Browns won't cut Josh Gordon


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Browns coach Mike Pettine told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that receiver Josh Gordon is not in danger of being cut.

"We're expecting him to report on Friday and be on the field," Pettine said. "We have no plans to cut him. I know there's been a lot of debate over that, but I don't see us having that debate."

Gordon is waiting to hear from the NFL about what could be an indefinite suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy, the paper said. He also was arrested for driving while impaired earlier this month.

"I think we need to find the middle ground of what's best for Josh and what's best for the organization," Pettine said. "I know [ESPN analyst] Cris Carter came out and said [Gordon should be cut], but we think you can find that middle ground of what's best for our players and best for the organization. It worked for Cris, but cutting Josh might be the worst thing for him and the worst thing for us."


Report: Josh Gordon's appeal hearing coming soon


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for Browns receiver Josh Gordon, said Thursday he'll meet with the team before training next week to discuss how the two parties can best help Gordon in the face of his looming drug suspension, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Rosenhaus also confirmed that the appeal hearing is coming up soon.

"I'm sure I'll get together with the Browns at some point before training camp to talk to them some more about all of our clients," Rosenhaus said. 

Rosenhaus declined to say much about Gordon's anticipated indefinite ban for violating the league's substance abuse for at least the third time. He reportedly tested positive for marijuana.

"Let's just say (the appeal hearing is) some point in the near future," Rosenhaus said. "I'm not permitted to divulge that."

He also declined to comment on how Gordon's recent DWI in Raleigh, North Carolina might impact the appeal hearing and when he expects a resolution.


Report: Browns 'not likely' to cut Josh Gordon


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) It's possible, but not likely, that the Browns cut receiver Josh Gordon, reports Pro Football Talk. Gordon is facing a possible one-year suspension for alleged failed drug tests, according to PFT. He also was suspended two games at the start of last season.

If Gordon is exposed to the waivers system, the Texans would get the first chance to acquire him because they had the league's worst record last year.


Baylor coach wants to help Josh Gordon


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Baylor coach Art Briles told Sirius XM NFL Radio he wants to help troubled Browns receiver Josh Gordon, a former Baylor standout who's staring at a long suspension by the NFL.

"Everybody’s different in the world and that’s what makes it so unique and everybody’s got special talents and gifts," Briles said. "Josh certainly has a tremendous amount of physical talent and intellectual gifts. We all just hope and pray that he’ll be able to get through everything and finally reach his full potential. The thing about Josh that’s so unique is he’s still young, he just turned 23. His future is ahead. He’s going to be judged by everything that’s happened, but he still has a great future ahead and that’s the way he needs to approach the situation. When you’re in our family, you’re always in so we’ll do whatever we can do to help him be successful in his life."


Report: Deal likely between Josh Gordon, NFL


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) It's likely a deal will be worked out between Browns receiver Josh Gordon and the NFL over Gordon's punishment for alleged failed drug tests and his recent DUI arrest, according to Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman. "It may not be a full season," sources told Freeman. "But the number of games Gordon will be suspended is still a mystery."

The report said some of Gordon's teammates feel betrayed by his actions and now "want nothing to do with him."

Pro Football Talk reported earlier that Gordon has an appeal hearing with the league scheduled for later this month.


Josh Gordon appeal hearing set for late July


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2014) The appeal hearing on Josh Gordon's suspension will be held in late July, unless the NFL and the players union agree on a reduced ban before then, reports Pro Football Talk. The Browns receiver currently faces a minimum one-year suspension for multiple violations of the league's drug policy, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Gordon sat out the team's mandatory minicamp with a pulled hamstring. During any suspension, he likely wouldn't be allowed to work out with the team, the paper said.

Gordon led the NFL with 1,646 receiving yards last season despite missing the first two games due to a drug-related suspension.


Report: Josh Gordon arrested for DWI


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

According to the report, Gordon was arrested and booked by the Raleigh Police Department at 4:00am, though no more details are known at this point. 

Gordon is already in the league's substance-abuse program, and has been reportedly facing a potential year-long ban following positive drug tests. It is not clear how this will affect his on-going appeal process.


Report: No hearing scheduled yet for Josh Gordon


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) The appeal hearing for Browns receiver Josh Gordon has not been scheduled, reports Pro Football Talk. Per ESPN, Gordon is facing a one-year suspension for a third positive drug test, but any ruling cannot be handed down without an appeal hearing.

For the Browns, "time is of the essence," the report said. They need to know soon. And if Gordon is indeed suspended one year, they'd like him available for 2015 training camp.


Josh Gordon has hamstring injury


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/11/2014) Browns receiver Josh Gordon did not practice Wednesday because of a hamstring injury sustained during Tuesday's practice, reports the NFL Network.

Pettine wants answers for Josh Gordon's status


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/11/2014) Browns coach Mike Pettine said Tuesday that he'd like an answer to receiver Josh Gordon's looming suspension, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

"There's certainly a level of frustration because we've known the news for so long," Pettine said. "It's just a holding pattern, and I understand that the league has a process that they have to go through and there's other things that they're dealing with and we respect that. But at the same time it is difficult because it really will affect our preparation for the season."

He said the club has met about it and "we're prepared for all of the eventualities, but the waiting is difficult."

Gordon is facing an indefinite ban for at least his third violation of the league's substance abuse policy. He continues to participate in offseason workouts with the hope of playing this year.


Josh Gordon pleads not guilty to speeding


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2014) Browns receiver Josh Gordon pleaded not guilty to a speeding ticket he received May 25. He was pulled over for going 74 mph in a 60 mph zone, police said.

During the stop, officers found pot in the car and a passenger was cited for possession of marijuana. That passenger, Terrell McKenzie, also pleaded not guilty.

Gordon continues to participate in toffseason workouts while awaiting word on a potential suspension. According to ESPN, Gordon recently violated the league's substance abuse policy and could be forced to sit out a year.


Josh Gordon suspension could come 'any day now'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2014) The expected suspension for Browns receiver Josh Gordon could be handed down "any day now," reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Unless Gordon's lawyers strike a deal with the NFL, Fantasy's No. 2 wideout last year likely will receive "an indefinite ban with an opportunity to apply for reinstatement after a year," the report said.

According to ESPN, Gordon is facing suspension for another alleged violation of the league's substance abuse policy.


Browns gathering information on Josh Gordon incident


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Browns receiver Josh Gordon was ticketed for speeding and his passenger cited for possession of marijuana during a traffic stop over the Memorial Day weekend, reports WKYC.com.

"We are gathering information regarding the situation," Browns general manager Ray Farmer said in a statement. "We will not have any further comment until the appropriate time."

The incident comes at a delicate time. According to ESPN, Gordon is facing a long suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy.


Report: Josh Gordon was in Stage 3 of NFL drug program


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Browns receiver Josh Gordon was in the highest level of the NFL's substance abuse program, Stage 3, at the time of his most recent alleged violation, Cleveland Plain Dealer writer Mary Kay Cabot told Pro Football Talk. Players enter Stage 3 after multiple violations; they may be tested up to 10 times per month, and they remain in Stage 3 for the rest of their careers.

According to PFT, NFL policy states that a Stage 3 violation results in a ban of at least one year. Other media reports have suggested Gordon will be suspended at least half a season.

The Browns are awaiting official word from the NFL.


Little: Josh Gordon's violation 'a mistake'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/23/2014) Browns receiver Josh Gordon is hoping to have a reported year-long ban after failing a drug test for marijuana reduced to four to six games upon appeal, reports FOX Sports.

His former teammate, Greg Little, said Gordon has a good argument to get the suspension lowered so he's not out for the season.

"He's a guy that's going to work to get back and show this is a mistake," said Little, who is now with the Raiders. "It's something that wasn't in his control, so to speak. I don't want to get into too much detail about it."

The report said one possibility is that Gordon missed a random NFL drug test that he was subject to taking. A missed test would automatically be considered a positive under the league's substance-abuse policy.

Gordon also could potentially try to appeal based upon the belief that the testing process was flawed. Last year, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman had a four-game suspension under the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy overturned by arguing that the testing protocol was compromised by a leaky cup containing his urine sample.

(5/21/2014) Browns receiver Josh Gordon, reportedly facing a long suspension for a failed drug test, is practicing at the team's OTAs as expected, reports NFL Network.

ESPN reported Gordon tested positive for marijuana recently and that he'll be suspended as a repeat violator of NFL drug policy. Gordon is expected to be on the field for OTAs this week, and his reps reportedly are preparing an appeal.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2014) Josh Gordon's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, is in the process of appealing the player's suspension for reportedly testing positive for marijuana, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Owner: Josh Gordon will be with Browns 'for a long time'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Although Josh Gordon's immediate future is clouded by the potential for a lengthy suspension, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said the team is backing Gordon for the long haul.

"Josh is learning and growing and improving as a person," Haslam told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "He's learning how to work hard. He's learning how to be a professional. Josh is a smart young man. All of us have made mistakes when we were that age.

"We're counting on Josh being a good football player for the Browns for a long time to come."

ESPN reported Gordon, 23, tested positive for marijuana and could be suspended up to a year as a repeat violator of NFL drug policy.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Five rookie receivers expected at Browns minicamp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Browns have plan at wide receiver


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/10/2014) Even though Josh Gordon is facing a possible one-year suspension for failing a drug test and Nate Burleson (arm) is not certain for training camp, the Browns aren't hitting the panic button with their receiver position, reports ESPN.

The Browns have no plans to alter their draft board and select a receiver. So far in the draft, the team has selected cornerback Justin Gilbert, quarterback Johnny Manziel, guard Joel Bitonio, linebacker Christian Kirksey and running back Terrance West through the first three rounds.

They have two more picks Saturday barring a trade in Round 4 and Round 7, but general manager Ray Famrer isn't worried.

"We play games in September," Farmer said. "Right now there's still plenty of opportunities for us to acquire players and to make things happen."

If Gordon is out, the Browns would have Greg Little, Andrew Hawkins and Burleson, assuming he's healthy, as their top receivers heading into the season. Farmer believes he can still address the situation.

"Whether it’s trades, drafting someone the [third] day, players that get cut or we acquire somebody from the street," Farmer said "there's always opportunities to acquire players."


Report: Josh Gordon could face year-long suspension


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon may not be around to help Johnny Manziel in his rookie season, as ESPN.com reported Friday Gordon may be facing a second suspension following a failed drug test.

According to the report, Gordon is possibly facing a season-long suspension after testing positive for marijuana. Gordon neither confirmed nor denied the report in speaking with ESPN, though agent Drew Rosenhaus said the information was "not true."

Gordon lost two games at the start of his breakout 2013 campaign due to use of a cough syrup containing a banned substance. He reportedly received two separate letters informing him of the suspension, as well as his right to appeal the possible suspension.

Gordon was one of the best receivers in the NFL last season, recording 1,646 yards on 87 catches, with nine touchdowns in just 14 games. 


Johnny Manziel becomes a Fantasy sleeper as a Brown


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) One of the reasons Johnny Manziel was such a spectacular player in college was because he was able to extend a play and throw to a big receiver down the field. Landing with the Browns is a total win for Johnny Football because he'll have Josh Gordon, Jordan Cameron, Greg Little and Nate Burleson as down-field targets along with Andrew Hawkins as a quick, short-area weapon. Ben Tate rumbling in the backfield doesn't hurt either.

Another impressive factor is the Browns O-line, which has two studs in left tackle Joe Thomas and center Alex Mack. If the line can improve from last season (we're looking at you, Mitchell Schwartz), then Manziel will have time to make good throws.

Of all the places he could have gone in the draft, Cleveland's the best fit. Not only should he inject life into the franchise but he should end up starting in Week 1 against the Steelers. Expect Manziel to get taken late in every single seasonal draft as a combo backup Fantasy QB/sleeper who could get some serious trade value. He'll get picked in the middle rounds in dynasty/keeper leagues and should be considered a Top 5 choice in rookie-only drafts.
