The 30-year-old wide receiver has not played in the NFL since 2019 following an indefinite suspension for violating its substance abuse and performance-enhancing substances policies.

It was the sixth time Gordon was suspended since he was an All-Pro with the Cleveland Browns in 2013 and fifth for a violation of some form of substance abuse.
