This one is tricky. If you judged Josh Gordon on talent alone, he starts every weekend for nearly every team in the NFL. The thing keeping Josh Gordon from the big time is his well-documented history of substance abuse.
Enter the XFL, a league where the pressure is off and the lights aren’t so bright. Who knows, maybe they’d even have a relaxed policy on players self-medicating if it could ensure them bigger names. Either way, Josh Gord0n can play football.
Gronk retired too early. Honestly, what is that guy going to do with all his free time now? Obviously, he’s going to drink and party, but he can do that in the longest off-season in professional sports. IF he comes to the XFL he’d have even more time off.
Besides, Gronk seems like a guy who could party all week, show up on Sunday and still catch double-digit passes a game. He dominated the NFL for so long, what do you think he would do to the XFL?
