    Report: Browns WR Josh Gordon applies for reinstatement

    Gordon -- who was suspended by the NFL for a minimum of a year under the league's substance-abuse policy back on Feb. 3, 2015, -- has applied for reinstatement, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Meanwhile, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has 60 days in which to make a determination on Gordon's request for reinstatement. In the event that Gordon is reinstated within that time-frame, the talented young wideout would be able to participate in the Browns' offseason program, which opens up in April. Per the report, Gordon "has been doing well" in his time away from the team and is confident that he will be reinstated. In the event that he is, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello notes that Gordon would still "be in Stage 3 of the NFL's substance abuse program and will be subject to indefinite banishment again -- a minimum of a year -- with another positive test." In any case, there should be some degree of clarity with regard to the 24-year-old's prospects of seeing NFL action in 2016 before the Browns next take the field, with Gordon's status of course of import to fantasy owners, given the production and upside that he offers when he is able to play.

    Browns' Josh Gordon: Progressing well during offseason

    Gordon, who is eligible to apply for reinstatement Feb. 3, is doing "outstanding" according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Gordon has missed 27 games between 2014-15, including the entire 2015 season, due to various suspensions. He seems to be progressing well during his offseason workouts, however, and could be ready to contribute again in 2016. This is certainly noteworthy for dynasty owners, as Gordon, at 25 years old, could still be a valuable fantasy asset if he's able to get his act together. The Browns have him under contract through the 2016 season.

    Report: Browns notified Josh Gordon multiple times in writing he was late

    The Browns reportedly told wide receiver Josh Gordon in writing multiple times he was late for team meetings or functions, according to Cleveland.com. The NFLPA has filed a grievance on Gordon's behalf to receive the game check he would have been paid if not suspended, approximately $48,564. Other than the game check, the suspension prohibited Gordon from playing his game of the season and prevented him from being able to hit unrestricted free agency.

    Report: NFLPA files non-injury grievance vs. Browns for Gordon ban

    The NFL Players Association filed a non-injury grievance against the Browns for a one-game suspension imposed on Josh Gordon at the end of last season that could delay his free agency status, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN. If Gordon, 23, wins the grievance and gets credit for a sixth game in 2014, he'd be eligible for free agency after the 2016 season. If he loses, he wouldn't hit free agency until after the 2017 season. In February, Gordon was suspended without pay for at least one year for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. He missed the first 10 games of 2014 due to a previous drug suspension. He finished the year with 24 receptions and 303 yards in five games.

    NFL suspends Browns WR Josh Gordon for at least one year

    The NFL announced Tuesday that Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has been suspended without pay for at least one year for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. "As we have conveyed, we are disappointed to once again be at this point with Josh," general manager Ray Farmer said in a statement. "Throughout his career we have tried to assist him in getting support like we would with any member of our organization. Unfortunately our efforts have not resonated with him. It is evident that Josh needs to make some substantial strides to live up to the positive culture we are trying to build this football team upon. Our hope is that this suspension affords Josh the opportunity to gain some clarity in determining what he wants to accomplish moving forward and if he wants a career in the National Football League. We will have no further comment on Josh as he will not be permitted in our facility for the duration of his suspension." Gordon tested positive for alcohol, according to a January report. He was being tested for alcohol due to a prior DUI. His future with the Browns remains in doubt heading into the offseason.

    Reports: Josh Gordon tests positive again, facing 1-year ban

    Browns wideout Josh Gordon tested positive for alcohol and "now will be subject to a one-year banishment," sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Gordon was suspended for the first 10 games this season for a repeat violation of the league's drug policy. Pro Football Talk reports that because of Gordon's past DUI, alcohol was one of the substances for which he was being tested. The website said a one-year suspension is likely a "done deal." The Browns also suspended Gordon for missing a Saturday walkthrough before the regular-season finale, and CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported then the Browns might be ready to part ways with the ultra-talented 23-year-old. The Browns released the following statement regarding the news: "Clearly we are very disappointed to hear the latest report regarding Josh. At this point, due to the confidential nature of the NFL's substance abuse policy, we have not been made aware by the league of a failed test. We are in the process of gathering more information and will provide further comment at the appropriate time."

    Browns coach on Gordon: Offseason puts him at crossroads with us

    Browns coach Mike Pettine had some choice words about his embattled wide receiver Josh Gordon during Monday's press conference, according to the Associated Press. Pettine said he'll take some time in the offseason to step away from his emotions before deciding if Gordon should be kept next season. "Clearly a disappointing end to the year for Josh Gordon," Pettine said. "At some point you get tired of using the word potential. "This offseason puts him squarely at the crossroads with us. We want him to be here." Gordon was suspended for missing a Saturday morning walkthrough, and CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported that the Browns are tired of Gordon's antics and could be ready to part ways with the 23-year-old. He missed the first 10 games of the year due to yet another drug suspension. He finished 2014 with 24 receptions and 303 yards in five games.
