Troubled wide receiver Josh Gordon is returning to professional football.
On Saturday, February 27, after a brief campaign on social media, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that the former Cleveland Browns and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver has signed with the new Fan Controlled Football League.
Gordon will be joining former Cleveland Browns teammate Johnny Manziel with the Zappers, who are co-owned by New York Mets pitcher Trevor May and sportscaster Bob Menery.
Manziel had openly endorsed the potential signing.

The new league began in mid-February with all games streamed live on Twitch.
The FCF features 7-on-7 full-contact games on a 50-yard field. It will be exciting to see Manziel and Gordon team up again once Manziel, who is recovering from emergency dental surgery that forced him out of the Week 3 FCF game, returns to the field.
