Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon plans to apply for reinstatement to the NFL once again.
Gordon was conditionally reinstated prior to last season and was eligible to participate in training camp and preseason games but faced a four-game suspension to begin the regular season. However, before he was activated he went into rehab and remained suspended indefinitely.
The former second-round pick in the 2012 Supplemental Draft was a first-team All-Pro and Pro Bowler in 2013 when he led the league in receiving yards with 1646 yards despite missing two games due to suspension. Over the past three seasons he has missed 43 of 48 possible games.
Gordon has been posting various videos and pictures on social media and according to his business manager Michael Johnson, Gordon is “in the best shape of his life.”
If reinstated, Gordon is still property of the Browns. However, it would be shocking if he remains with the franchise entering he 2017 season.
