Josh Gordon has been out of the league since the 2019 campaign. He has officially been reinstated.
Adam Schefter broke the news that the Wide Receiver will be headed to Kansas City.
Before his suspension in 2019, Gordon was traded to the Seattle Seahawks. While in Seattle he played a total of five games. Receiving seven passes for 139 yards. He had 60 catches for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns in 17 games for the Patriots in 2018 and 2019. He entered the league as a Browns second-round pick in the 2012 supplemental draft. He had 137 catches for 2,451 yards and 14 touchdowns in his first two seasons, but served a 10-game suspension in 2014 and missed all of the next two seasons while suspended.
“We are grateful that the NFL appreciates the work that Josh put in and now he has earned another opportunity to be part of this league,” Gordon’s agent, Zac Hiller, told Schefter. “We are proud of Josh, and I know all the fans can’t wait to see him on Sundays.”
Josh Gordon is going to Kansas City, where he will have an elite Quarterback in Patrick Mahomes. This will be an interesting move for a Kansas City team that has been struggling early on this season. Until he learns the system and gets settled in, Gordon will most likely slot in as a backup Y receiver.
The former All-Pro is expected to be eligible to play as early as Week 4.
Gordon was suspended indefinitely in December 2019 for violations of the league’s policies on substance abuse and performance-enhancing substances. That was Gordon’s sixth suspension since the 2013 season and his fifth for some form of substance abuse, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
