Gordon (suspension) has signed his restricted free-agent tender with the Patriots, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Gordon remains indefinitely suspended by the NFL, but the act of signing his contact tender ensures that if he's deemed eligible to play at any point this coming season, it will be with the Patriots. In 12 games (11 with New England) last year, Gordon displayed flashes of his undeniable skill, en route to catching 41 passes for 737 yards and four TDs. Beyond Julian Edelman, roles in the team's 2019 wideout corps have not yet been solidified, so if at any point Gordon's playing eligibility is restored, the 28-year-old could quickly re-emerge as a key target for QB Tom Brady.
