New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady sees a wide receiver Josh Gordon who is “eager to get in there and learn”
The New England Patriots made a blockbuster trade last week when it landed the former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon and seventh-rounder pick in the 2019 NFL Draft in exchange for a 2019 fifth-round selection. It looks like superstar quarterback Tom Brady is already liking what he perceives from his new receiver.
The former r Baylor University star has plenty to catch up on should he hopes to make an impact in his new team. Brady claimed that Gordon has done everything he can to adapt to his new environment, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk:
“[He’s] really been eager to get in there and learn everything we’re doing and you know, just try to acclimate himself to what the program is,” Brady said.
It is encouraging to see that Gordon, who was selected by the Browns in the second round of the 2012 NFL Supplemental Draft, has already made a strong impression on the veteran quarterback. However, another report claims that Tom Brady would not assess on his performance so far. This has wrapped up in number of speculation regarding what kind of role Gordon can take on in the passing game.
There is no doubt that Gordon is the most talented wide receiver in the Patriots roster this season. Gordon has trumped out a number elite talents when he was actually able to fit in. However, the 27-year-old receiver will need to get on the same chapter as everyone else should he aspire to have some success this season.
Professional American football players like tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Chris Hogan have already earn Tom Brady’s respect. So, Gordon will have to show he is up to the job for him to build a trust with the star quarterback this 2018 NFL season.
