Former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Josh Gordon is visiting the Tennessee Titans on Wednesday, in accordance with NFL Network’s Taylor Bisciotti.
The Chiefs released Gordon on Tuesday because they made cuts with their 53-man roster.
However, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid told reporters “there is a chance” Gordon returns to Kansas City “if it generally does not workout for him someplace else.”
The 31-year-old was selected by the Cleveland Browns in the next round of the 2012 supplemental draft out of Baylor. He continued to lead the NFL in receiving yards (1,646) in 2013, but his career has since been derailed.
Gordon has been suspended by the NFL six times since 2013. Five of these suspensions were for violations of the league’s drug abuse policy. He was also suspended for just one game in December 2014 for a violation of Cleveland’s team rules.
The Texas native missed all the 2015, 2016 and 2020 seasons because of suspensions. He was reinstated in September 2021 and signed a cope with the Chiefs as a free of charge agent.
In 12 games for the Chiefs last season, Gordon caught five passes for 32 yards and something touchdown. As well as the Chiefs and Browns, he’s got also played for the brand new England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks.
The Titans may need some depth at wide receiver after trading A.J. Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles. They will have rookie Treylon Burks, Robert Woods, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, Kyle Philips and Racey McMath on the roster.
However, McMath is likely to be positioned on injured reserve with a hip injury, in accordance with Terry McCormick of Titansinsider.com, which only furthers the team’s dependence on a wideout.
