The New England Patriots managed to upgrade their roster with the acquisition of former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon. As a result, it appears wide receiver Corey Coleman could find himself on the market yet again.

Coleman and Brown had been teammates in Cleveland. However, according to ESPN's Field Yates, that will not be the case in New England.

Coleman has endured a bit of a rough stretch as of late. The former first-round pick has been cut by the Buffalo Bills and the Patriots since parting ways with the Browns.

The rich have gotten richer. The Patriots have been infatuated with former Browns' players throughout the offseason. However, the fact that they were able to acquire Gordon in exchange for a fifth-round pick still came as a bit of a surprise.

Cleveland had stuck with their star player for quite some time as he worked to take care of his personal issues of the field while serving a number of severe suspensions. There was plenty of optimism that they finally saw some light at the end of the tunnel. However, recent reports about a hamstring tweak resulted in the Browns finally decided to let him go.

New England has had some trouble shoring up depth in their receiving corps, and it has shown through the first two games of the 2018 NFL season. Coleman's departure was almost inevitable with Gordon undoubtedly arriving as the most talented player in the group. More importantly, the reports suggest that the injured hamstring will not affect his availability for Week 3.

The Patriots are hoping they can emulate the type of success they had with Hall of Famer Randy Moss. Much like Moss, Gordon has the ceiling of a top-5 receiver in the NFL.
