NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that the New England Patriots gave Josh Gordon a low restricted tender worth $2.025 million.
The #Patriots put an RFA tender on Josh Gordon as a placeholder. Remember, he’s suspended, not banished, so there’s a chance he can play in 2019. Lot of steps left first, though, and focus remains on health. @gmfb @nflnetwork pic.twitter.com/vxDkaqJ4Vy

The Boston Globe first reported the news, noting that the Pats would get a second-round pick in return if a team signed the receiver away from New England, a move that remains a longshot given his suspension history.
Gordon was a second-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2012.
Gordon remains suspended indefinitely again by the NFL for his latest violation of the league’s substance abuse policy.
If Gordon gains reinstatement again, a large hurdle he still must face, it appears the talented but troubled receiver remains in the Patriots plans for 2019.
Looks like Gordon will get another shot.
