There is no denying Josh Gordon’s talent. As a 22-year-old, Gordon hauled in 87 passes for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns. Unfortunately, Gordon’s All-Pro season was not a sign of things to come. The superb talent played in only five games from 2014-16 — missing two full-years due to a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy. Gordon returned in ’17, but has had trouble staying on the field due to injuries and lingering substance issues. Perhaps the XFL is what Gordon needs — a chance to take a breath away from the pressures of the NFL.
