Josh Gordon’s return to the NFL is on the horizon, according to his trainer, former Olympian Tim Montgomery.
Gordon is completing a rehab stint and is expected to get out Sept. 21. From there, he will be working with Montgomery for another shot in the NFL.
The wideout, who was suspended indefinitely after violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy for the third time, had his bid for reinstatement denied in May. However, Montgomery said Gordon wants to prove to the league that he is serious about getting his life back on track.
“He’s been clean, so we’re hoping after 90 days he’s reinstated and they put him back in the league, which it looks like they’re going to do that,” Montgomery told Cleveland.com.
The Chargers failed to sell out the 27,000-seat StubHub Center in their home opener. The Rams drew a little more than 56,000 fans in their 27-20 loss to the Redskins at Wholesale Jerseys NFL Los Angeles Where To Find Cheap Jerseys Memorial Coliseum, a stadium with a capacity of 93,000.
The Rams and Chargers had a combined attendance of 81,000 fans, which was 3,000 fans fewer than those who showed up to watch USC and Texas play at the Coliseum Saturday.
Television ratings have also been low for the Rams, who moved back to Los Angeles last year after 21 seasons in St. Louis, and Chargers, who are in their first season in L.A. after 60 years in San Diego.
The Coliseum and StubHub Center are just temporary homes for the Rams and Chargers, who are expected to share a brand new stadium in Inglewood beginning in 2020.
Lockhart said the teams “knew going in this wasn’t a one game or a one-year solution, where they could just turn the light on and expect the type of support they are very confident they’re going to get as they move to the opening of the new stadium.”
