Cleveland Browns Wide Receiver Josh Gordon Facing Season Long Suspension
ESPN’s Outside the Lines is reporting that Cleveland Browns wide reciever Josh Gordon is facing a season long suspension for failing a random drug test.
He was suspended without pay for two games last season for violating the substance abuse police in the NFL. According to the report, marijuana was found in the test.
Gordon had 87 receptions for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns as the number one receiver for the team.
Two sources told “Outside the Lines” on Friday that Gordon’s latest violation is the result of marijuana being found during a drug test. One source said that Gordon received a letter in early winter from a league physician stating he had failed a test. A second letter, informing Gordon that he faced a 16-game suspension but had the right to appeal, was sent in late April.
When asked about the report he denied knowing anything about it.
“That’s something you’re going to have to talk to [agent] Drew Rosenhaus about. I really don’t know anything about it.”
His agent Drew Rosenhaus said the information just was “not true.”
Browns drafted Johnny Manziel yesterday to be the quarterback of the future for the team. They also have quarterback Brian Hoyer who did a good job for the team last season.
