Josh Gordon was released yesterday and now there are reports that Josh Gordon’s work ethic is being questioned.
Tom Curran of NBCSportsBoston.com said this morning on PFT Live that there were rumblings in New England about the team having problems with Gordon being late to meetings, coaches having a hard time locating him, and generally Gordon not displaying the kind of work ethic that Bill Belichick demands.
“He was showing signs of undependability,” Curran said of Gordon.
I am kind of surprised by this because by putting this information out there you would think the team is trying to damage his already questionable reputation. Which you would think that you would want Gordon going to a worse team so they cannot use him against you later down the road.
Gordon had 20 receptions on the year for 287 yards in the six games he started.
There was a lot of bad things coming out of New England in regards to Gordon. They were trying to make him look like he was going down the wrong path again. I have not heard one bad thing about the kid, and to be honest, I was upset with the report. I am glad a team gave him a chance, because let’s face it the kid is a big time playmaker. His relationship with his new QB will be huge for him. I am glad he got a chance to do it again, and the media did not turn the teams away from him. – Damond Talbot – Owner
