Here we go again with Josh Gordon
The NFL might get another reunion with wide receiver Josh Gordon for what feels like the 100th time. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Josh Gordon has completed his treatment program and just needs to be reinstated.
NFLPA determined Josh Gordon has successfully completed his NFL-monitored treatment program and has recommended to the NFL that he be reinstated, per sources. Gordon is awaiting final approval from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, but he is said to be ready to play and vaccinated.

Gordon’s career has been quite a story.
Once a star on the Cleveland Browns, he has since been suspended by the NFL six separate times since 2013 and has bounced around quite a bit. He went to the Seattle Seahawks, the New England Patriots, and was then with the FCF league that also featured Johnny Manziel.
But, Gordon has been getting randomly tested and has passed all those tests, apparently, and is nearing a return to the NFL–if a team gives him yet another shot. He was a dynamic receiver with the Browns before everything went array, so maybe there is a glimpse of talent remaining.
Whether or not Gordon gets reinstated by the NFL is one thing, and if he does it could be a stretch if an NFL team actually gives him another shot after he was suspended in 2020 when he was practicing with the Seahawks.
But, nonetheless, Gordon is working tirelessly to get back on the football field and is somehow only 30 years old.
