Bill Belichick is Worsening Media Relations by Lying About Josh Gordon Deal

During an interview with Jim Gray on Westwood One Radio this week, the Patriots quarterback said he wants to practice with Gordon before he puts any expectations on his newest teammate. You know all these things need to play themselves out. I think he's going to have his hands full. "Again, I think unfortunately the last time I saw him, he caught a slant that he's probably still running, just a really huge play for them when he was in Cleveland", Patricia said.

The proximity to Brady may be an effort to get the receiver up to speed while making sure Gordon doesn't spin out of control. It appears the Patriots will get Gordon and the Browns' seventh-round pick in exchange for the Patriots' fifth-round pick. Despite both the Patriots and the Browns announcing the deal, as well as it being on the NFL's transfer wire, Bill Belichick says it's not quite done yet. "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. 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". He was limited with a hamstring issue, an injury that was widely reported in the days leading up to his trade to the Patriots.

Chris Hogan promised he'd be there to answer any of Gordon's questions, just like Hogan would do for any other player. "And when those are completed, then we'll have a completed trade".

United have made little impact in the Champions League since De Gea joined them seven years ago - their best effort was to reach the last eight under David Moyes in 2013-14.

Belichick not talking about a player who is listed on the official roster is unusual even for Patriots standards.

"I'm not going to talk about players that aren't actually on our roster totally", Belichick said. The coach then said the trade had to be finalized, even though the National Football League seemed to finalize it on Tuesday and both teams issued press releases about the deal. "And when those are completed, then we'll have a completed trade".
