Josh Gordon Everything Thread

Recommended Posts

 

Quote

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports suspended free agent Josh Gordon expects a decision on his reinstatement application within the next 30 days. 

Fowler reports it will be commissioner Roger Goodell presiding. If 29-year-old Gordon gets the go-ahead, he will be an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career. On his ninth NFL life, Gordon nevertheless seems likely to get yet another chance.

Lot of trust involved leaving something out there just hanging like that.

My guess is since he couldn’t make it two years with Pats he is about done. Rumors here are he was high and drunk at team meetings in the morning. Then decided to just not show up on time. Sad given the level of pay he could get. Pissed it all away.

One thing in Gordon's favor is a more relaxed view of pot.  Has the rules changed?  I read somewhere the league isn't going to be as strict on pot, which in the past has been his biggest albatross.

Irrelevant. He's had what, 10,000 chances at this point & can't get his #### together. Would you expect your employer to keep giving you your job back if you kept coming in high or drunk? Of course not. He needs to find another line of work. You blew your chances to play a game for a living.

I'm not one of the top one hundred performers in the world at my field, so no I don't expect my spot to stay open through my addiction.  Gordon is.  That's what happens when you're a professional athlete.

No, he is not anymore. He has been out of football.

 

I'd say there a better than 90% chance he's playing somewhere this year......if there is a this year.

That's not what people who are in charge of football teams think.  I trust them just a bit more than random internet guy 457.

Rotoworld take:

Quote

Seahawks re-signed WR Josh Gordon to a one-year, $1 million contract.

Gordon is currently suspended for violating both the league's substance-abuse and PED policies but is awaiting results from the league after applying for reinstatement. The 29-year-old merely saw 11 targets in five games (and 39% snaps) with the Seahawks last year but does offer a veteran presence behind both Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf. Serving his sixth suspension since 2013, Gordon remains a risky flier in the final rounds of any format.

Jokes about the undying Gordon topic aside, I hope this means Gordon is clean & sober, and had a chance to get his life back together. He seems like a decent human being. Being an addict doesn’t make someone a bad person - it’s a disease like many others. 

i won’t touch him in FF tho.

I'm not sure Gordon really provides what I would call a "veteran presence".

I thought I'd read that - they should. I don't know if his positive was pot though. One of the failed tests was PEDs.
