When it comes to pure talent, there aren’t many wide receivers better than Josh Gordon. That being said, the former Baylor star has struggled to stay on the field because he constantly violates the NFL’s drug policies.
Gordon spent the first half of the 2019 season with the New England Patriots before being traded to the Seattle Seahawks. Midway through his stint in Seattle, he was suspended for violating the NFL’s policies on performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse.
Since the 2013 season, Gordon has been suspended a whopping six times. He’s been given opportunity after opportunity all because of his potential. Even though it might seem like it’s time to pull the plug on his career, the former Pro Bowl wideout isn’t giving up yet.
According to ESPN insider Jeremy Fowler, Gordon intends on playing in 2020 as he works his way back from an indefinite suspension. If the NFL reinstates Gordon, he’d be an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career.

Fowler is reporting that Gordon will take all the necessary steps to be reinstated by the league.
In the event that Gordon does get reinstated, it’ll be interesting to see what his market would look like.
Do you think we’ll see Gordon on the gridiron in 2020?
