Josh Gordon hopes to return to the NFL but the COVID-19 pandemic is complicating matters.
Gordon’s camp claims that he won’t have any more issues, as he’s sober and ready to take a professional approach to football. His camp also can’t confirm that he’s been drug tested as the pandemic has postponed testing. Much like Cam Newton, who has claimed the crisis is holding him back from signing with a new team, Gordon remains without a club. Except, in this case, Gordon is waiting on reinstatement rather than a new team.
NFL franchises could theoretically come to an agreement with Gordon before he’s officially reinstated. The Cowboys did this with Aldon Smith earlier in the offseason.
Gordon has been working out in Seattle with the hope that he could be cleared by the league office before training camp. The former fantasy stud would add another element to Seattle’s offense, something they might need to compete in the division. The Seahawks are +240 to win the division (Fan Duel), sandwiched between the 49ers (+100) and (+370).
Gordon spent time with the Patriots and Seahawks last year. He had seven catches for 139 yards in five games for Seattle last year.
