On Sunday Josh Gordon played his first NFL game since December 2014. It took just six seconds for him to get the ball, and it was clear that despite the time away, he picked up right where he left off. Gordon’s addiction issues led to multiple suspensions, but he is officially back with the Browns.

He finished the game against the Chargers with four catches for 85 yards on 11 targets. Throughout the game, Gordon showcased his straight-line speed, leaping ability, and strength.
The only wide receiver with more than 85 receiving yards against the Chargers this year was Odell Beckham. Josh Gordon hit that today after not playing football for three years.
