National Football League trade rumors: Patriots have discussed WR Thomas

Josh Gordon is wowing Tom Brady

Josh Gordon is wowing Tom Brady

On Monday night, the rumors of Thomas being shipped out to New England began to heat up again when reports of the Patriots disciplining wide receiver Josh Gordon surfaced.

Bill Belichick had rumored interest in former Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate, who was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles for a third-round pick, and were reportedly in the mix to acquire former Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas, who landed with the Houston Texans for a fourth-rounder. But apparently, when Gordon started the game, the report appeared to be a work of fiction. In response to Rapoport's tweet, Tate responded, "What you talking about Willis?" NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Monday that the Lions were "fielding calls" for Tate, but he also noted a trade is unlikely unless the team is "blown away" by an offer (i.e. mid-round draft pick).

Musk pledged in the summer of 2017 that the company would be churning out 5,000 cars per week by the end of past year . Tesla is now generating cash, not consuming it and has largely managed to silence critics for the time being.

Gordon sidestepped the report from NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, who detailed Gordon would be kept off the field for several series. The veteran wide receiver had played his entire career with the Broncos, but has recently been the center of a variety of different trade rumors, including potentially with the New England Patriots. New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels drafted Thomas during his short stint as head coach of the Broncos, and could reunite with No. 88 in Foxborough, MA. This season, Thomas (6-3, 229) has recorded 36 receptions for 402 yards (11.2 avg.) and three touchdowns in eight games with Denver. Last year, the 30-year-old fell 51 yards shy of extending his five-season streak of posting at least 1,000 receiving yards.
