Josh Gordon has officially applied for reinstatement to the NFL following his latest suspension. Gordon, played 11 games with the Patriots last season after being acquired in a trade with the Cleveland Browns, but was suspended again for violating the leagues substance abuse policy. Gordon has been suspended five times since entering the league in 2012. He has repeatedly violated the terms of his reinstatement and his chances may be running out. The Patriots organization and players have been very supportive of Gordon, and are currently paying for his treatment. We can only hope that Gordon truly got the help he was looking for, and if he is reinstated, the Patriots will welcome him back with open arms.
Gordon has kept himself in incredible shape and had the chance to spend some time working with Tom Brady in the offseason.
If Gordon is reinstated [given the way the NFL handled other recent suspension situations regarding WRs, why wouldn't he be?], that would give Tom Brady six different WRs who are at least 6-3.
Given that on most teams in his career he barely even had one such WR, it's notable. https://t.co/ZQYs7PAWGY
