​Earning ​Tom Brady's trust is not a simple task. Many wide receivers in the past have failed to do so, and as a result, they are no longer on the ​New England Patriots

With that being said, one receiver who has entered Brady's circle of trust is fourth-year wide receiver Phillip Dorsett (at least according to Brady's Instagram).


The caption reads, "It's not the critic who counts," which most likely refers to Dorsett's documented past as a bust on the Indianapolis Colts.

What most likely promoted Brady's post was Dorsett's outstanding game versus the Houston Texans last Sunday. Against a stout Texans defense, Dorsett was able to go off for 66 yards and a touchdown, catching all seven target thrown to him.

Not only did Dorsett's performance earn him Brady's vote of confidence, but it also made him a popular fantasy football waiver wire pickup coming into Week 2. 

Leaving a struggling Colts team for the Patriots might have been just what Dorsett needed to revive his career.
