It felt likely that Gordon would end up somewhere, as it’s clear he still has something left in the tank. The reason for his release by Denver was constant fumbling. In 41 games with the Broncos, Gordon coughed the football up 12 times, including in his final game with the team in Week 11. With an unimpressive and injured Kansas City backfield, Gordon could be in the mix pretty soon.
In 2022, Gordon has 90 rushes for 318 yards and two touchdowns in ten games. He was also active in Denver’s passing game, hauling in 25 receptions for 223 yards.
