The NFL comeback of Josh Gordon continues as the embattled wide receiver has signed with the Tennessee Titans practice squad.
ESPN’s NFL insider Adam Schefter first reported the news.

The 31-year-old wide receiver was reinstated by the NFL last year following his latest indefinite suspension for performance-enhancing drugs and substance abuse. Soon after, he signed with the Kansas City Chiefs and hoped to regain his place in the league as a go-to wideout, having earned Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors in 2013 while leading the league in receiving yards.
Gordon ended up appearing in 12 games for KC, garnering just five receptions for 32 yards and one touchdown. It seemed unlikely he would make it onto the team’s roster in 2022 and that’s what happened as the Chiefs cut Gordon on Monday.
“Gordon has shown great character on the field and in the community since he got to Kansas City and the team is open to him returning,” Pelissero said in a Tweet. “But it’s a numbers game right now and he’s the odd man out.”
However, the Titans have now scooped up the former All-Pro and placed him on their practice squad in the hopes that he could provide them with a solid depth option if one of their wideouts gets injured or they need a performance boost.
