    I expect Goodell to promptly act on his request for reinstatement in 2018.

    The thing is, if he is reinstated that means hes passed many test without any team supervision, and his last mistake was having a beer with teammates because he thought the season was over.

    Would love to see the Cowboys take a chance on him. I know it's a gamble but so is thinking Brice Butler is going to make an impact

    I look at it this way. They are smarter now in the draft, no Johnny Football. They are smarter now in free agency, no bad deals since Carr. Makes me sleep a little better.

    Johnny Football and Brandon Carr are poor comparisons. One was a draft pick which is almost the polar opposite of taking a chance on Josh Gordon. And Carr was a prized free agent who Cowboys invested years and big dollars on. Josh Gordon would be far from that.

    If anything, perhaps the better more accurate comparison is Greg Hardy (without the violent PR backlash). A prove it one year deal. Big reward, low risk.

    Being stupid would be giving Gordon a big deal. Giving him a 1 year prove it deal isn't stupid. There's no picks given up or significant cap space lost.
    If he screws up again, he's suspended and well we still have Dez/T-Will/Bease.

    Don't think the team is that interested but I don't see it as a stupid move. I doubt there will be any real negative PR either. He got suspended over substance abuse, not domestic abuse.

    I was thinking he would just wait until the new CBA talks start in 2021

    If he gets wind that the Cowboys are interested, it will be at least that far out.

    Gordon is only 25 and a Texan. If he has learned he could be a good fit. If not let him go. Not too much to lose. What kind of locker room guy is/was he.

    He's had substance abuse issues and I think you could make a contract that gets you out of the contract if he gets in trouble again.

    This is a 25 year old we are talking about. Maybe he got all of that out of his system and he's ready to move on.

    IT's not like we're taking a risk on an unknown talent. This would actually be worth it.

    I'm sure though that he is facing a long suspension once reinstated so it may be pointless.

    I just think the fact that he is now 25 that he should be maturing more as a person.
