Former Chiefs WR Josh Gordon signing to Titans practice squad

·2 min read

Former Kansas City Chiefs WR Josh Gordon has caught on quickly with a new team.

Gordon was released during the team’s roster cutdown to 53 players. He previously joined the Chiefs last season, appearing in 12 games with just 5 receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown after his promotion from the practice squad. He ended the season with a demotion to the practice squad during the playoffs in favor of Daurice Fountain, who played special teams.

This offseason provided another chance for Gordon in Kansas City, but with fierce competition in the WR room, he was released from the roster. Chiefs HC Andy Reid didn’t close the door on him possibly returning.

“Listen, I’m proud of Josh (Gordon) for all that he did,” Reid said on Tuesday. “(It was) a real pleasure to have him here. There’s a chance that he potentially is back here and if it doesn’t work out somewhere else but just from a football standpoint but also even the bigger picture of things, he really did a heck of a job.”

Gordon took a different route and opted to sign with the Tennessee Titans on their practice squad after a successful tryout on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old who led the NFL in receiving in 2013 gets another chance with another AFC team — one that doesn’t exactly have the greatest WR depth either. He’ll join a group that includes Robert Woods, Treylon Burks and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine among others as he works his way up to speed in Tennessee.
