First Look At WR Josh Gordon With The New England Patriots

Josh Gordon is officially a New England Patriot. Of course, the team already had a pretty notable No. 12, so Gordon is sporting another number.

The beleaguered former Cleveland Browns stand-out made his first appearance at Patriots practice today.

Over the last two days, Bill Belichick refused to comment on the high-profile acquisition over the last two days, as the trade was processing.

We may finally hear from him about Josh Gordon, after he was spotted practicing with the team for the first time.

Gordon will apparently wear No. 10 for the defending AFC Champions.

When healthy and active, Gordon is one of the most talented wide receivers in all of football.

However, you haven't been able to call him over the last few years. His last full season came in 2013, when he caught 86 passes for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns.

He played in five games the following season, but missed all of 2015 due to suspension, and elected to sit out in 2016. Last year, he returned to the game and looked solid in five games, but played in just one this year before the Browns announced that they were going to get rid of him.

Gordon caught one pass for a game-tying touchdown in Week 1 vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers. He reportedly aggravated a hamstring injury at a shoot for his clothing line, and was late showing up at the team's facilities on Saturday.
