Peter King critical of Patriots over Josh Gordon trade

The then signed on as a free agent with the Patriots but was cut when New England traded for Josh Gordon this week. This means the Patriots are giving up very little for Gordon, effectively draft capital equivalent to a sixth-round draft pick.

As Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal revealed, Gordon posted a photo of Boston Celtics guard Terry Rozier in a Drew Bledsoe jersey shortly after the news.
