Why was Bill Belichick so tight-lipped - even more than he normally is, and that's saying something - about the Patriots' acquisition of troubled receiver Josh Gordon?

Perhaps the Patriots coach saw it as a transgression that the Browns put out a press release on the trade Monday before it actually had been finalized.

The Patriots then re-opened the deal and got the seventh-round pick that assured that had been conditional.
