Should Patriots Fans Even Want Josh Gordon Back in 2019?
PLEASE PLEASE PLEEEEASE let these signs point toward a comeback for Josh Gordon! As we all know, Gordon was traded to the Patriots in the middle of the 2018 season. Unfortunately, he didn’t finish the season as he stepped away before the end of the season to focus on himself and his drug habits. But, could he be back in 2019 catching passes from Tom Brady once again?
He Is Working Out at TB12 (Supposedly)

Josh Gordon is supposedly working out at the TB12 facility and is staying close to the Patriots. This is huge news and could be beneficial to the Patriots receiving core. Obviously, the Patriots still have to wait and see if Gordon will be suspended again or even banned from ever playing in the NFL again. But, this is still a strong indication that he wants to be back playing football in 2019.
He’s Been Putting Out Positive Tweets
Gordon has been feeling good about himself lately. If you don’t believe me, go look at his Twitter account.
God is great & life is too good.. 🙏🏾

As you can see, Gordon is working out and thinking in his mind that he is going to be back on the football field very soon. Having Gordon back on the field would be a huge positive for the Patriots this off-season. Philip Dorsett is still a free agent, along with Chris Hogan and Cordarrelle Patterson. If any of those guys leave, Gordon coming back would be big news for the Patriots. Remember, he had 40 receptions for 720 yards and three touchdown receptions while playing in 11 games.
I really hope that Josh Gordon comes back. I think that in a winning culture such as New England, he can thrive with the right people around him. He has seen what it is like winning a Super Bowl from home. Now, he can work toward getting to experience the Super Bowl (assuming he isn’t suspended again or banned) from an on field perspective. We’re rooting for you, Josh!
