Since the receiver’s most recent suspension has been lifted, he would be immediately added to Kansas City’s practice squad, a source told ESPN.
Former wide receiver All-Pro, Josh Gordon, who was recently informed that he has been readmitted, plans to sign with the Kansas city chiefssources told ESPN.
Gordon will fly this Monday to Kansas city, and is expected to be added to the practice squad of the Chiefs tonight, with the expectation that the promotion to the active workforce will arrive shortly.
GordonThe 30-year-old had contact with multiple teams that expressed interest in signing him. But one of the attractions of playing in Kansas city was to scale it long term and play multiple seasons there, according to his agents, Eric Dounn and Matt leist from LAA Sports.
The Chiefs have been looking for a wide receiver who can play every shot alongside Tyreek hill since they lost Sammy watkins as a free agent in the spring. They have given significant playtime to Mecole Hardman, Demarcus Robinson and Byron pringle, but none of those players have paid consistently for the Chiefs.
Hill is solely behind the tight end Travis kelce in yards per receptions for Chiefs, with 267. The other three wide receivers have combined for 260 yards.
Gordon was suspended indefinitely in December 2019 for violations of league policies regarding substance abuse and performance-enhancing substances. It was the sixth suspension of Gordon since the 2013 campaign and the fifth for some type of substance abuse, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
Gordon submitted your reentry application to the NFL for the commissioner Roger goodell in July, and the NFLPA recommended that he be readmitted. Your request was approved by Goodell Monday, a source said.
But this time, Gordon, who last played for the Zappers of the Fan Controlled Football with his former partner of the Cleveland browns, Johnny manzielsaid being ready to contribute.
Gordon led the NFL receiving in 2013, when he accumulated 1,646 yards.
