Last December, Gordon was slapped with an indefinite suspension following his latest violation of the NFL’s policy on substances of abuse. Further, the league also flagged him for performance-enhancing substances. This was Gordon’s sixth career suspension from the league office; while the wideout has continually been given second (and third, and fourth…) chances, he could be facing an uphill battle this time around.
Further, if Gordon is reinstated, he’ll have to find a new team. As Florio writes, the receiver satisfied “his contractual obligations” to the Seahawks last season, making him an unrestricted free agent.
The wideout had a standout season back in 2013, hauling in 87 receptions for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns. He’s only appeared in 33 regular season games since that time, including a 2019 campaign that he split between the Patriots and Seahawks. He finished last season with 27 receptions for 426 yards and one score.
