Josh Gordon Hopes To Return To NFL

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before. Currently under an indefinite suspension, wide receiver Josh Gordon says he hopes to eventually return to the NFL (Twitter link via ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter).

Gordon was released by the Seahawks earlier this month following his latest ban. That led him to the Fan Controlled Football league, where he teamed up with old pal Johnny Manziel.

Gordon, 29, was activated to the Seahawks’ roster in December. Ultimately, he wasn’t able to take the field in 2020. His last action came in 2019, when he played in eleven total games — six for the Patriots and five for the Seahawks. Despite Gordon’s off-the-field issues, Pete Carroll was taking the patient approach with Gordon, hoping that he’d develop into a high-end weapon for Russell Wilson.

Still, the football world is rooting for Gordon to get his life on track. And, still, every evaluator remembers Gordon’s unbelievable 2013 season with the Browns when he notched 1,646 receiving yards and nine touchdowns.
