Frankly the Dolphins biggest problem has always been Rob Gronkowski so Gordon won't disrupt that need too much as the Dolphins still need to take care of Gronkowski.

Leonard Fournette is expected to return to the practice field Wednesday after dealing with a hamstring injury, the team announced.

The Browns had had enough and dealt Gordon to New England for a fifth-round pick Monday. "I think that it's all about him getting comfortable". No, you know what? "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".

Gordon's status will be one to watch throughout the week. "If it's a flip of the coin and 50-50, sometimes it's right, sometimes it's wrong, I mean nobody can really depend on that. I'm sure he's had that conversation with coach", linebacker Dont'a Hightower said. You want to know that the guys you're lining up next to that they got it. This could help Gordon get his career back on track. "But if you're anxious about this guy or that guy or this or that, you know, it just takes away from what your focus needs to be as an individual".

After Bill Belichick dragged his feet for a few days in waiting to confirm the Gordon deal, the new Patriots receiver was indeed at practice Wednesday and had a spot with his name on it in the locker room.

The addition of Josh Gordon is a very scary one for upcoming opponents of the Patriots.

"Unfortunately the last time I saw him", Patricia said. The trade was finalized Tuesday, according to the NFL. "I'm not going to talk about it until it's fully done then maybe I'll talk about it'".

For the Patriots, there is certainly a risk when it comes to trading for Gordon, but the upside of what he can bring to the team is well worth it.
