Josh Gordon is returning to the field with Fan Controlled Football, joining former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel on the Zappers, team owner Bob Menery told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Seattle Seahawks wide receiver didn't play in the NFL in 2020 after landing on the suspended list to serve the latest of his numerous suspensions. He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 17.

Fan Controlled Football is in its inaugural season. The four-team league allows fans to call plays, and its games are streamed on Twitch.

Gordon rose to NFL stardom in 2013 when he led the NFL with 1,646 receiving yards despite missing two games. Substance abuse issues have often kept him off the field, with suspensions limiting Gordon to 63 appearances over nine years.

In 2019, the 29-year-old posted 27 catches for 426 yards and a touchdown across 11 outings split between the Seahawks and New England Patriots.
