Josh Gordon is applying for reinstatement

Josh Gordon is back in Seattle and hoping he can get back in football, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Gordon, who played five games for the Seahawks last season, will be applying for reinstatement to the NFL soon, according to a report from Pro Football Talk on Thursday morning. That report came a day after Gordon tweeted that he was in Seattle, posting a picture of him working out on a local field.

Those two items might lead to the conclusion that Gordon could again be a Seahawk in the near future.

But exactly how the process will play out remains unclear.

First, as PFT notes, if Gordon is reinstated — and there’s no timeline for when a decision will be made — he becomes an unrestricted free agent and can sign with any team. The Seahawks picked up the rest of Gordon’s one-year deal when they claimed him off waivers Nov. 1, and that contract ran out and Gordon became a free agent in March.

And second, and more important, it’s hard to know what the NFL will decide.

Gordon was indefinitely suspended on Dec. 16 for using performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse.
