02/04/15 - WR Josh Gordon was suspended for at least one year without pay on Tuesday (Feb. 3) for violating the league's policy on substance abuse.
Gordon's suspension begins immediately, the NFL said in a statement.
"As we have conveyed, we are disappointed to once again be at this point with Josh," Browns general manager Ray Farmer said in a statement. "Throughout his career, we have tried to assist him in getting support like we would with any member of our organization. Unfortunately, our efforts have not resonated with him.
"It is evident that Josh needs to make some substantial strides to live up to the positive culture we are trying to build this football team upon. Our hope is that this suspension affords Josh the opportunity to gain some clarity in determining what he wants to accomplish moving forward and if he wants a career in the Nation Football League.
"We will have no further comment on Josh as he will not be permitted in our facility for the duration of his suspension."
Gordon said last week in an open letter that his latest failed test was the result of drinking with teammates on a flight to Las Vegas on Jan. 2. He received notice to take a drug test as soon as he landed in Las Vegas.
"As a strict condition to my reinstatement in Week 12, I had to agree not only to abstain from drinking for the rest of the season but also to submit to an alcohol screen as part of my in-season drug testing under the league's substance-abuse protocol," he wrote.

Did I think it was hypocritical that a professional league making hundreds of millions of dollars off beer sponsorships was telling me not to drink? Yes. Did I so much as blink at the condition? No.
"It doesn't matter if I thought that the league-imposed restriction on drinking had expired at the end of the regular season; what matters is that I didn't confirm whether or not that was the case. Now, th

12/27/14 - WR Josh Gordon was placed on reserve/suspended by the Browns Saturday (Dec. 27) for an undisclosed violation of team rules. Reports in Cleveland said Gordon was a no-show for the team's walk-through Saturday, the day before their season finale against the Baltimore Ravens. Gordon started all five games he was available for this year and totaled 24 receptions for 303 yards. He missed the first 10 games of the season under league suspension.
12/14/14 - WR Josh Gordon led the Browns with three catches, which in itself exhibits how anemic the passing game was on Sunday. The next two games are important for rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel, but they are also important for Gordon. Gordon has played four games since returning from his 10-game suspension. He has to prove he can be a team player or he could be traded in the offseason.
11/30/14 - WR Josh Gordon had another strong outing with seven receptions for 75 yards. He did most of his damage in the first half, catching just one pass in the second half. Gordon now has 15 receptions for 195 yards in two games since serving a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
