Few defensive backs in the NFL are more talented than that of New England Patriots corner, Aqib Talib. So when he compares you to the elite of the elite, it’s quite a compliment.
“He reminds you of those names, the Calvin Johnsons, the Andre Johnsons, just bigger guys with little guys’ speed and quickness. He can turn an 8-yard curl into a touchdown in a heartbeat. Definitely a challenge,” Aqib Talib said of Gordon, via WEEI.
You can’t really receive much higher praise, considering a top defensive player in the league compared you to two of the leagues premier offensive talents.
We’ll see if Gordon can continue his hot streak against Talib this weekend when the Patriots host Gordon and the Browns.
