    Browns' Josh Gordon: Still without timetable

    Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey said Thursday that he still doesn't have a timetable for Josh Gordon (personal) to rejoin the team, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.Gordon stepped away from the Browns shortly before the start of training camp, citing a treatment plan to maintain his mental and physical health. Dorsey expects the 27-year-old wideout to rejoin the team, but it isn't clear exactly when that will happen. With Corey Coleman recently traded to Buffalo and Antonio Callaway potentially in trouble with the NFL, the Browns are expected to meet with Dez Bryant at some point next week. The team does still seem optimistic that Gordon will be ready for Week 1.

    Browns' Josh Gordon: Not set to rejoin team Tuesday

    Josh Gordon (personal) isn't scheduled to rejoin the Cleveland Browns before Tuesday, the deadline to be eligible for an accrued season in 2018, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.Gordon's ongoing absence from camp apparently won't affect his free-agency status during the upcoming offseason, even though he's only accrued two seasons of NFL service time after being suspended for 56 of a possible 96 games, as the Browns worked it out with the other parties that he won't be adversely affected if he rejoins the team after Tuesday. The wideout will need to play in six games in 2018 to become a restricted free agent next offseason, before potentially hitting the open market as an unrestricted free agent in 2020. As for Gordon's eventual return to camp, a source familiar with the situation said the 27-year-old is "getting closer" to rejoining the Browns, though no firm date has been established.

    Browns' Josh Gordon: Expected to report at some point

    GM John Dorsey told 92.3 The Fan on Saturday that Josh Gordon (personal) will return to the team this season.Just over a week ago, Dorsey said that he had no idea when Gordon will report to the Cleveland Browns, but he now seems to have much more confidence in the wideout. Dorsey and fellow wide receiver Rashard Higgins both acknowledged how Gordon is handling his business off the field and that his return to the team will come when he is ready. Gordon is currently on Cleveland's "did not report" list.

    Browns' Josh Gordon: No timetable for return

    GM John Dorsey acknowledged Wednesday that he has no idea when Josh Gordon -- who is on the Cleveland Browns' "did not report'' list -- will return to the field, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports.Though there is not a definitive timetable for Gordon's return to the team while he focuses on his treatment plan, the wideout intends to be available for the start of the coming season. That hopeful outcome isn't preventing Dorsey from exploring other options while Gordon is away, however, with Dez Bryant still notably available. Until there's added clarity on Gordon's status, the 27-year-old will continue to carry a high-risk/high-reward label for those drafting or conducting auctions at this stage of the summer.

    Browns' Josh Gordon: Gets designation change

    The Cleveland Browns will place Josh Gordon (personal) on the "did not report" list, rather than the Non-Football Injury list, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.The change in designation technically allows the Browns to fine Gordon for missing practice, though it would be shocking if they actually did so. The real intention is simply to help with roster flexibility, as the team seems to be on board with Gordon's leave of absence. While his history of off-field issues makes concern about his status understandable, reports suggest that Gordon hasn't failed a drug test or dealt with any other kind of violation of league policy. His decision to skip the start of training camp is said to be a proactive measure, with the 27-year-old wideout seeking extra counseling in preparation for his full NFL season since 2013.

    Browns' Josh Gordon: Headed for NFI List

    Josh Gordon (personal) will be placed on the non-football injury list, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. "We will continue to support Josh as he receives the care needed to maintain his progress," said Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey on Monday. "We are going to respect his privacy while he is away from the team. Josh will be placed on the (NFI) reserve list until he is ready to return."Gordon tweeted Monday that he'll be away from the Browns at the start of training camp as part of a treatment plan to maintain his health. Despite this surprising development, he says he's in a good place both physically and mentally, with every intention of joining his teammates soon. The 27-year-old has a well-documented history of substance-abuse issues and is subject to frequent drug tests. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the wideout hasn't been suspended, adding that the league will address Gordon's situation "at the appropriate time," ESPN.com's Pat McManamon reports. Sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Gordon hasn't slipped up or failed any drug tests, but rather is taking a proactive leave of absence for extra counseling to help him prepare for the upcoming season.

    Browns' Josh Gordon: Missing start of camp

    Josh Gordon tweeted Monday that he won't be in Cleveland for the start of training camp.The 27-year-old wideout said the upcoming absence is part of his "overall health and treatment plan," and he also made sure to note that he's doing well both physically and mentally. While he didn't give a specific date for his return to the team, Gordon said he has every intention of being available soon. Regardless, it's understandable for prospective fantasy owners to be somewhat wary of the situation given Gordon's lengthy history of suspensions.

    Browns' Josh Gordon: Signs ERFA tender

    Josh Gordon signed his $790,000 exclusive rights free agent tender Monday, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.Thanks to a series of suspensions, the 27-year-old wideout has only two accrued seasons in the NFL. He'll be a restricted free agent next year if he can stay out of trouble, and he's gotten off to a good start by reporting Monday for the start of the Cleveland Browns' offseason program. Gordon will compete with Jarvis Landry and Corey Coleman for targets from Tyrod Taylor, who is expected to enter Week 1 as the Browns' starting quarterback. Head coach Hue Jackson said he's committed to Taylor for 2018, even though the Browns likely will use the No. 1 overall pick on a signal-caller. Gordon made his first regular-season appearances since 2014 this past December, catching 18 of 43 targets for 335 yards (7.8 YPT) and a touchdown in five games to close out the season. He has the physical traits of a high-end No. 1 receiver, but there's no guarantee he gets the target volume to match, especially after the Browns signed Landry to a massive extension.

    Browns' Josh Gordon: Receives ERFA tender

    The Cleveland Browns extended a $790,000 tender to Josh Gordon, an exclusive rights free agent, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.This is a mere formality, as Gordon has only accrued two years of NFL service time and thus can't become a restricted free agent until next offseason. He returned from his lengthy run of suspensions in December, catching 18 of 43 targets for 335 yards and a touchdown in five games. Gordon will turn 27 in April, shortly before the Browns begin their offseason workout program. He'll have more competition for targets following the trade for Jarvis Landry, but it's also fair to expect a boost in efficiency with Landry and Tyrod Taylor now in Cleveland.

    Browns' Josh Gordon: Will be exclusive rights free agent

    Josh Gordon will be an exclusive rights free agent rather than a restricted free agent this offseason, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.Gordon, whose return to the Cleveland Browns on Dec. 3 against the Chargers marked his first NFL action in nearly three years, finished the past campaign with five appearances, which wasn't enough for him to accrue a full season of service time. The extensive time Gordon has missed due to suspension will keep him under club control through at least 2018 and prevent him from negotiating with other teams this spring. Assuming he can stay on the straight and narrow during the offseason, Gordon, who caught 18 passes for 335 yards and a score in his five outings, profiles as the Browns' clear top pass-catching option during the upcoming season.
