During a Tuesday conference call, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels shed some light on how far Josh Gordon has come in catching up to the rest of the Patriots offense since he was traded from the Cleveland Browns.
McDaniels praised the work that Gordon has put in, but stressed that he and the Patriots "still in the growing phase" of acclimating him into the offense.
"I don't think we've been together long enough to say he has a foundation that's completely finished," McDaniels said. "We're gonna continue to work on that each week."
While the Patriots offense is known for being famously difficult for receivers to grasp, Gordon has bucked the trend by seeing the field early in his tenure -- as well as getting targets from Tom Brady in key situations. Gordon is coming off a 5-130-1 line against the Packers, so things continue to trend up for Gordon in this offense.

Week 10 at Green Bay Packers
The Patriots only have the eighth-highest implied team total of the Sunday slate at 26.5 points, a departure from their usual spot near the top of that weekly list. Perhaps some respect from the oddsmakers against this Titans defense, but Tennessee is only 28th in aFPA to WRs. And hello, Josh Gordon! His role continues to grow, with ten targets last week. He's playing full starter snaps now as well, and expect Bill Belichick to scheme Gordon to see coverage against former Patriots corner and now weekly receiver doormat Malcolm Butler. Gordon is a solid WR2 for Week 10.
