Vote: What's in store for Josh Gordon after his reinstatement?

NFL, Cleveland Browns

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was conditionally reinstated by the NFL on Wednesday, allowing him to potentially return to the team as soon as this season.

Gordon, who was selected in the supplemental draft in 2012, has not played in a game since Dec. 21, 2014. He had been suspended indefinitely since September 2016 without pay for multiple violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy. Beginning Nov. 27, Gordon will be eligible -- at the team's discretion -- to return to active status.

That means the 26-year-old could make his debut for the Browns on Dec. 3, when they face the Los Angeles Chargers on the road. Cleveland, 0-8 for the second consecutive year, has a number of problems, but could Gordon be one of its answers? Cast your votes below.

Gordon had a league-high 1,646 receiving yards in 2013 and was named an All-Pro and selected to the Pro Bowl, but he has only played in five games since that season.
