The Patriots sure seem excited about the addition of Josh Gordon.
Watch above for a new hype video on the team’s Instagram page, with a caption of simply “Coming soon?” It begins with a throw from Tom Brady, then dissolves into a ball that Gordon comes down with for a spectacular touchdown catch.
At the end of the day, it’s a harmless Instagram video and may not mean much in the long run. But it wouldn’t exactly be the best look if the team hyped Brady-to-Gordon up like this, only for the receiver to fizzle out.
The video shows a level of confidence that the team can turn the enigmatic receiver into the player he showed he can be in 2013. They don’t make videos like this for every receiver they bring in.
Brady told Westwood One’s Jim Gray in a Monday night interview that he simply hopes Gordon “puts the team first” and that he just wants to be a supportive teammate for the team’s newest addition. If the receiver can straighten out off the field, it could pay massive dividends for Brady and the Patriots on it.
