Josh Gordon Signs with Chiefs

The indefinite suspension has been lifted and WR Josh Gordon has had his reinstatement approved by Commissioner Roger Goodell. News broke Monday that the receiver has quickly found a home, having already signed with the Kansas City Chiefs and QB Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs' newly acquired weapon will eligible as early as Week 4.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Gordon will initially be signed to the Chief's practice squad with the intention to quickly promote to the active roster shortly after and once he is acclimatized. This news has been further confirmed by Gordon's representation, Eric Dounn and Matt Leist. According to Schefter, there were multiple teams that contacted Gordon but the attraction of making Kansas City a multi-year stop was a deciding factor. 

Gordon, who has been suspended six times during his NFL career is looking to once again resurrect his career now at 30 years old. While on the field he has been incredibly productive in his limited experience over the last several years; through 63 career games Gordon has logged 247 receptions for 4,252 yards and 20 touchdowns. 

After being released by the Seattle Seahawks in March of this year, Gordon has been staying active after signing a contract to play in the FCF so his transition should be relatively quick. The Chiefs struck gold here with an extremely low-risk investment that could provide an extremely rich reward. The 2013 Pro-Bowler could potentially provide a deadly weapon to pair with WR Tyreek Hill and TE Travis Kelce.

The Chiefs currently sit at 1-2 and are set to play the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4.
