Frequently suspended wide receiver Josh Gordon was in the news just last month after he applied to the NFL for reinstatement. The 29-year-old has been suspended eight times overall by either his team or the NFL, including six times since 2013, mostly for violating the league’s policies on banned substances.
He played for New England and then briefly for Seattle last season before being suspended indefinitely.
He may be having some money troubles after Heritage Auctions Sports took to Twitter on Wednesday and announced that they were in possession of New England Patriots’ Super Bowl LIII championship ring that was gifted to them by Josh Gordan.
Via the website:
“2018 New England Patriots Super Bowl LIII Championship Ring Presented to Wide Receiver Josh Gordon. When we sold a ring from the Patriots fifth Super Bowl Championship a little over a year ago, we were sure we’d never see another ring quite so massive and ostentatious, but we’re pleased to be so quickly proven wrong by the offered specimen. The addition of a sixth figural Lombardi Trophy to the face of this gargantuan ring turns the ultimate symbol of NFL achievement into a monster visible from outer space, spanning a full two inches (2”) from top to bottom.
Now that the superstar quarterback has traded New England snow for Tampa Bay sunshine, we can be assured that this is the last Patriots ring of the Tom Brady era, that historic half-dozen making him the GOAT just like it did for Michael Jordan. This particular example was issued to the man who caught Brady’s 500th career touchdown pass on October 4, 2018, a thirty-four-yard connection that was Gordon’s first trip to paydirt with the Pats.”
Social media was just shocked to hear this news:
The website estimate they could get $100K or higher for the ring.
Gordon caught 27 passes for 426 yards and 1 touchdown in 2019.
