Tom Brady appears to be working out with Josh Gordon

The Patriots won’t be back to work as a team until training camp, but quarterback Tom Brady is doing some work on his own before the team gets back together next month.

Brady posted some video and pictures to Instagram showing him going through a workout on Tuesday, including a stop-motion video that shows him throwing to a receiver with his back to the camera. While his face remains hidden in the video, there’s another distant shot of his face in Brady’s Instagram story and several reporters have chimed in to say that it’s currently suspended wideout Josh Gordon.

Gordon caught 40 passes for 720 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games for the Patriots last season, but was suspended indefinitely in December. He was tendered a contract as a restricted free agent — Gordon signed the tender — and there has been word that he could be reinstated to the team in time to play in 2019.

It remains to be seen if that’s the case, but it appears Brady and Gordon are doing what they can to be on the same page when and if he gets the green light to return.

  1. Hmm. This is potentially good news and a potentially great addition, in a time of need, if Gordon has resolved his issues and can focus on football. Go Patriots!

  2. Josh Gordon has received a 2nd chance, a 3rd chance, and a 4th chance. Why would Chance #5 be any different? I doubt it will be, but I would love to see it.

  3. I dont know if Gordon will make it back to NFL football or not. But having the activity of working out with Brady to focus on will be good for his mental health and ability to fight his addiction issues.

  4. It’s never been clear to me what substances caused Gordon’s suspensions. If it was marijuana and the League is now supposedly rethinking its position on marijuana, then maybe Gordon will not be suspended again, or will receive only a short suspension. We don’t know the answer.

    In any case, it can’t be anything other than a positive for Gordon to receive support from teammates his social media posts have shown he cares about.

  5. I thought if you were suspended you were to have no contact with any team players or coaches?
    But maybe he is just embracing the TB12 method to get his life back on track.

  6. This story should horrify the rest of the NFL!! Welcome back FLASH as we embark on the STAIRWAY TO SEVEN!!

  7. Bill and Brady wouldn’t be wasting their time if they had a hint it’s a long suspension I’m thinking 4 to 6 Games and last straw type of situation

  8. If Tyrek Hill is back before Josh Gordon then the message I would take away would be the NFL considers pot smoking worse than domestic violence.

    Roger, I’m watching you.

  9. If they have Gordon for a full season, another Super Bowl appearance becomes much more likely. It’s so tough to get there that I never take it for granted even after all they’ve done.

    My understanding is that a suspension prevents a player from contacting team coaches and employees and visiting team facilities, but nothing prevents them from interacting with other players or working out with them privately.
