The NFL is reinstating former All-Pro wide receiver Josh Gordon, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Gordon is likely to be eligible to play as early as Week 4 in the 2021 NFL season.

"We are grateful that the NFL appreciates the work that Josh put in and now he has earned another opportunity to be part of this league," said Gordon's agent Zac Hiller.

The 30-year-old was suspended indefinitely on Jan. 15 for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs and substance abuse policy. Gordon was a member of the Seattle Seahawks before receiving the suspension.

Gordon's played 63 career NFL games, recording 247 receptions, 4,252 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns.

Due to the Seahawks releasing Gordon on Mar. 4, the receiver will be a free agent once reinstated.
