I know I’m going out on a ledge here with this one, but it’s time to make a decision. Your leagues are drafting now and you have no idea what to do about Josh Gordon. My initial thoughts have evolved from completely avoid (right after the announcement during the draft) to taking a late flier when the potential appeal was announced. I can tell you that I have gotten much more aggressive since then and I am starting to get the Gordon itch around the 5th or 6th round. I’m trying to wait as long as I can, but I don’t want to miss what appears to be a golden opportunity. I have read just about everything I can get my hands on around the web and this has pushed me over the edge. Basically the argument is that even in a worst case scenario where he loses the appeal he will take legal action so that the NFL cannot enforce the suspension. I’m buying it. He’s got the right lawyer and this delay has me thinking there is much more going on behind the scenes. Although I’m generally risk averse, I’m willing to accept the possibility of losing a fifth or sixth round pick for the opportunity to have a ridiculously productive Josh Gordon as my WR2 or WR3. Let the good times roll!.
