Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is reportedly in dire financial straights and desperately hunting for a new agent who will float him some cash until he gets reinstated … if that ever happens.
The insanely talented wideout hasn’t played a snap in the NFL since 2014 — and even then his season was cut short due to a substance abuse police violation.
He was hoping to get reinstated last week — but the NFL rejected his application and he won’t get to apply again until September.
Meantime, he’s running low on that NFL dough, so says Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole who described Gordon’s money issues as a “desperate financial situation.”
Cole also notes that Gordon was fired by his agent, Joby Branion, and is hoping to sign with a new agent (one with a bankroll) in the hopes of getting a cash advance.
If Gordon is reinstated this September he is due to make $1,068,406 in the final year of his rookie contract but that’s if the guy can take a clean drug test, and we know how that story goes.
