Josh Gordon Destroys Haters With Epic Instagram Message After Injury Against Jets

The New England Patriots signed Josh Gordon when no one else wanted him. The Cleveland Browns wanted to get rid of him, but head coach Bill Belichick used the best of the troubled player. Unfortunately, Gordon decided to leave the game to take care of his mental health. This decision was followed by a suspension, and he joined the Patriots right before the start of the regular season. The wide receiver adds nice depth to the chart, and he was brilliant in the first games of the regular season.

Gordon suffered a minor injury in the game against the New York Jets, but it was nothing serious. He took to Instagram to deliver a message for his fans and haters.

“He’s doing a great job,” quarterback Tom Brady said of Gordon. “We got him late last year into the season — Week 2 — and it’s a lot to pick up. It’s a hard offense to learn. You try to integrate a guy and whether it was Phillip (Dorsett) the year before or Josh or this year with Antonio, it’s a lot for those guys to learn. The more we’re together, like any team, the more comfortable we get.”

It looks like Gordon has finally found his home.

“It feels like I’m back home,” the veteran wide receiver said. “It’s a home environment — a family environment. I love these guys. They (rallied) around me to support me and show me love, and I appreciate that each and every day that I’m here. It’s just easy to come in and do what I have to do.

“Last year was kind of on the fly. I got traded (two weeks) into the season. I had to pick it up as I was going along. And with the injury at the same time, it was a lot to take on. This year, I have more familiarity with it. I got extra time in the offseason to study what I already knew, and then when I got in here, I was able to kind of pick up where I left off — and even better, I would say. So it’s pretty smooth right now.”

Even Belichick likes his work on the field.

“Josh has worked hard, and he’s made progress,” the Patriots coach said. “I think he still has a long way to go. We have 14 regular-season games left, so we’ll see how it goes.”
