During his time away from the NFL, Gordon stayed competitive by participating in the Fan-Controlled Football league alongside former teammate Johnny Manziel.
Josh's agent released a statement Friday ... saying, "We are grateful that the NFL appreciates the work that Josh put in and now he has earned another opportunity to be part of this league," Zac Hiller said via Adam Schefter.
"We are proud of Josh, and I know all the fans can’t wait to see him on Sundays."
There's no doubt Gordon is a top talent when he's focused ... so here's hoping he can stay on the right track and contribute this season.
Now, the question is ... will anyone take the chance on him??
