Josh Gordon Goes From NFL Receiver To Car Salesman In Two Weeks

Josh Gordon was the NFL’s leading receiver in 2013. He could lead the league again this year but it’s going to be in a very different category: Car sales.

Gordon, who was suspended last month for violating the NFL’s drug policy, has apparently landed a job at a car dealership in Ohio. According to USA Today, Gordon will be the “goodwill ambassador” for the Sarchione Auto group.

ESPN reporter Josina Anderson writes on Twitter: #Browns WR Josh Gordon has a new job. “He will be the goodwill ambassador for the Sarchione Auto group in Randolph, Ohio, which includes Sarchione Ford and Sarchione Chevrolet . He will be working in all aspects of their car business including as an on-floor salesman. Gordon will also be heading all of their local community efforts including with the Wounded Warriors Project. He starts this weekend.”

Gordon’s suspension surprised a lot of people last month. After giving Ray Rice a two-game suspension for domestic abuse, many thought that the league’s year long suspension for marijuana was too harsh.

Regardless, Josh Gordon will be spending this NFL season at a car dealership instead of the football field.

It may seem odd for Gordon to pick up a job at a car dealership but the 23-year-old receiver needs something to occupy his time. He’s struggled with substance abuse issues in the past and having a year off to do nothing probably wouldn’t be good for him. Hopefully this gives him a little structure while he rides out his suspension.
