Suspended New England Patriots receiver Josh Gordon would possibly truly play soccer once more.

According to a Sunday report from Ian Rapoport, it’s “potential” that Gordon is again on an NFL discipline by the beginning of the 2019 season. Rapoport additionally added that the star receiver’s present indefinite suspension was for “greater than marijuana.” (RELATED: The NFL Reveals The Punishment For Patriots Star Josh Gordon.

This Gordon saga simply retains getting crazier and crazier. He first claims he’s leaving the Patriots to concentrate on psychological well being, it’s ultimately revealed he’s being suspended and immediately we discovered he in some way managed to slide across the clock safety offered to him by New England.

This complete scenario is borderline too unbelievable for even a Hollywood script.

I additionally by no means anticipated that Gordon would have any shot of enjoying in 2019. He’s now on his fifth suspension from the league, and he has struggled with substance abuse points for years. There have been rumors swirling when he acquired hit with this suspension that he was by no means going to play one other snap within the NFL and it wouldn’t have shocked me one bit if that had been the case.

As I’ve stated earlier than, soccer ought to completely be on a again burner for him at this level. Not enjoying within the NFL would be the least of his considerations if he can’t get his life found out.

I’m nonetheless not betting on the previous Browns receiver being obtainable to play week one among 2019. It appears manner too quickly, and it will nearly be like he hardly even acquired punished.

One thing tells me that Roger Goodell doesn’t need that precedent to be set.
