Josh Gordon has now played two games in the XFL and the former Cleveland Browns wideout has been putting on a show
Two games are in the books for the XFL and so far, the reviews have been positive. Fans are enjoying the action during the NFL lull and several players are showing off their skills, including former Cleveland Browns wideout Josh Gordon.
The former supplemental pick had a touchdown in the opener, although his Seattle Sea Dragons still fell to the D.C. Defenders. Now in Week 2, Gordon finished with just one reception for 33 yards but hauled in a three-point conversion.
For those unfamiliar with the rule, teams in the XFL don't have the option to kick an extra-point. Instead, they can go for a single point from the two-yard line or attempt a two-point conversion from the five. For those really wanting to get risky, they can attempt a three-point conversion from the 10-yard line, which is what Gordon was able to convert for his team.
Again, Seattle lost as the St. Louis Battlehawks won 20-18 but Gordon continues to make plays when quarterback Ben DiNucci looks his way.
In all, Gordon has six receptions for 74 yards with the score — in addition to his conversion this weekend.
Gordon was selected in the 2012 Supplemental Draft and led the NFL in yardage in 2013 despite playing just 12 games. His talent was off the charts but he had issues staying eligible. While he's now over 30 and no longer the same freakish athlete he once was, Gordon can still make plays when the ball comes his way.
Anyone wanting to catch Gordon, DiNucci, and the rest of the Sea Dragons in Week 3 can tune into FX on Saturday, March 4 at 4:00 pm EST. Or, they can listen on ESPN Extra.
