Josh Gordon is doing his best to stay in shape while he’s away from the NFL.

The Patriots star was suspended back in December for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. However, he’s still not taking any days off while he attempts to get back into professional football. (RELATED: The NFL Reveals The Punishment For Patriots Star Josh Gordon. They Dropped The Hammer)

TMZ reported the following Tuesday:

Sources connected to the wide receiver tell TMZ Sports … Gordon has been working out at Numa Speed in Florida with Tim Montgomery, a former Team USA sprinter who won a gold medal in the 4×100 in 2000. 

We’re told the two have been grinding 6 days a week for several hours a day, focusing on speed and power. 

This update should make Patriots fans very happy. They won the Super Bowl this past season without him. Imagine what they could do on the field next year if he shows up, healthy, in shape and ready to roll.

It should terrifying defenses around the league.

I really hope Gordon gets his life on track and figures everything out. He’s far too talented to not be playing. At the same time, football does need to take a backseat to getting his life in a good place.

Football won’t matter at all in the long run if he’s not mentally where he needs to be. It’s easy to forget pro athletes are people too and they struggle. (RELATED: Roger Goodell Says The NFL Is Focused On Helping Josh Gordon Return To Football)

Any true Patriots fan and fan of the game wants Gordon to get his mental health and substance abuse issues figured out above all else.

If he gets everything figured out and returns this upcoming season, the league better watch out. It’s going to be an electric factory on the field for Tom Brady and the Pats.
