With just under four months until training camp, the future of wide receiver Josh Gordon remains unidentified inside and out of the Patriots locker area.
Quarterback Tom Brady and gordon worked together last week, based on the Instagram of Brady. However, the wideout stays suspended for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy in December.

Count Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman as one of those that doesn’t know if — or when — the group will be rejoined by Gordon.
“it is a lifetime situation and you’re pulling for him… to get better,” Edelman said Wednesday, through Barstool Sports. “And selfishly, I want him because he is a really good football player and that he will help us.
“I really don’t know anything (about whether Gordon is going to probably be reinstated) going into it. Like, legit. I’ve asked 30 people inside the organization and outside,’Would you understand what’s going to happen?’ And nobody knows not 1 thing. Thus, we’re just kind of waiting to see what the situation are going to be with him since he would be a excellent tool and sitting. He balls.”
Gordon was expected to make an application for reinstatement in May, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, but there hasn’t been any update on his status. Gordon didn’t attend the Patriots’ Super Bowl ring ceremony before in June and hasn’t made any comments, but stays active.
