Substance abuse leads to ‘indefinite’ suspension for Seattle Seahawks’ wide receiver, Josh Gordon

Josh Gordon, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Josh Gordon’s NFL career may be over because, once again, he has been suspended by the league for substance abuse.

This is Gordon’s sixth time being suspended by the NFL since 2013. Gordon missed the 2015 and 2016 season because of substance abuse when he was a member of the Cleveland Browns.

According to ESPN, he was also suspended last December for violating terms of his reinstatement, missing the final three games of the season with the New England Patriots.

The Seahawks just picked Gordon off of waivers after the Patriots let him go. He had one of his biggest games of the season for the Seahawks in their victory over the Carolina Panthers with seven catches and 138 yards including a 58-yard reception.

This latest suspension has to be a disappointment for not only the Seahawks but to Gordon as well who has been struggling with substance abuse for years. Since the NFL has suspended him indefinitely, this could mean the end of the road for Gordon.

Reports are that Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll had no idea that his star wide receiver had relapsed again.
