A Different Josh Gordon Showed Up to Kansas City Chiefs OTAs

When the Kansas City Chiefs signed wide receiver Josh Gordon during the early stages of the 2021 season, they may not have been expecting a ton immediately. With that said, to argue that the veteran somehow underperformed wouldn’t be an exaggeration.

Over the course of the year, Gordon hauled in just five passes for 32 yards and a touchdown. He struggled to get consistent separation against one-on-one coverage, his lackluster route tree limited his effectiveness and he appeared to be a diminished athlete at the age of 30. Heading into an offseason that has seen him turn 31, Gordon was brought back for the 2022 campaign. His roster spot is far from secured, although there are many reasons why he could stick around for a second act with the club.
