Browns | Josh Gordon's ban cut to 10 games

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 18:18:42 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon had his season-long suspension officially cut to 10 games Tuesday, Sept. 16. He could also avoid serving the mandatory two-game suspension for his DWI because he pled guilty to his drunken-driving charge early Tuesday before an agreement on the new-drug testing policy was reached, according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Gordon could miss just eight more games and be eligible to return Sunday, Nov. 23.

Browns | Josh Gordon pleads guilty to DWI

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 09:42:11 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon pled guilty to driving while intoxicated in North Carolina Tuesday, Sept. 16, according to the Wake County Clerk of Court. He received 12 months unsupervised probation and will have to pay $290 in court costs, as well as a $100 fine. Gordon's year-long suspension is expected to be reduced to 10 games once a final agreement on a new drug-testing policy is in place. However, his DWI conviction under the new policy could result in a two-game suspension on top of his 10-game suspension.

Fantasy Tip: It's not official yet, but this will likely put Gordon out for 12 games once the new drug-testing policy is in place. Regardless, Gordon should still be owned in all leagues, as he could help your team in the fantasy playoffs.

Browns | Josh Gordon's ban likely reduced

Updating an ongoing story, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's suspension is likely to be reduced to eight games when a new drug testing agreement is reached, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon should have some rust upon his return. However, he needs to be owned in hopes of his potential return for Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Monitor his situation in case his suspension is lifted or reduced.

Browns | Josh Gordon would play immediately

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 14:26:48 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon could play against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2 if a new drug policy agreement with the NFL and Players Association becomes a reality, according to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. "If Josh is able to play this week, I'd like to get him out there," Shanahan said. "I think he'd be able to help." The Browns have not cleared out Gordon's locker, even though he has been suspended for the year.

Fantasy Tip: It's unlikely that the league and players union comes to an agreement before Week 2, but if Gordon is on waivers in your league, he's worth adding. Gordon has a salary of $3,700 (7.4% of cap) against the New Orleans Saints, so if he miraculously is cleared, he would be a wise addition to all lineups.

Browns | Josh Gordon denies having an addiction

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 07:38:17 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon said he does not have a drug addiction in his first public comments with local media since his one-year suspension Wednesday, Sept. 10. He maintained that he was exposed to secondhand smoke, which resulted in his failed drug test. "In this case I was exposed to it from secondhand and prior to I've been drug free and been staying that way," Gordon said. "This incident has been causing a backlash of negative attention and negative media of me being an addict or junkie or using drugs terribly too much, which is definitely not the case. I'd definitely like to have that out in the open and be clear with that for sure."
