Suspended WR Gordon signs contract tender with Pats

Although Josh Gordon is still suspended indefinitely by the NFL, the wide receiver signed his restricted free agent tender with the New England Patriots, according to multiple media reports on Tuesday.By signing the contract tender, Gordon ensures that if he becomes eligible to play at any point this coming season, it will be with the Patriots. The 28-year-old is set to earn up to $2,025,000 on the one-year deal, but only if he plays all 16 games.Gordon had his season cut short last year after playing 11 games for the Patriots when the league issued his indefinite suspension in December for violating his conditional reinstatement under the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.The NFL has yet to announce if Gordon’s suspension will carry over into the 2019 season, but NFL commissioner Roger Goodell addressed Gordon’s situation at the annual league meeting in March.”The first thing right now is the focus on Josh himself as a young man and what he needs to do to get his life on the right track,” Goodell said.”That’s what our focus is. We have resources supporting that. That’s our hope — to make sure he gets on the right track. Once he gets on the right track, we’ll get to that place (of suspension discussion). I think right now, he’s had a complete focus on, ‘I’ve got to keep myself off the field in the right place before I can get back on the field.'”
