Josh Gordon being released off IR today today, per sources.

Recommended Posts

He probably missed meetings, either team, positional, or worse... some kind of rehab.

For any of you "STB" guys...

Stop.  Just stop.

This guy might be the epitome of wasted talent.  He has had series of games where he was the best Wr in the league but just continued to throw it away.

The talent is so enticing.

I still believe in Josh Gordon.  And with Brady's arm strength declining over the years, he really wasn't a great fit with Brady.

Not that he'd automatically be a great fit here, but he's worth bringing in.

Considering that this may be the most frustrating Jets team I have ever watched, it's somewhat amazing that we only have the 5th worst record in the league right now. 

Only because we have had our bye week while the two other 1 win teams have not.

I'm torn.

On talent, he would be the Jets best wide receiver in an instant, but he is also a head case and needs handling with kid gloves. I don't think our head case head coach can handle Gordon.

And he might contribute to a few meaningless wins over the back end of the season before leaving in free agency, costing the Jets draft capital.

Can he play left tackle?

Such a stupid comment. Left tackle?  Most tackles can't play left tackle efficiently. But center.. he would definitely be a better center than Kalil.

Gordon is a shell of his former self. He's not worse than Thomas, but he isn't much of an upgrade. Plus he is a bit of a head case. 

Maybe if we had traded Anderson.

I don't think picking up Gordon is a bad idea. In fact I'd pair that move up with signing Antonio Brown.

At this point, I'm not exactly worried about our "culture" anymore. Sorry.

Josh Gordon yes.  Antonio Brown no. 

Gordon doesn't come off as a "bad guy" by any means.  He has/had a drinking problem.  He's worked hard to fix it.  Therapy, rehab, whatever it takes.  And he's shown remorse for his past.  

Brown is not in that category.

What evidence is there that he's a "head case"?  If everyone with a drinking problem and/or got busted by his employer for smoking weed is a "head case", then probably about 30-40 % of people on planet Earth could be labeled a "head case".

I won't sleep until we have an above average left tackle again

A person that gets suspended numerous times for drugs when all he needed to do was stay clean a few years and collect 10's of millions of dollars and also misses practices all the time is a head case. 

No one is saying taking some drugs makes you a head case, but when taking those drugs causes you to  miss practices, miss games and miss out on a ton of money then yeah,  you are a head case. 

And if any of my friends lost their job for alcohol/weed I would also consider them a "head case." Be an adult. Hold down a damn job.

I think Gordon and Anderson actually complement each other’s skill sets. Worth a claim. Don’t think he gets to the Jets’ claim though.

I think that person is an addict. And like 97% of the population is addicted to something. Doesn't make someone a head case.

Right. That's exactly how addiction works.

Gordon isn't the same guy from the Browns. He's never gotten his legs under him since his 2 year exile..

 

He'd be an upgrade for the Jets, but that's more damning of the Jet roster than praise of Gordon.

Bengals love taking shots on guys like Gordon.

Football needs on field time to get acclimated. Doesn't matter how much you run on a treadmill or how much weight you push, you need on field time. Gordon is an immense athlete. As long as he's trying, he will bounce back to some degree.
