They say history repeats itself. And for Josh Gordon, who was just suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, Gordon has written his latest chapter in a personal book littered with drug abuse, felonies, and suspension from the only thing keeping him off the streets. Gordon, who was traded from Cleveland to New England in September 2018 was a recent acquirement from the Patriot’s waivers on October 31, 2019, and played in five games for Seattle before being suspended. His presence didn’t go unnoticed, however, as he contributed greatly to the Seahawks last-second, overtime victory in Santa Clara, California last month against the then-undefeated 49ers.
During his time in Seattle, Gordon had seven receptions for 139 yards, including a 58-yard bomb from Russell Wilson that set up a touchdown in Seattle’s 30-24 win over the Panthers, helping Seattle clinch a playoff berth for the fourth time in the past five seasons. This opens up a spot on the roster for Seattle, but they may not too worried about filling Gordon’s position as their receiving core has been solid this year.
