Josh Gordy (born February 9, 1987)[1] is an American football cornerback for the New York Giants of the National Football League (NFL). Gordy has previously been a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Green Bay Packers, St. Louis Rams, and Indianapolis Colts.

College career

Gordy played college football for Central Michigan University, where he had ten career interceptions as a cornerback. He earned All Mid-American Conference honors as a senior while helping CMU win three Mid-American Conference championships in four seasons, and finish in the Top 25 in the nation in the final January 2010 AP Poll and USA Today Coaches Poll.[2][3]

Professional career

Jacksonville Jaguars

After playing at Central Michigan University, Gordy went undrafted and signed as a free agent with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He would only spend his time with the Jaguars as an offseason member of their secondary.

Green Bay Packers

Gordy then signed with the Green Bay Packers and spent time on and off of their practice squad and the team for much of the 2010 season. In his 2010 stint with the Packers, Gordy earned his first Super Bowl ring.

St. Louis Rams

After spending time with the Packers, the St.Louis Rams signed Gordy off of Green Bay's practice squad in 2011 due to many injuries in their secondary. Gordy was then given numerous starting opportunities. He would then set up somewhat of a breakout campaign for himself, recording three interceptions in limited time in the Rams defensive backfield.

Indianapolis Colts

During training camp in 2012, the St. Louis Rams went from having a need for cornerbacks, to having crowded depth at the position. Therefore, after a solid 2011 campaign coming off the bench with the Rams, Gordy was traded to the Indianapolis Colts on August 22, 2012. He would then spend most of his year with the Colts contributing his play on special teams.[4] Gordy was a restricted free agent after the 2013-14 season ended. On April 21, 2014, he signed a qualifying offer from the Colts.[5]

New York Giants

Gordy signed with the New York Giants on April 14, 2015.[6]
