Tom Brady taking Josh Gordon under his wing

Transitioning to a new franchise can be difficult, but Josh Gordon is getting plenty of help from Tom Brady while adjusting to the New England Patriots.

According to Doug Kyed of NESN, the former Cleveland Browns wide receiver said he and Brady have a “very natural relationship.”

After the second week of the 2018 NFL campaign, Cleveland sent Gordon to the Patriots in exchange for a fifth-round pick.

By all accounts, he’s done nothing but impress since then.

Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels praised Gordon’s ability to pick up the system, and veteran Julian Edelman offered support for the embattled receiver. Gordon has found an encouraging environment.

The wideout was active in Week 4, then caught a touchdown — the 500th of Brady’s career — during New England’s win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Given Brady’s involvement in Gordon’s assimilation, the receiver’s quality start to his Patriots tenure surely isn’t a coincidence.
