Josh Gordon's Super Bowl ring with Patriots is for sale at auction

Josh Gordon's lone Super Bowl ring is no longer in his possession, it appears.

The ring Gordon received after the New England Patriots won Super Bowl LIII is currently for sale at Heritage Auctions. The auction house estimates the ring's value at $100,000, touting it as "the sixth and final Patriots ring of the (Tom) Brady era."

Gordon joined the Patriots in September of that 2018 season and appeared in 11 games for New England, catching 40 passes for 720 yards and three touchdowns.

The wide receiver was suspended indefinitely in December for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy and didn't play in any of the Patriots' postseason games, but still earned a ring for his regular-season contributions.

The 29-year-old landed with the Seattle Seahawks last season but received another indefinite suspension in December. He reportedly plans to apply for reinstatement but is currently a free agent, so perhaps he decided to part ways with his Super Bowl ring to earn some extra cash.

NFL Rumors: Could ex-Patriots WR Josh Gordon be reinstated soon?

NFL Rumors: Could ex-Patriots WR Josh Gordon be reinstated soon?

Josh Gordon is hoping for yet another NFL chance -- and he may get it.

The veteran wide receiver was suspended indefinitely in December for his fifth violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy. His one-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks expired in March, so he'd be an unrestricted free agent if the NFL reinstates him for 2020.

That's what Gordon is banking on, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, who reported Thursday that Gordon "will be applying for reinstatement soon."

"As the source explains it, Gordon is doing well," Florio wrote. "He’s working out and he’s ready to play. The goal is to get him cleared to return before training camp."

New England Patriots fans have seen this story before. The NFL suspended Gordon indefinitely in December 2018 near the end of his resurgent campaign with the Patriots in which he caught 40 passes for 720 yards and three touchdowns.

Gordon finally was reinstated in August 2019 and was back with New England for Week 1, appearing in six games for the Patriots before they waived him in late October due to a knee injury. The Seahawks claimed Gordon off waivers days later, but he played in just five games before being suspended again.

Gordon is a repeat offender of the NFL's substance-abuse policy, but with Randy Gregory also applying for reinstatement and the league recently reinstating Aldon Smith, the 29-year-old apparently is optimistic about getting another chance.

With Tom Brady no longer in town, it's unlikely the Patriots would re-sign Gordon if he was reinstated -- although they do need help at wide receiver.

Seahawks' Josh Gordon suspended indefinitely for violating multiple NFL policies

Josh Gordon's football career has taken another turn for the worst.

The Seattle Seahawks announced Monday that the NFL has suspended the wide receiver indefinitely without pay for violating the league's policies on performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse.

The league has suspended Gordon several times since his 2012 rookie season, including five different times for substance abuse, so it's fair to wonder if the talented wideout has played his final NFL game.

Gordon's most recent suspension before Monday's news came in December of 2018 when he was a member of the New England Patriots. Gordon was reinstated in August and played for the Patriots until October, when the team waived him as he recovered from an injury.

The Seahawks claimed Gordon off waivers, and he appeared in five games for them. The 28-year-old veteran tallied seven receptions for 139 yards and zero touchdowns in Seattle's offense.

The Seahawks will enter Week 16 as the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoff race, and losing Gordon is not an insignificant blow to their roster with the playoffs approaching.
