by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) The NFL and its players association agreed to a new drug policy that reduces Browns receiver Josh Gordon's one-year suspension to 10 games, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Gordon will be eligible to play Nov. 23 at Atlanta.

Gordon is expected to return to the Browns' facility this week for meetings and conditioning.


NFL, NFLPA finishing up new drug policy


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) The NFL and the NFL Players Association are finalizing a new drug policy Tuesday evening, and a formal announcement is expected to be made by Wednesday morning, CBSSports.com NFL insider Jason La Canfora reports.

The NFLPA has begun to notify players of the revamped suspensions under the new policy, including Browns receiver Josh Gordon officially having his suspension reduced to 10 games. Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker, Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey and Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick are among the handful of players who should be able to rejoin their respective teams Wednesday in preparation of playing in Week 3.

However, Dolphins defenders Dion Jordan and Reshad Jones are not expected to be affected by the change in policy, the Palm Beach Post reports, leaving their suspensions active for two more games.


Josh Gordon pleads guilty to DWI


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Browns receiver Josh Gordon pleaded guilty in a Raleigh, N.C., court to driving while impaired, reports CBS Sports' Will Brinson. Gordon was fined $390 and put on probation for a year.

Gordon will lose his license and must attend alcohol assessment and treatment, according to WTVD in Raleigh. Gordon was pulled over in Raleigh on July 5. His blood-alcohol level was .09, just above the legal limit of .08, the report said.

Gordon continues to await word on a new NFL drug policy that's expected to reduce his league suspension to 10 games. Tuesday's plea deal won't affect Gordon's suspension, according to Pro Football Talk.


Report: Josh Gordon eligible to return in Week 12


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon will have his suspension reduced from 16 to 10 games upon the ratification of the league's new drug agreement, ESPN.com reports Monday.

Gordon has already served two games of his suspension, and will be eligible to return Nov. 23 at Atlanta, in Week 12.  


NFLPA passes new drug agreement


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) The NFL Players Association passed a new drug agreement, according to NFL.com.

Player representatives voted on the new agreement Friday afternoon. Early reports said current player suspensions could be reduced if the new agreement passed. As a result, Wes Welker and Orlando Scandrick are eligible to play Week 2. Josh Gordon 's situation is slightly more complicated, though early reports said his suspension would be reduced to 10 games if the new agreement were adopted. 


Report: Josh Gordon suspension to be reduced to 10 games


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) A season-long drug suspension will be reduced to 10 games for Browns wideout Josh Gordon under the league's new agreement with the NFLPA, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The new length of his banishment would be the result of a fourth substance abuse violation.

Gordon emerged in 2013 as one of the most explosive skill position players in the NFL. Despite losing the first two games to suspension, he racked up 87 receptions for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns.


Report: Josh Gordon's suspension to be reduced to eight games


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) With a new drug policy expected to be approved Friday, ESPN.com reports good news for Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon .

Gordon, who is currently serving a season-long suspension for failing a drug test, is expected to have his suspension reduced to eight games, according to the report. Assuming that includes time served for having sat out the team's first game, Gordon could be eligible to get back on the field in time for Week 10 against the Bengals.

Gordon was arguably the top receiver in the league a year ago, as he racked up 87 catches for 1, 646 yards and nine touchdowns in just 14 games. 


Report: NFLPA to vote on revised drug agreement Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) The NFL Players Association will vote on a revised drug agreement Friday, according to NFL.com. 

If passed, the agreement could lead to a number of players being immediately reinstated. Wes Welker is possibly the biggest name who would benefit from a new drug policy. Josh Gordon could also benefit, though his situation isn't as clear. The new drug policy would raise the threshold for a positive marijuana test. Gordon's positive test was barely above the old threshold, which could lead to a reduced suspension. At the same time, Gordon's test came in 2013, so it's unclear whether the new drug policy would apply here. 


Report: Tuesday vote could help Josh Gordon, Wes Welker


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) The NFL's 32 player reps will vote Tuesday on a new drug policy, reports ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Depending on the exact language, players currently under suspension such as Browns receiver Josh Gordon and Broncos receiver Wes Welker could have their suspensions reduced or overturned, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

However, Mortensen also reported that if Gordon and Welker were allowed back, owners of other teams would push to have their players reinstated. That could be a sticking point in any deal negotiated by the owners and players union.


La Canfora: Amnesty for currently suspended players unlikely


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Though the NFL and player's union are working toward a settlement numerous questions regarding the drug testing policy, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports that amnesty for players currently serving suspensions is not being strongly considered.

According to the report, neither side in the negotiations appears to be pushing for reductions to current suspensions for players like Wes Welker or Josh Gordon . At this point in the negotiations, it does not seem like a priority.

"Right now I don't see us reaching an agreement in the near term with or without player suspensions being lifted," a league source said.


Report: Agreement would bring optimism about suspensions


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon and Broncos counterpart Wes Welker are among the players that are hopeful the new agreement between the NFL and NFLPA could result in reduced drug suspensions, per Bleacher Report.

Gordon has been suspended for the season while Welker is currently set to miss four games.


Report: New drug policy agreement could reduce suspensions


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) The NFL is working on a new drug agreement that could benefit currently suspended players, according to Pro Football Talk. 

The owners and players are still sorting out the details of the new proposal. If passed, the proposal would cause some significant changes to the league's drug policy. Offseason use of amphetamines would become substance-abuse violations as opposed to performance-enhancing violations. First time substance-abuse violations are not subject to suspensions. On top of that, the threshold to trigger a positive test for marijuana would be raised. 

If the new policy is agreed to soon, that could lead to reduced suspensions for players like Wes Welker and Josh Gordon . The new marijuana testing would apply to Gordon, while Welker would now be a first time offender of a substance-abuse policy, not a performance-enhancing violation. 

It's unclear how close the two sides are on getting a deal done. 


'Don't be shocked' if Josh Gordon sues NFL


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Pro Football Talk reports Browns receiver Josh Gordon will decide in the next day or two whether to sue the league over his one-year suspension. "Don't be shocked if he sues." Any lawsuit would include a request to block the suspension pending the outcome of the case, the report said.

Arbitrator Harold Henderson last week upheld the suspension, which stems from a repeat offense of the league's substance abuse policy.


Report: Agent working to free Josh Gordon to play in CFL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Agent Drew Rosenhaus is working with the NFL and CFL to work out an arrangement that would allow client Josh Gordon to play for the Calgary Stampeders of the latter league, NFL Network national reporter Albert Breer has reported.

Breer has tweeted about his conversation with Stampeders assistant general manager Pat Murphy, who has confirmed the negotiations. A request from the CFL to work with Gordon, who was slapped with a season-long drug suspension by the NFL, has been granted.

Various reports, however, have refuted that Gordon will be allowed by the Browns to seek employment in the CFL.


Report: Josh Gordon thinking about playing in CFL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) Browns wideout Josh Gordon is considering playing in the Canadian Football League this year, sources have told ESPN NFL Insider Chris Mortensen. Other reports have indicated that Gordon would not be allowed to play in the CFL unless the Browns cut him.

The league has slapped Gordon with a season-long drug suspension.

Gordon emerged in 2013 as one of the premier receivers in the sport. Despite continued drug issues that resulted in a two-game suspension, he led the NFL with 1,645 yards receiving. Nine of his 82 catches wound up in the end zone.


Report: Josh Gordon's camp considering lawsuit


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Attorneys for Browns receiver Josh Gordon are "considering a lawsuit against the league that would include seeking an injunction to put the [one-year] suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy on hold while the legal process plays out," reports Fox Sports. However, litigation would be a gamble that would endanger Gordon's chances of reinstatement, the report said.


Josh Gordon gets one-year suspension


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Arbitrator Harold Henderson upheld the one-year suspension for Browns receiver Josh Gordon.

"I'd like to apologize to my teammates, coaches, the Cleveland Browns organization and our fans," Gordon said in a statement. "I am very disappointed that the NFL and its hearing office didn't exercise better discretion and judgment in my case. I would like to sincerely thank the people who have been incredibly supportive of me during this challenging time, including my family, my agent, my union, my legal team, and the Cleveland Browns staff."

Gordon was suspended for a repeat violation of the league's substance abuse policy. He will be considered for reinstatement following the 2014 season, so the suspension might last less than a full calendar year.


Browns 'baffled' and 'frustrated' by lack of Josh Gordon ruling


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) The Browns are "baffled" as to why arbitrator Harold Henderson has not issued a ruling on Josh Gordon's appeal, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Team officials are "frustrated over where it could leave them and Gordon."

If the superstar receiver gets a one-year suspension now, Gordon would miss all of 2015 training camp. "Browns sources said there would be an extreme amount of frustration in the organization over that ruling and why it has taken so long," Schefter wrote.

Gordon's appeal of his drug-related suspension concluded Monday, Aug. 4.

Coach: Josh Gordon antsy about NFL suspension ruling


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/21/2014) The limbo status of Browns prolific wide receiver Josh Gordon has negatively affected him - though that opinion has only been expressed by Mike Pettine. Gordon has not spoken to the media since May.

Gordon has been waiting for weeks from the NFL about a possible drug suspension that could end his season before it started.

"It's human nature," Pettine told ESPN. "It's definitely weighing on him. He, like all of us, wants to know and wants to get on with this and move forward. Just being in limbo for so long can be draining. He made the comment the other day that the football field is where he feels most at home, so it's important to him."

Many believe he didn't treat his home with the greatest respect Monday night in Washington. Gordon was so lethargic on the field that he was criticized by Pettine the following day.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Browns want better effort from Josh Gordon


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Browns coach Mike Pettine didn't like the effort he saw from receiver Josh Gordon on Monday night against the Redskins. Gordon played into the fourth quarter and finished with an 8-yard reception on five targets.

"There were a couple plays where I think that we would definitely want -- we just came out of the personnel meeting and talked about it -- that we would have wanted better effort," Pettine told reporters. "But it was not a mistake to play him late."

Added Pettine: "He needs the work, learning the new system. And that's a (position) room (where) you don't want to not play him and then put the other players at risk by increasing their individual workloads."

Pettine admitted some of Gordon's targets were uncatchable, but said he wants his star receiver to "finish plays better."

Gordon is facing a one-year suspension for a repeat violation of the league's substance abuse policy. He appealed and is waiting for a ruling.
