Josh Gordon is hoping for another shot in the NFL, as the wide receiver has applied for reinstatement to the league.
Eight months ago, the former All-Pro was deemed ineligible to participate in practices or play in games when he experienced a “setback” in his battle with substance abuse. Gordon was supposed to make his NFL comeback in Week 16 in time for the Seattle Seahawks playoff run, but the setback left his future with the league murky.
Gordon had 27 catches for 426 yards and a touchdown in 11 games with the Seahawks and New England Patriots in 2019, averaging 15.8 yards per catch. He was claimed off waivers from Seattle after New England released him, catching seven passes for 139 yards (19.9 yards per catch) in five games. Gordon caught 40 passes for 720 yards and three touchdowns (18.0 yards per catch) the season prior with the Patriots and Cleveland Browns.
