The Washington football team took a big hit when second-year wide receiver Kelvin Harmon injured his right knee. It seems near certain he will miss the 2020 season, and for Washington's already thin wideout group, it could be a big blow.
Well, there has been plenty of speculation about two receivers that are out of football right now, Josh Gordon and Antonio Brown, and if they could help the Redskins even when Harmon was healthy.
Both are legit game changers when on the field, but both have missed plenty of time due to off-field issues. Gordon has dealt with repeat offenses for drug violations while Brown missed almost the entire 2019 season due to suspensions and an arrest and some genuinely bizarre behavior.
Dwayne Haskins has worked out with Brown a few times this offseason, but it was Gordon that got a response from the Washington QB on an Instagram post about Harmon's injury.

This probably means nothing, but it is interesting.
Gordon only made 27 catches last year while appearing in 11 games for two teams, but he's just two years removed from a 700-yard, three TD season with the Patriots.
If Gordon can conquer his demons, he could help Washington or any other club. That's a huge if.
