who was reinstated by the NFL in November of 2017 after a lengthy suspension, is facing another potential suspension under the NFL’s substance abuse policy, a person familiar with the case confirmed. The potential suspension was first reported by the league-owned NFL Network. 

I take my mental health very seriously at this point to ensure I remain able to perform at the highest level,” Gorden tweeted “I have recently felt like I could have a better grasp on things mentally. 

I would like to thank Coach [Bill] Belichick, [Patriots owner Robert] Kraft, as well as countless others within the Patriots organization for their continued support,” he wrote. 

The Program professionals and all of us at the league office — want him to have every opportunity to resume his career and to be successful in the NFL,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said when Gordon was reinstated. “Whether that happens, however, at the end of the day will depend on Josh.

He was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the second round of the NFL’s 2012 supplemental draft, having starred at Baylor in 2010 before being suspended from the team for off-field issues and transferring to Utah. As a second-year pro in 2013, he caught 87 passes for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games, which projected to 1,881 receiving yards over a 16-game season — a figure that would have been the second-best single-season total in NFL history. 

Gordon was traded to the Patriots earlier this season in exchange for a late-round draft pick. In 11 games with the team, he has caught 40 passes for 720 yards and three touchdowns, emerging as a valuable downfield threat for Tom Brady while also apparently becoming a "reliable" player and person, according to teammate Rob Gronkowski.
