According to Jay Glazer, the NFL is reinstating Seahawks WR Josh Gordon from his indefinite suspension.

Glazer says Gordon will be eligible to return for the final two games of the season. 

Gordon re-signed with Seattle back in September after applying for reinstatement back in June. The NFL is supposed to answer within 60 days, so there was a considerable delay for Gordon for some reason. 

The NFL released the following statement confirming the move: 

Gordon, 29, is a former second-round supplemental pick of the Browns back in 2012. Suspensions forced Gordon to sit out the 2015 and 2016 seasons but he was reinstated in November of 2017 and finished out the seasons with the Browns.

The Browns re-signed Gordon to a one-year exclusive rights contract worth $790,000 but he was traded to the Patriots for a fifth-round pick. New England re-signed Gordon to a one-year, restricted deal last offseason.

Gordon was waived from injured reserve last year and later claimed by the Seahawks. He returned to Seattle on a one-year contract this summer. 

In 2019, Gordon appeared in 11 games for the Seahawks and Patriots and caught 27 passes for 426 yards receiving and one touchdown.
