The NFL announced that wide receiver Josh Gordon will get another opportunity in the league now as a member of the Seattle Seahawks. Out of Baylor and at one time a member of our Cleveland Browns, this receiver is absolutely electric. It would be the return from his FIFTH suspension from football. That’s one, two, three, four, FIVE!
Talk about chances…
With the Browns, Gordon’s best season came in 2013. The receiver played in 14 games, had 87 catches, 1646 yards (18.9 yards per catch) and nine touchdowns. Besides the Browns and Seahawks, Gordon played two partial seasons with the New England Patriots.
In 63 career games since 2012, Gordon has 247 catches, 4,252 yards and 20 touchdowns. The man certainly does not lack talent and really could have been one of the best to ever play the position. At only 29 years of age, the opportunity is still there and that’s why this reinstatement is so meaningful.
For this year, when it’s all set and done, Gordon could play in the final two regular-season games for the Seahawks. This assuming he passes all COVID testing and whatnot. Seattle is currently 8-3 and will likely make the playoffs. Thus, it’s those aforementioned two games, plus however far Seattle goes in this upcoming postseason.
With wide receivers DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett already catching passes from star quarterback Russell Wilson, adding Gordon to the mix makes this team absolutely incredible.
Of course, I’m rooting for the Browns first. However, Gordon has always been a favorite of mine. I’m rooting for him to pass all future drug tests, stay out of trouble and get an opportunity to show just how great he is for the remainder of his career.
The Browns make the Super Bowl (someway, somehow) and the opponent is those very Seahawks. The Browns have the lead in the 4th quarter until Russell Wilson fires a bomb to Josh Gordon for the game-winning score. How Cleveland would that be?
In all seriousness, wishing Gordon the best. Make this return the last and best of luck!
