Either by Belichickian design or a simple twist of fate, troubled wide receiver Josh Gordon is now locker mates with Tom Brady.
The arrangement was noticed quickly by every single Patriots beat writer who walked into the locker room at Gillette Stadium on Wednesday afternoon following the team’s practice in Foxboro, albeit via slightly different wording.

Thee locker next to Tom Brady’s was once occupied by Randy Moss. This could mean bad things for the rest of the NFL.
If Tom can make him play half as good as Randy Moss did in New England, the NFL is now officially on notice.
