The NFL rescinded the Seahawks wide receiver's conditional reinstatement Friday, leaving him suspended indefinitely.

Throughout his time in the league, Gordon has failed substance abuse tests and that's ultimately the reason why he hasn't been able to sustain much success. That suspension ended in early December when Gordon was conditionally reinstated by Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The 29-year-old Gordon has been suspended six times by the National Football League, playing nearly the equivalent of four full seasons over the past nine years. That was Gordon's sixth suspension since the 2013 season and his fifth for some form of substance abuse, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.

Gordon was conditionally reinstated by the National Football League last month and was set to practice with the Seahawks in Week 16.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said then that he could not talk specifically about Gordon.

Gordon remained on Seattle's roster through the end of the season on the commissioner's exempt list - placed there December 22 after the league said he had not fulfilled the requirements of his reinstatement - meaning he was on Seattle's roster but did not count against any roster limits. "We'll revisit it again next week. Certainly disappointed not to have him for his sake and for a lot of things, but we'll stay with it and we'll see what happens next week". Asked a few other times about Gordon later, Carroll said only that there was nothing new to report. He signed a one-year, $1 million contract with Seattle before last season, and is now an unrestricted free agent.

Gordon, 29, had seven receptions for 139 yards in 2019 for the Seahawks.

Now a free agent and facing an indefinite suspension, Josh Gordon's future in the league is in question.
