Report: Josh Gordon arguing second-hand smoke as defense
by Larry Hartstein |

In his appeal hearing Friday, Browns receiver Josh Gordon will argue that his failed drug test resulted from second-hand smoke, reports As it is, Gordon's failed test came out at 16 nanograms per milliliter, just one nanogram above the NFL threshold of 15 nanograms per milliliter, according to Pro Football Talk.

Gordon has hired the same attorney, Maurice Suh, who got Seahawks corner Richard Sherman's four-game suspension reduced to nothing. Gordon is facing a potential one-year suspension if he's not successful Friday.

Report: Josh Gordon's appeal stronger than previously thought
by Larry Hartstein |

Browns receiver Josh Gordon has a fairly strong case for appealing his one-year suspension for a failed marijuana test, according to Pro Football Talk. The case, to be heard Friday, "holds more water than the average bong," the report said.

PFT says urine samples are split into "A" and "B" bottles. Gordon's "A" bottle showed a concentration one nanogram per milliliter above the limit, while the "B" sample showed a concentration slightly below the limit, per PFT.

But the league's substance abuse policy says the "B" bottle test "need only show that the substance, revealed in the ‘A’ bottle Test, is evident to the ‘limits of detection’ to confirm the results of the ‘A’ bottle Test."

PFT says Gordon, who's in Stage III of the program due to previous failed tests, has passed at least 70 drug tests. And he would have passed this one "but for the 50-50 luck of the draw," the website said.

Josh Gordon works with third unit in anticipation of suspension
by Marty Gitlin |

Browns embattled Pro Bowl wide receiver Josh Gordon practiced Saturday with the third-team offense. It is assumed it was considered a waste for him to work with the first unit since he will likely be suspended for the season after several offseason infractions.

Gordon has been granted an appeal with the NFL, which has been slated for Friday. But his positive test for banned substances and subsequent DUI arrest might have cemented a one-year ban.

Josh Gordon will appeal his one-year ban
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Josh Gordon plans to appeal a one-year suspension with NFL officials on August 1, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. Gordon faces a year-long ban due to a failed drug test earlier this offseason. It's the third failed drug test he's had since entering the league in 2012.

Gordon was also arrested and charged with suspicion of DWI in North Carolina earlier this month. 

The Browns troubled receiver broke out in a major way in 2013, posting 87 catches for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns despite playing with a merry-go-round of mediocre quarterbacks.

Browns won't cut Josh Gordon
by Larry Hartstein |

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."
