Bill Belichick Praises Josh Gordon, 'Smart Kid, Works Hard'

Detroit Lions head football coach Matt Patricia left and New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick chat during a break at the NFL owners meetings Tuesday

So head coach Bill Belichick could finally comment on the trade and Gordon's polarizing addition to the Patriots roster.

Seeing Gordon's locker next to Brady certainly seemed intentional.

The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Gordon is a physical marvel, but he hasn't produced in the NFL since a breakout 2013 season that saw him lead the league in receiving yards. Not bad, according to Belichick.

"I think different players are on different work portions of practice", Brady said. Gordon has been limited with a hamstring injury, but so far, the 27-year-old has left a good first impression.

"(He's) really been eager to get in there and learn everything we're doing and just try to acclimate himself to what the program is", Brady said. "So even if you're next to me or you're across or down or defense, I think it's just important to try to get to know everybody in whatever way you possibly can".

Belichick did say that Gordon has done well picking up the offense in his few days in New England, complimenting the receiver for his ability to work at learning the offense. It is not known if he will suit up against the Detroit Lions on Sunday night. For reference, Kenny Britt played two snaps in his Patriots debut after signing with the team last December.

It's clear that the Brady-Gordon connection is it the early stages. And I think a lot of people look at him... and by human standards, he's in great shape - not the same thing as being in football shape. We're out there, everyone who is out there is working hard, trying to practice, doing what they need to do understand the playbook, to understand route, to understand how we do things. "We're just trying to get on the same page".
