It’s 2016, and forgive us for being amazed to witness a connection between Robert Griffin III and Josh Gordon, a 43-yard touchdown bomb, or simply that the Cleveland Browns managed to do something competently—even if it’s just the preseason, and even if it’s just against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The NFL announced today that it will reinstate Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon. The league also said that Gordon will be suspended for the first four games of this season.
Josh Gordon, who’s on his third suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy, won’t be reinstated any time soon, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. The league has denied his request, which will leave the Browns receiver suspended through at least the start of training camp.
Earlier today, answers finally surfaced in the NFL offseason’s most ragin’ mystery: Who is Johnny Manziel’s roommate? Initially, it appeared it was fellow ex-Texas A&M Aggie Von Miller, but it turns out Manziel is shacking up with suspended Browns receiver Josh Gordon.
Johnny Manziel was spotted in Los Angeles over the weekend by a TMZ pap, and the former Browns quarterback said that all is well in his life. Manziel claimed he was living with Broncos linebacker Von Miller, who was his college teammate at Texas A&M. Today, ESPN reported that Manziel is actually sharing a place with…
That's the word from ESPN's Eagles beat writer Phil Sheridan—formerly of the Inquirer—who says that Philly nixed the trade offered by Cleveland before the start of the season.
It was inevitable once Adam Schefter reported that Josh Gordon had tested positive for alcohol, but today the NFL made it official: Gordon is suspended for the entirety of the 2015 football season. The Browns released a statement confirming the suspension—which is without pay and for "at least one year"—and leveled at…
The Browns announced Saturday that they had suspended wide receiver Josh Gordon for violating team rules, and placed him on the reserve/suspended list. According to Michael Silver, as well as numerous other reporters, Gordon (and Johnny Manziel, who is on injured reserve) missed a walk-through for the 7-8 Browns…
Josh Gordon's back! Will he immediately pick up where he left off? That'd be nice. He doesn't use an extensive route tree, but he doesn't really need to with his speed. This assumes he's stayed conditioned throughout his suspension. Anyway, it's good to have him back.
This right here is what the dumbest extreme of the dimmest science attached to the moron NFL image machinery looks like.
Pro Football Talk reported last night that the NFL and the players are "very close" to a sweeping overhaul of the league's drug policy and procedures, one that may or may not include the long-debated HGH testing. But multiple sources are reporting other changes, ones that if they had been in place over the last year…
Shannon Sharpe was a guest co-host on this morning's episode of First Take and he had some weird things to say about Josh Gordon's year-long suspension from the NFL.
Browns WR Josh Gordon will miss the entire 2014 season, after the NFL hearing process upheld his 16-game suspension for testing positive for marijuana.
Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk has some very interesting details about Josh Gordon's failed marijuana test that has him facing a full-season suspension. And if it's true, the NFL's drug testing procedure is more messed up than we could have imagined—and Josh Gordon doesn't deserve a suspension.
The Cleveland Browns expect a decision in the appeal of Josh Gordon's season-long (at minimum) ban for a failed drug test within the next two weeks. Gordon, you'll recall, was suspended indefinitely for failing a drug test (weed) for the third time. If the suspension is upheld, he can apply for reinstatement after one…
This is not a thing that normal people do:
The Triangle-area athletes-getting-in-trouble scene is tangled, and recently, quite busy. Let's put some pieces together.
Former UNC star P.J. Hairston—who was forced to turn pro and spend last season in the D-League after being suspended by the NCAA for receiving impermissible benefits—went to a local pickup game at the YMCA this weekend, where he got mad and punched a 17-year-old kid he was playing against.
