The Tennessee Titans should copy the Dallas Cowboys.
Last night the Dallas Cowboys decided to sign Aldon Smith to an NFL team four years after his last NFL game…and the Tennessee Titans should consider making a similar move.
Why? Well, let’s go back to a month ago before everything went crazy, there was something in the new CBA that should have gotten more attention than it did.
That was that players would no longer be suspended for marijuana use, which is a massive change from the strict policies they had in place before. It was that policy that led to the suspension of Aldon Smith and (along with a few other issues) led to him being excluded from the NFL.
If there is one player who had struggled to stay inside the lines of the NFL’s illegal substance policy for his entire career, it is wide receiver, Josh Gordon.

Currently “suspended indefinitely” it seems like Gordon is going to have his case watched over directly by Rodger Goodell now that the rules have changed.
Whenever he is reinstated he will be a free agent and it looks like he intends to play in 2020 according to ESPN.
With a spot in the wide receiver room open, it isn’t crazy to think that Josh Gordon would be a great flier to take as the WR5 on this roster.
Gordon’s career on the field has been thrilling as the former Baylor Bear averages 17.2 yards per catch and only once in his NFL career has he had a season where he didn’t register at least one catch of more than 50 yards.
When he was a starter he averaged over 70 receiving yards per game in his 6-year career, and even after missing two full seasons he showed he could be a quality wide receiver in the NFL when he was on the field.
To me, the Titans have to at least attempt to sign him knowing that you are probably going to have one more year of Corey Davis before a move is made there. So why not make a big boom or bust signing now and then if you hit, great. If not, then no harm, no foul you just move on and make a bigger play for a WR in 2021.
