07/26/16 - WR Josh Gordon has been reinstated to the NFL on a conditional basis after meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell last week regarding his indefinite drug ban, the league announced Monday (July 25).
Gordon will be suspended for the first four games of the regular season and will be eligible to return to the team beginning Monday, Oct. 3. During this suspension, Gordon may participate in team meetings and other activities but may not attend or participate in practices or games.
Gordon may join the team at training camp, which starts Thursday, and participate in meetings, conditioning work and similar activities. He will be permitted to participate in all preseason activities, including practices and games.
"With the league's decision to afford Josh the opportunity to resume his career, he will be with us for the start of training camp," Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown said in a statement. "At that time, we will discuss directly with Josh the direction of our team, our expectations of our players and a plan to support him on and off the field."
Gordon had been suspended indefinitely since February 2015 without pay for multiple violations of the NFL-NFLPA Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.
"As we discussed at our (July 19) meeting, as Commissioner, I want nothing more than to see you turn your circumstances around and succeed," Goodell wrote in a letter to Gordon. "Countless others including your agent, teammates and coaches, (Browns owner Jimmy) Haslam and the leadership of the organization, the Program professionals and Jim Brown also have pledged to provide you with every resource at their disposal. But as you acknowledged, ultimately, your future is your responsibility. I have every belief that you can make the right choices, but it will be up to you to do so."
Gordon, 25, was suspended for two games in 2013, 10 games in 2014 and the entire 2015 season. He caught 87 passes for 1,646 yards and nine

The meeting was first reported by the NFL Network and confirmed by ESPN, which also said a decision is unlikely before the season starts.
04/12/16 - WR Josh Gordon's bid to be reinstated to the NFL has been denied, according to cleveland.com.
The trouble receiver filed a petition to have his indefinite suspension lifted. He will be able to again apply on Aug. 1, according to the NFL.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the NFL will pause any current determination on Gordon's status after the Cleveland Browns' receiver had a urine sample flagged for being diluted or with a minor amount of marijuana present.
Gordon has been suspended three times for violations of the NFL policy on substances of abuse.
Per former Indianapolis Colts general manager Bill Polian, even a diluted sample should be subject to banishment under the parameters of the system in place.
"This is collectively bargained," Polian said via ESPN. "It's not discretionary like the conduct policy."
Gordon was drafted by the Browns in the second round of the supplemental draft in 2012. He turns 25 on Wednesday.
At the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, vice president Sashi Brown said the Browns were optimistic Gordon was on the right track toward being reinstated for the 2016 season. However, the Browns are not permitted to have contact with Gordon and the NFL and NFLPA are not permitted to discuss results of drug tests.
