"It's been a transition and I love it already," Dorsett said, via WEEI.com. "It's going to be a definite transition learning the playbook and everything, but like I said before, I'm the person for it."
The Patriots' offense is notoriously tough to pick up on the fly. Even veteran receivers have struggled with the nuances of playing with Tom Brady. Dorsett, however, says he's been picking up the play book since the trade.
"I wouldn't say [it's been] overwhelming. I think I'm a pretty smart guy," he said. "Of course, they throw a lot at your first, but I'm just in it. You have to be in it. Like you said, I just go back to the hotel and study as much as I can until I get tired. And then, I try to study more. At the end of the day, I think it'll be worth it."
Added Dorsett: "I'm just learning now. I'll learn a lot more. I'm getting reps in there now. The more I learn, the more reps I'll get."
How much -- if at all -- he'll play Thursday night remains to be seen.
With Julian Edelman's season-ending injury shuffling Brady's receiving corps, the addition of Dorsett -- who was battling for the No. 3 job in Indy -- adds another option on the outside. Dorsett is also likely to be an option on punt returns this season.
"I don't really put that much pressure on myself," he said.
