Agent: Seahawks bring back suspended WR Josh Gordon
RENTON, Wash. The Seattle Seahawks are bringing back wide receiver Josh Gordon on a one-year deal even as the talented pass catcher awaits reinstatement from the NFL after his latest suspension. Gordons signing was confirmed on Twitter by his agent David Canter on Thursday, just two days before the Seahawks must cut their roster to 53 players. Gordon was suspended indefinitely by the NFL last December for violating the leagues drug policy. But he found an advocate in quarterback Russell Wilson, who made a connection with Gordon during his short time with the Seahawks.

AP source: Suspended WR Gordon applies for NFL reinstatement
Frequently suspended wide receiver Josh Gordon has applied to the NFL for reinstatement, a person with knowledge of the move told The Associated Press. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Thursday because the NFL does not publicly announce such moves. Gordon, 29, has been suspended eight times overall by either his team or the NFL, including six times since 2013, mostly for violating the league's policies on banned substances. Before the 2014 season, Gordon was suspended for a year for violating the substance abuse policy, a ban that was later reduced to 10 games. But he was later suspended for the season finale by the Browns for violating team rules.
