Hopefully, Gordon is finally back in the league for good and his issues with substances are in his past.

The Seattle receiver is incredibly talented, but he’s never managed to stay out of trouble for long. No matter where he’s played, Gordon has run into issues.

Now, he’s free to return to the Seahawks in time for a playoff run. If he’s in a great place mentally and in shape, then Seattle has added another weapon for Russell Wilson.

Most importantly, Gordon needs to make sure he’s in a great place off of the field. If he’s not, then football won’t really matter.

We’ve cheered for Gordon for years, and we’re all hoping his problems are in his past. He’s been through a lot, and it’s now time to find out what he has left in the tank.
