Josh Gordon: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Gordon could be suspended for a year for failing a test for alcohol.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

We'll await further details, but if the report of a potential suspension, which is echoed by ESPN's Adam Schefter, is confirmed, this latest news will further cloud the future of the Browns' talented wideout. Gordon, who caught 24 passes for 303 yards in five games this past season, served a 10-game suspension to start the 2014 campaign and was subsequently suspended by the Browns in Week 17 for a violation of team rules.
Gordon -- who didn't play in Week 17 due to suspension -- finished the 2014 season with 24 catches on 47 targets for 303 yards and zero touchdowns.

Gordon has been suspended for Sunday's season finale due to a violation of team rules.

The embattled receiver apparently missed Saturday's walk-through, which may have led to the decision. With Gordon inactive, the Browns added receiver Phil Bates to the roster in his place. Gordon will end the season having played in only five games, amassing 303 yards on 24 catches (47 targets).

2015

2014

Gordon tested positive for marijuana this offseason, which resulted in a one-year suspension that was eventually upheld on appeal. He will be able to apply for reinstatement next year. It's a huge hit to the Browns' offense, as Gordon was coming off a season in which he didn’t just lead the league in receiving. He led it by 147 yards – in only 14 games. Gordon accomplished this feat while catching passes from the trio of Brandon Weeden, Jason Campbell and Brian Hoyer. At 6-3, 225 and with 4.5-speed, Gordon has prototypical No. 1 receiver size and speed. He led the NFL with nine catches of 40-plus yards and 28 catches of 20-yards or more – despite serving a two-game suspension to start the year. Among receivers with 100 or more targets, Gordon was first in yards per catch (18.9) and second only to DeSean Jackson with 10.4 yards per target (YPT), despite playing for a team that finished 29th with 6.4 YPA.

2013

The Browns took a chance on Gordon, forgoing a second-round pick to draft him in the supplemental round last year, and it panned out. Gordon managed a robust 8.5 YPT and 16.1 YPC on a below-average passing team, while scoring five touchdowns on just 95 targets. At 6-3, 221 and with 4.5 speed, Gordon is a prototypical No. 1 target with red-zone size and enough explosiveness to beat defenses deep. He enters 2013 as the team's No. 1 receiver and its most dangerous outside playmaker as Greg Little has shown himself to be little more than a possession threat, and only an average one at that. Just keep in mind Gordon is suspended for the regular season's first two games after violating the league's substance abuse policy.

2012

After failing to address the wide receiver position in April's draft until selecting Travis Benjamin in the fourth round, the Browns made a splash when they took Gordon in the second round of the supplemental draft. It's a calculated risk as he missed all of 2011 after being suspended from Baylor before transferring to Utah. In his sophomore season in 2010 at Baylor he posted 42 catches for 714 yards (17.0 YPC) and seven touchdowns. He has the prototypical size (6-foot-3) and speed (4.52 40-time) to be successful at the professional level, but it's unclear how much rust he'll have to knock off first. The opportunity is there for Gordon as there isn't a tremendous amount of talent in Cleveland he must leap to get looks, and the Browns made a significant commitment to get him by sacrificing next year's second rounder, so he could be an interesting sleeper pick in the later rounds of drafts this summer.
