots.

The decision has allowed Gordon to get a fresh start with New England. He has taken full advantage of the opportunity with the Patriots, quickly becoming a major piece of the puzzle offensively. Looking back at the move, Browns general manager John Dorsey has no regrets, according to Josh Edwards of 247 Sports.

“I never second guess, but that is about how far I am going to answer the question. I would address that more, but he works for the New England Patriots right now, and I am forbidden to talk about another team’s players,” Dorsey said.

When pressed further, he offered a bit more.

“I am fine with the trade.”

In seven games since joining the Patriots, Gordon has racked up 26 receptions for 477 yards and two touchdowns. He has picked it up over the last couple of weeks, posting a pair of 100 receiving yard performances in the last four games while tallying at least four catches in each contest over that stretch, as well as more than 80 receiving yards three times.

Meanwhile, the Browns have had their share of ups and down with their group of wide receivers with Jarvis Landry and Antonio Callaway leading the charge. Gordon’s presence could have provided another major asset in the passing game, but it truly felt like he needed a change of scenery to get his career back on track.

Nonetheless, the 27-year-old has a chance to be a major part of the puzzle for the Patriots in their quest to compete for the Super Bowl this season.
