I don't have data but I think Pacman Jones may have given him a run for his money.

This guy has a serious problem. It’s sad how he’s wasted the talent and second chances he’s been given.

Im pretty indifferent about him getting another opportunity. I just don’t see this ending well, or him ever beating his demons. It doesn’t give me any satisfaction saying that either..

Good for him.  Even in a Pats uniform, I can't root against him.

Not to mention I drafted him in the 13th round.

What’s next on the NFL’s escalation of punishments for substance abuse violations? Does he get sent to the mining colony on Cobol 9?

NFL reinstates Josh Gordon, clearing Patriots wide receiver to return for 2019 regular season

 

By Cody Benjamin

 

Aug 16, 2019 at 6:37 pm ET • 1 min read

 

Less than a month before the kickoff of their 2019 regular season, the New England Patriots have received a big-name reinforcement for their offense -- the same one that was indefinitely banned from the NFL in December.

As ESPN's Adam Schefter reported and the NFL confirmed Friday, suspended wide receiver Josh Gordon has been reinstated and is expected to rejoin the team immediately.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has already notified Gordon of the decision, according to a league statement, with the reinstatement remaining effective on the condition the former Pro Bowl pass-catcher makes "appropriate progress on clinical care and other arrangements." Gordon, of course, had been suspended for a repeat violation of the NFL's drug policy, and the receiver himself vowed just before his latest punishment to step away from the game while focusing on his mental health.

 

"We are all rooting for Josh to succeed, both personally and professionally," Goodell said in the statement. "Everyone shares in that hope and will continue to support him to every extent possible. But as Josh acknowledged, ultimately his success is up to him."

Gordon will not be eligible to play in the Patriots' third preseason game on Thursday, Aug. 22, per the NFL release, but he has been fully cleared to return to the field for New England's regular season. His return bodes well for the Pats' wide receiver corps, which has been limited this offseason thanks to injuries to big names like Julian Edelman and Demaryius Thomas, but even more notably, it marks yet another potential comeback for a player who's virtually become the poster boy for crackdowns by the league office.

A 2013 Pro Bowler who ranked third on the Patriots in receiving yards in 2018 despite playing just 11 games, Gordon has faced discipline for substance abuse dating back to his college days at Baylor. A one-time 1,600-yard receiver with the Cleveland Browns, he entered the NFL via the Supplemental Draft after transferring to Utah following an indefinite suspension for marijuana use and has received four different suspensions, including two initial yearlong bans, from the NFL. He was previously reinstated in 2016, playing four games before entering in-patient treatment; as well as in 2017, when he played five games before being traded to the Patriots the following year.

 

 

 

Goodell once again on his knees in front of Robert Kraft. Unbelievable

Exactly. Other guys around the league getting off damn near scot free for beating their wife or kids. The NFL needs a serious re-evaluation of their values. 

Meanwhile Chris Herndon gets 4 games for a freakin DUI

Bill watched Sam light it up and started making calls.

I still believe in Josh Gordon.  Hate that he's a Patriot.  

He’s a great player.  But he’s also mentally addicted to pot and has had a thousand more chances than other players

I hope Gordon succeeds as a person.

As far as football?  What New England does in 2019 is of no consequence to what the Jets are doing.

If this guy was on any other team he'd never walk on an NFL field again.

One way or another he's going to do 4 games this year or 4 games next year right? Either way we all know it's going to happen so what the hell is the Panic for?

Would've.. could've.. should've... been a great player who's been suspended every year just about right? Just like the Patriots to try to wring every last little bit of juice out of this man's soul!

Well... depends on one's hopes and/or expectations.

If you want them to split with New England, maybe it matters.  Maybe. 

New England is going to do their thing... which is win 12 or 13 games. 

My expectation is the Jets' 2019 season is about Darnold improving, watching an entertaining offense... and getting ready to win the AFCE and earn a 1st round bye in 2020.

This 

I’m all in favor of legalizing marijuana, but the fact that this guy has forfeited tens of millions of dollars just to get stoned means he’s a total dipsh*t.

It’s f*cking weed. Just don’t smoke it. Anyone who says it’s addictive should be kicked in the balls repeatedly.

The goofs in the media who defend him saying that he has “a real problem”, “I hope he gets the help he needs” etc are equally stupid. He’s not a smackhead. He’s a snapperhead.
