Can someone reach out to Soulfly? I’m more worried about him than I Gordon.

Kind of ironic isn't it? NFL tells Gordon to lay off the weed and he can't. Owner of this website tells you to lay off your hot takes and you can't.

You've never seen my wife reach for the last pizza slice.

A comp pick? What kind of contract do you think he signs this offseason? Does the team signing him now, sign no one else?

He could offset a different pick they would otherwise have lost.  Opportunity cost and all.

Gordon should go to a team next year that has a strong armed quarterback who  not as risk averse as Brady.  A good offensive line would also help allow him to run deeper routes.

As a Gordon owner, my perfect landing spot for him would be Green Bay (also on this list)... and on paper it looks like an ideal setup.  However, I have been to Green Bay and am convinced there is nothing to do there but eat Cheese Curds and smoke weed.  Gordon doesn't seem like a cheese curd guy.  For his sake and the longevity of his career... I hope he goes somewhere wtih a support system to keep him off the Devil's Lettuce.

nobody is getting a comp pick for josh gordon

Compensatory picks are based on annual contract value. Here is a list of the free agent signings and what picks they are projected for in the 2020 draft . . .

Jamison Crowder - $9.5 million - 4
John Brown - $9 million - 4
Cole Beasley - $7.25 million - 5
Cordarrelle Patterson - $5 million - 6

Here is the list of what players actually qualified for from the 2019 draft . . .

Sammy Watkins - $15.8 million - 3
Donte Montcrief - $9.6 million - 4
Taylor Gabriel - $6.5 million - 5
Danny Amendola - $6 million - 5
Ryan Grant - $5 million - 6

You don't think Gordon could sign even a one year deal somewhere that would pay him enough to qualify for a compensatory pick?

Everyone's a cheese curd guy after smoking some weed.

How many times is he going to remain relevant? 

To the league or to fantasy conversations?  I'm a big fan of Gordon's.  I think he was dealt a bad hand with the marijuana thing and I have never understood the league's stance on the drug.  We would rather get people addicted to opioids than allow them to manage their pain/anxiety through smoking some weed.  

Fantasy relevance will remain, so long as he is a talented 28 year old wide receiver with potential.

Once. For a year. But that will likely be enough for people / teams to think that he can be that player again.

Stories coming out of NE now that (allegedly) JG was late to meetings, was hard to locate, may not have gone all out in practice, and had developed a questionable work ethic. Who knows how valid those claims are.

According to PFF, of the 70 receivers that had at least 30 targets this season, they ranked Gordon 58th.

Frankly, I''m getting tired of JG.

If the team that gave him up signed no one in FA, sure. How big do you think his contract will be? And will the team thay let's him walk sign no one?

Looking at what free agents WR’s have been getting (and the names on that list), someone will probably offer him a one year deal for $8-10 million. 

Compensatory picks are awarded based on net adds and losses. It’s impossible at this point to speculate if he could turn into a pick but he would be used in the pick determination process. So depending upon what he signs for, he could be spotted at the 4th or 5th round level in the pick determination formula.

one year 8-10 million is absurd. Guy hasnt played 16 games since 2012, with substance abuse problems, mental illness, and wasnt very effective on the Patriots- where presumed turd wrs go to have exceptional seasons

Furthermore, the fact that NE let him walk when he could be a compensation pick speaks volumes to me; they are the masters at manipulating the comp pick system

What WR are getting is absurd. Guys like Amendola and Gabriel were $6 million a year and Moncrief and Crowder were $9-10 million. Even $6 million a year wold get a credit of a fifth round pick in the compensatory ledger. 

It only takes one team to think Gordon can return to his glory days in Cleveland. I don’t think the risk of suspension would be a deal breaker. If he gets suspended, the team doesn’t have to pay him. There are plenty of dumb teams out there. Teams like the Bengals, Raiders, or Redskins come to mind. I wouldn’t go to great lengths to sign him, but I am not an NFL GM.

You sell Green Bay and all of Wisconsin short.  There is also drunk driving, particularly on ice, ice fishing, bowling, and hogging.

Bears can't use the ones they have now, Oakland and Pittsburgh I can see. 

I don't see Gordon doing much better than 50-60 yds a week no matter where he ends up. 

Gordon would be a perfect fit for the Bears. He'd pretend to get open and Trubisky would pretend he was looking for him.

A team has claimed him 

GB could be a nice one... get a few games out of him. The rest of their WRs have been pretty pedestrian, aside from Lazard doing ok for a game or two. Gordon would compliment Adams well

WR Josh Gordon may have been claimed on Friday. But not by the #Dolphins, who had first dibs on the waiver wire https://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-dolphins/fl-sp-dolphins-josh-gordon-20191101-3omkblkierewvcaj3wpi46mxsu-story.html …

By my research, MIA, DAL, OAK, PHI, ATL, BUF, WAS, NYG, KC, TEN, TB, NOS, CHI, LAC all out so far.
We may get there by eliminating the teams before we get an announcement from the actual team.

The #Seahawks have claimed former #Patriots WR Josh Gordon, source said. QB Russell Wilson gets his wish.

DK and JG is the dream but JG suffers from some sort of social anxiety where he self sabotages.  

Unfortunately I think this ends like his other stops, he'll tease then disappoint and waste time/hope/effort.

I agree.

But from a fantasy standpoint, it means yet another “sell” window has opened for owners still holding the bag.

Seahawks claimed Gordon 

This is a kind of weird move.   The Seahawks shy away from controversy in the locker room and preach competition in practices.   The Pats said part of the reason for Gordon's release was that he had a poor work ethic.   Also, the Seahawks only throw 25 or so times a game.   If you target Lockett 8-10 times, Metcalf 4-5 times, and the RB 5 times, you only have a handful of targets left.   

He doesn't seem to fit a need or the character of this team.

Seahawks claimed WR Josh Gordon off waivers from the Patriots.

Coach Pete Carroll said, "He’s a unique talent. Next week we’ll take a look and see what he looks like." Gordon is apparently healthy after being released from the injured reserve list by the Patriots, although he won't suit up Sunday against the Buccaneers. Tyler Lockett is safe in the slot, while electric rookie D.K. Metcalf figures to continue to see a majority of reps in 2-WR sets. Gordon's presence will most likely relegate David Moore and Jaron Brown to the bench. Flash is far from washed; he demonstrated some elite contested-catch ability and made plenty of solid plays after the catch in six games with the Patriots this season. Still, the Seahawks' run-first offense will struggle to enable more than one or two consistent fantasy WRs more weeks than not.

Hey, if it doesn't work out, at least he can relax and smoke some grass legally.

Was thinking the same, but weed is legal in Massachusetts too.
