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. He remains a free agent after a promising season with the Seahawks in ’19. Perhaps the XFL is what Gordon needs — a chance to take a breath away from the pressures of the NFL.
