Josh Gordon's huge impact for Patriots summed up in one great stat


The New England Patriots took a gamble in September when they traded a draft pick to the Cleveland Browns for wide receiver Josh Gordon, and so far the move has paid huge dividends. 

Here's a great stat that shows Gordon's tremendous impact on the Patriots' passing attack since he made his debut for the team in Week 4 against the Miami Dolphins.

Not too bad at all.

Gordon has 39 receptions and a team-leading 701 receiving yards despite not playing for the Patriots over the first three weeks. He also has three touchdown catches and a 70.1 receiving yards per game average. 

His best game in a Patriots uniform so far was in Week 9 versus the Green Bay Packers on "Sunday Night Football." Gordon hauled in five receptions for 130 yards and a touchdown to help the Pats beat Aaron Rodgers and company. 

Gordon is a restricted free agent after this season. There's still a lot of football to be played before free agency, but at this point it makes sense for both sides to work out a contract that keeps the talented wide receiver in New England for the foreseeable future.
