Tom Brady recently got some work in with a surprising partner.
The Patriots quarterback posted a video to Instagram on Wednesday that showed him throwing to suspended wide receiver Josh Gordon.
The fact that the two are practicing together is an indication that Gordon will be factored in the team’s plans in 2019.
Gordon, who is serving an indefinite suspension for violating the terms of his reinstatement into the NFL, signed his restricted free-agent tender with New England in April and is scheduled to earn a base salary of $2.025 million should he be reinstated.
He could be permitted to play as early the start of training camp, though there has been no recent update on Gordon’s status.
The Patriots were reportedly paying for him to receive drug treatment at an inpatient facility in Florida earlier this year and working with the NFL and NFLPA to get him help.
Gordon, 27, caught 40 passes for 720 yards with three touchdowns in 11 games last season for the Patriots. He also caught one 17-yard touchdown pass with the Browns before he was traded to New England.
