Patriots tweak Josh Gordon trade as Belichick refuses to comment

Was Blake Bortles breakout legit? What to believe after two weeks of NFL games

Cleveland gave Josh Gordon chance after chance before finally deciding to cut him loose.

Gordon was set to be cut from Cleveland on Monday but was instead traded to New England for a reported fifth-round draft pick. By Tuesday evening, the receiver passed his physical and the trade was official on the NFL's transaction wire.

Listen to the complete podcast below, which also touches on the Patriots' struggles in Jacksonville.

The situation turned weird and confusing during the presser. which Belichick opened by saying the team was "still working through some transactions on the team, so we'll have those for you when we start practice". The coach then said the trade had to be finalized, which was confusing considering the National Football League seemed to finalize it on Tuesday and the team has been tweeting about the player for two days.

Belichick opened his press conference by stating that the team was still working on some transactions and would have those for the media when they began practice. That would seem to suggest that the deal is done.

"If it's done. When it's done", Belichick said when asked about fielding questions about the receiver.

What is still pending in the process?

Reporter: "What's the last step that has to be made so it's done?"

BB: I guess it has to be finalized, Tom (Curran).

I'll sign off on it. With all of the weapons at the Patriots disposal now, it is going to be very hard for teams to key on Rob Gronkowski like we saw the Jaguars do in Week 2. "I'll make sure everybody knows that, maybe that can expedite it by a few minutes".

Can you comment generally about Gordon's play?

Belichick: "No I'm not going to talk about players who are not actually, I would say, on our roster totally". When that happens, it happens.

Since the trade was on the wire, wasn't it finalized?

"There are terms that have to be met before the trade is finalized", Belichick said nebulously.

"This afternoon we informed Josh Gordon and his representatives that we are going to release him on Monday", general manager John Dorsey said in a statement.
