“Josh Gordon has worked hard. He’s a smart kid. He’s got quite a bit of experience. He’s obviously played in a lot of different systems with different coordinators and so forth. So I think one way or the other, he’s probably experienced things that we’re doing in one of those systems,” HC Bill Belichick said. “He’s been able to pick things up quickly and has experience doing different things. So it was good to get him out there. We’ll just see how it goes, take it week to week.”
The story said Belichick has been tight-lipped about Gordon before the quote above. It's not the first time it's been reported that Gordon is picking things up quickly. Look for his role to expand going forward.
