Draft Scout News
07/21/16 - WR Josh Gordon and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell met this week regarding Gordon's reinstatement from his indefinite drug ban.
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.
04/11/16 - WR Josh Gordon has allegedly failed another drug test.
Fox Sports reports Gordon's "A" and "B" samples, which were collected in March, both came back positive for marijuana and dilute. Even though the samples were below the 35 nanograms per milliliter threshold of a positive test, the diluted samples are considered positive.
The Browns did not issue a statement, but Gordon took to Twitter to say: "Call me if u need a real story worth writing."
Earlier on Monday, there were multiple reports that former Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel and Gordon were living together, dispelling reports that Manziel had moved in with Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller.
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 that was excessive given I had never had any issue whatsoever with alcohol? Yes. 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
01/05/15 - WR Josh Gordon was reinstated from reserve/suspended by the Browns last Friday (Jan. 2).
