FOXBORO -- Josh Gordon has only been a member of the Patriots a few weeks, but through two games it seems he's picked up the offense as well as he could given the circumstances.

The former Browns receiver has played in two games and has four catches for 82 yards and a touchdown.

Speaking to reporters in the Patriots locker room Friday, Gordon credited Tom Brady and the other Patriots receivers for helping him get up to speed with the playbook.

"I think that's greatly due, in part, to the amount of help I receive from my teammates here," he said. "Definitely Tom, all the receivers help bringing me along on a daily basis, the coaches just giving me all these resources I need. And me taking advantage of it and going home and studying it daily."

Gordon added: "[Brady and I] carve out time and we make it happen. We make sure that if there's something that might be a concern for him or me, he wants to know how I like to do something. Or if I want to know how he likes to do something, I just ask and he's open about it. And it makes it easy for me to communicate with him. Makes it a real natural-type of relationship."

The wide receiver also said his girlfriend has moved to the Foxboro area and his family is making it their home.

"I consider the people in this community and around it family," said Gordon. "They treat us nice everywhere we go. It's been a great experience."

Gordon and the Patriots will take on the Chiefs this Sunday, and after playing just 18 plays in each of his first two games, he could see an increased work load this week.
