NEW YORK (AP) — The conditional reinstatement of wide receiver Josh Gordon has been rescinded by the NFL, and Gordon is once again under suspension. The change in Gordon’s status was listed on the NFL’s official transactions on Friday. Gordon was signed by the Seattle Seahawks in September despite being under an indefinite suspension.
Before the good folks in Jacksonville get too fired up about the arrival of Urban Meyer, let's review a few cautionary tales. Back in 2007, Petrino lasted all of 13 games with the Atlanta Falcons, winning just three times before he slinked back to college in the middle of the night, leaving behind nothing more than a form letter for his abandoned players. As Petrino and so many others have learned, Meyer can't just pick up with the Jaguars where he he left off at Ohio State after one of the most successful coaching careers in college football history.
The Atlanta Falcons have the No. 4 pick in the upcoming NFL draft. Without a general manager or head coach in place, though, it remains a mystery which direction the team will go.
