Two weeks in advance of the playoffs, after a season that seemed to be going well, especially given how long he had been away, Josh Gordon tweeted this morning that he is once again stepping away from football in order to focus on his mental health. His wasn't among the greatest redemption stories ever, but was still enough to make some of us root for him, and after a season getting in tune with Tom Brady and ahead of a trip to the playoffs, this is a bit of a surprise, even given his history.
NFL.com's Tom Pelissero followed that up with a tweet that Gordon faces yet another substance abuse suspension from the NFL, so it's possible that Gordon was just getting ahead of the news... either way, there's not a lot to say here. This is probably the last we'll see of Gordon, unfortunately. Hopefully he will be able to get on top of his demons and issues.
