Does Josh Gordon deserve to be reinstated?

The league is no longer suspending for positive marijuana tests and many feel like this is his best chance to deliver on his seemingly limitless potential. Others think he's had too many chances and doesn't deserve to be in the league. What do you think? 🏈

Josh Gordon has had many chances to be in the league, but he's been tripped up by his issues with addiction. This last time, he lost his brother and couldn't handle the grief on his own. No one should be denied employment or playing the game they love because of those issues. If he is clear-headed and able, the NFL should reinstate him.

No one is unworthy of redemption and Gordon's story can show those struggling with addiction that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. He needs the game, the game needs him and fans need to see one of the best wide receivers in the game in action again.

Tylt sports editor Dan Tran sits down with The Ringer's Tyler Tynes to breakdown whether Black quarterbacks are treated fairly in the NFL.

How much is too much? This is.

It's unfortunate that Josh Gordon has faced addiction and the death of his brother. No one should have to go through that. However, playing in the NFL is a privilege—a privilege he has proven five times to be ill-equipped to handle. If it's not marijuana (which is no longer a suspendable offense), it will be something else. He has been given opportunities to change and he hasn't capitalized on it.

if the fourth time wasn't the last straw, the fifth one should be. The NFL shouldn't reinstate him.
