Patriots WR Gordon discusses playing with Brady

New England Patriots wide receiver Josh Gordon has enjoyed playing with Tom Brady.

The Patriots acquired the 27-year-old from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a late-round draft choice in mid-September.

Gordon discussed how he felt sharing a locker room with New England's star quarterback when he met with reporters on Thursday.

"It's good to be able to be in such close proximity to learn from him. I look up to the guy," Gordon said, via ESPN. "He's done everything right, so I just enjoy the time being around him."

Gordon has caught 34 passes for 605 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games with the Patriots, who hold a 9-3 record this season. He said he has been impressed by Brady's work ethic during his time with the team.

"I came in with the idea he was a hard-working guy, and he's done nothing but show that continuously and consistently," Gordon said. "He enjoys the game and everything that comes with it."

Brady has completed 65.9 per cent of his passes and thrown for 20 touchdowns, along with eight interceptions, in 2018.

The Patriots will face the Dolphins in Miami in week 14 action on Sunday.
