It looks like Bill Belichick will be talking about Josh Gordon at his weekly press conference on Wednesday.

The trade between the Patriots and Browns involving Gordon is on the NFL wire Tuesday, which means the wide receiver is officially a Patriot.

Belichick wouldn't discuss Gordon the last two days noting the trade wasn't on the league wire and thus not officially completed, even though both the Browns and Patriots announced the trade. It would seem like Gordon needed to pass his physical in New England before that could happen.

The Patriots now have Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett, Cordarrelle Patterson and Gordon at wide receiver going into Week 3. If Gordon picks up the playbook quick enough, he could be on the field in Detroit Sunday night.
