Patriots head coach Bill Belichick told the media to ‘talk to the league’ about the status of suspended wideout Josh Gordon. And now it would appear that Gordon himself is going to do just that, as Gordon has filed for reinstatement, according to a report.

Hit with an indefinite suspension on Dec. 20, the National Football League has been relatively quiet on the Gordon front, and made decisions on the Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill and Seattle’s Jarran Reed before saying anything about Gordon. Though this update came eight months ago, NFL insider Ian Rapoport did mention that there was a chance that Gordon could be reinstated by the 2019 NFL season, but that he would first have to prove to the league that he had been sober for an extended period of time.

Gordon caught 40 balls for 720 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games for the Patriots last season.
