And am familiar with the details of the case and don't dispute any of them to be incorrect...

Merely disputing the assumption that Payton would never consider Gordon. Have to doubt that he did and that he called Belichick where there's mutual respect and common league history for background...

IF there is one thing we can assume is that Payton's player acquisitions are heavily weighted by Coach to personal references...
To this I agree completely. Payton is far more likely to avoid a player that is disruptive and uncooperative than one with a single youthful mistake. He learned his lessons several years back.

I too don't doubt they "considered" Gordon, but not seriously after that quick phone call. "Bill, why you cutting him loose? ... Okay, got it. Thanks. Tell Linda I said, 'Hi'"

Unfortunate ...

Josh needs help, not football.

Honestly, I see people going mad about this guy when his last full season was in 2013. The guy has a problem, he will be out of the league again soon.

He needs to be out of the League for good now. Getting back to football over and over again doesn't seem to help him recover.
