FOXBORO, Mass. (WPRI) — After much speculation, the New England Patriots are dropping star wideout Josh Gordon, according to ESPN’s NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Gordon was placed on injured reserve last week after he suffered a knee injury in the Patriots’ Week 6 win over the New York Giants.
Known as “Flash,” Gordon joined the Patriots in September 2018 and played in 12 games before deciding to step away from football and focus on his mental health.
He returned at the beginning of the 2019 season and in six games reeled in 20 receptions for 287 yards and one touchdown for New England.
