"I wouldn't talk about another player's personal or injury situations, so I'm not going to do that", Belichick said. Now, I'll give them some credit only if Gordon becomes a Trojan Horse and wrecks the entire franchise. All it cost them was a fifth-round pick, and they got a seventh-rounder in the deal as well.
The trade bringing Gordon, who played in just 11 games with the Cleveland Browns since 2013 due to National Football League suspensions, was announced by both teams on Monday.
Especially when you're talking about a Detroit defense averaging 39 points against per game, and the fact that the Patriots dressed just three pass-catching wideouts - Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett, and Cordarrelle Patterson - last week in a 31-20 loss that saw an explosively-angry Brady limited when it came to passing options on the outside.
Following his trade to the New England Patriots from the Cleveland Browns on Monday, questions about how well he'll fit in under the umbrella of coach Bill Belichick and in the offense with future Hall-of-Fame quarterback Tom Brady have likewise endured. "That's any time you get new players, that's what you try to do". Belichick, however, admitted that Gordon has done well in this first week in Foxboro, but tempered the expectations saying, "We'll see how it goes". 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. "Look, he's been here for a few days, so we're working at it every day, and every day you try to make improvements", Brady said on this afternoon to the media.
