Chiefs signing former All-Pro wide receiver Josh Gordon


The Kansas City Chiefs are signing former All-Pro wide receiver Josh Gordon, who was recently reinstated by the NFL after violations of its policies on substance abuse and performanc­e-enhancing substances.

Gordon's agents, Eric Dounn and Matt Leist, confirmed that Gordon was headed to Kansas City on Monday and planned to sign on to the practice squad. The expectatio­n is he will join the active roster as soon as he's up to speed.

“Time to get to work," Gordon tweeted later Monday with a link to the Chiefs' account.

The 30-year-old Gordon was one of the league's dynamic players early in his career in Cleveland, where he led the league with 1,646 yards receiving during the 2013 season. But he quickly became entangled in off-the-field issues, leading to six suspension­s over a span of six years, five of them for some form of substance abuse.
