Gordon Wright’s Missing Year(s) of Football
A short note to go along with this letter we just received from Gordon Wright (Philadelphia Eagles & New York Jets 1967 – 1970) early this morning. Gordon’s attorneys have written a letter to the NFLPA requesting all information on Gordon’s career in the NFL. Over the years, the Eagles seem to have lost any record of Gordon’s 1968 season. Maybe this is one for the IRS and a look at the Eagles bank records? Are there any old teammates from the Eagles out there who may have played with Gordon in 1968? (We posted more details about Gordon’s situation back in 2010 and still nothing two years later – not even any clarification. Read that 2010 post by clicking HERE.
