Josh Gordon‘s camp says he’s sober, clearheaded, and ready to resume his football career. However, his camp isn’t sure whether he’s been drug tested in recent months (Twitter link via ESPN.com’s Jeremy Fowler).
Naturally, the pandemic has complicated matters. Over the last few months, elective surgeries and other non-life threatening medical appointments have been postponed, making it difficult for anyone to undergo drug testing. Testing sometimes calls for a proctor, as well, and that’s tough to pull off in the social distancing era.
Gordon formally applied for reinstatement earlier this month in hopes of getting yet another chance from the league office. Meanwhile, the 29-year-old has been working out in the Seattle area. If Gordon is allowed to play, it’s safe to say that he’ll have interest from teams. The Ravens – who recently ruled out Antonio Brown – could theoretically be one landing spot. The Seahawks have also indicated that the door remains open to Gordon after he posted seven catches for 139 yards in five games for them last year.
