Honestly, aren’t we all kind of tired of this song and dance with Gordon? I know I am. Don’t get me wrong. I hope like hell he gets his life figured out and is mentally in a good place.
I’m not cheering against him at all. I’m just tired of constantly reading this news cycle, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Gordon gets suspended, gets clean, gets back on the field, it doesn’t last long and he ends up suspended again. We’ve all seen this movie multiple times.
Maybe, Gordon is better off outside the world of football because he clearly struggles to follow the rules and stay clean.

More than anything, I just hope he’s in a great place mentally. For him, I somehow doubt a booming football career is still an option
