The Patriots passing game definitely hasn't been one of the team's strengths this year.

The Patriots saw first hand back in 2013 how good Gordon is, as he recorded seven receptions for 151 yards and a touchdown in a game against the Patriots in Cleveland.

The New England Patriots made the big-splash acquisition earlier this week, landing Cleveland Browns star wide receiver Josh Gordon.

The Browns had had enough and dealt Gordon to New England for a fifth-round pick Monday. Patriots fans (for the most part) are celebrating the newest weapon for Tom Brady, while fantasy football owners who held Gordon are ecstatic. "I've never met Josh personally, just like I hadn't met some of the guys that have come in the last couple weeks".

"Hopefully, he can work hard, put the team first and end up helping us in a role that he can find for himself on the team".

Gordon was a limited participant in practice with a hamstring issue and didn't speak with the media afterward. "I think that it's all about him getting comfortable". "I'm just going to try to go be the positive, enthusiastic leader that I am and try to be a great quarterback and try to embrace whoever's on the team". Even Rob Gronkowski said Wednesday, "there really isn't too much excitement" among the Patriots, not even at the prospect of playing on the same field as a physically gifted player like Gordon.

"I know he was a monster then, and he's still a monster now", linebacker Dont'a Hightower said. It's very possible we see him step on the field this week against the Detroit Lions. For all intents and purposes, the blockbuster trade is official.

"If and when it happens, I'm happy to talk about it", Belichick said in his Wednesday press conference.
