According to ESPN reporter Adam Schefter, Gordon is on the verge of being reinstated by the National Football League after completing his requisite programs and counseling to come back from his indefinite suspension levied in 2020. Even then, he was only playing on a conditional reinstatement after violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
When Gordon is reinstated, he should be able to sign with any team he wants—that is, if any franchise wants him or considers him worth the risk. It’s quite possible that Gordon’s playing days are behind him given the number of times the league has opened up the potential for him to play (or return to play) only to see him suspended once again.
So why would the Chiefs go ahead and sign him? Aren’t there more questions than answers? What would this mean, on and off the field, for a team already looking at the Super Bowl?
Let’s dive into the pros and cons and come out the other side with a conclusion.
