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

The NFL has officially announced a change to its drug policy Tuesday night, and Gordon's one-year suspension is expected to be formally reduced to 10 games, ESPN's Ed Werder reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Momentum for a new drug policy had been building for the past couple of weeks, and as anticipated, Gordon's season will not be completely lost. While many of the other players that were under suspension will be immediately reinstated after Tuesday's news, Gordon's status as a repeat offender won't allow him to join the Browns until Nov. 23. In pleading guilty to a DWI charge earlier in the day, Gordon likely shaved an additional two games off his banishment, since drunk driving charges won't be considered retroactive under the new policy. Given his overwhelming numbers over 14 games last season with subpar quarterback play, Gordon is probably worth stashing in most formats until he's eligible to return.
Gordon (suspension) pled guilty to DWI in North Carolina on Tuesday, CBS Sports reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Gordon received 12 months of unsupervised probation and will be required to pay court costs and a fine for his July arrest. Currently suspended for the entire 2014 season, Gordon is believed to be destined to have his punishment reduced to 10 games, pending a final agreement on a new NFL drug-testing policy. Furthermore, since Gordon entered his plea on Tuesday, he won't be subject to the new policy's expected two-game suspension for conviction of DWI, since that policy is not anticipated to be retroactive. So while Gordon remains suspended, a change in his future availability should hinge on the new drug-testing policy being finished.
Gordon is in line to have his season-long suspension reduced to 10 games, assuming the NFL's revised drug policy is approved, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The NFL and the NFLPA have not finalized an agreement on a new drug policy as of late Friday night, but Gordon remains in position to have his suspension reduced -- likely to 10 games -- if an agreement is reached as expected, the Akron Beacon-Journal reports.

Gordon's one-year suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy is in line to be reduced to 10 games once the NFL's revised drug policy is formally approved, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Gordon would thus be eligible to be reinstated Nov. 23, though the report adds that a pending DWI hearing slated for Nov. 18 could possibly result in an addition two-game suspension. Either way, it looks like we'll see the wideout later this season -- perhaps not as soon as fantasy owners would prefer, but in time for the stretch run, at least.
In the event that the NFL and NFL Players Association pass a revised drug policy, NFL.com reports that Gordon could have his suspension reduced to 10 games.

2014

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.
