Browns | Josh Gordon has a chance to play?

Sat, 13 Feb 2016 16:51:32 -0800

Updating an ongoing story, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has a chance to return in 2016 as ESPNCleveland.com's Tony Grossi said that he thinks Gordon will play at some point next season

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will be a late-round flyer until there is more leaning towards him being reinstated. He has WR1 talent and is worth the later pick.

Browns | Josh Gordon must convince commissioner

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 17:48:07 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon must convince NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell he won't slip up again in the future in order to be reinstated. "Our No. 1 issue here is to prevent these things from happening," Goodell said Friday, Feb. 5. "I'm hopeful that Josh understands that he's going to have to conduct himself differently going forward to be a member of the NFL and to be representing the Cleveland Browns, or any team in the NFL."

Fantasy Tip: Gordon has WR1 upside, but it remains to be seen if he will be reinstated and when a decision will be made. Until his fate is decided, he is a late-round flier in drafts.

Browns | Josh Gordon confident in a return

Sat, 06 Feb 2016 10:35:36 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is confident that he has met the terms of his indefinite suspension in order to be reinstated, according to a source. If Gordon is reinstated, he would revert back to Stage 3 of the NFL's substance abuse policy. He would receive random testing and would still be one more incident away from another indefinite suspension.

Fantasy Tip: If reinstated, Gordon would immediately supplant Travis Benjamin as the Browns' No. 1 wide receiver. Gordon, Benjamin and TE Gary Barnidge would make for a nice pass-catching threesome in Cleveland, but the quarterback situation is currently less than ideal. There's no guarantee that Gordon receives his reinstatement, so continue to track his status throughout the offseason.

Browns | Josh Gordon vows to change

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 13:27:24 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon said he plans to "disassociate" himself from those that could be contributing to keeping him out of the NFL. Gordon has been suspended a year for multiple violations of the league's substance abuse policy, and he recently applied for reinstatement. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will make a decision within 60 days of Gordon's application.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard not to envision Cleveland's new management not being on board with Gordon shaping up to play for this football team. He's still only 25 and clearly has the tools to be an elite receiver if he can get his head straight. There's obviously risk involved, but if Gordon is reinstated for next season, he's likely to be a early-round draft pick.

Browns | Cleveland not rushing Manziel decision

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 10:24:07 -0800

The Cleveland Browns are in "no panic" to make a quick decision on the future of QB Johnny Manziel, according to new vice president of football operations Sashi Brown. The Browns will also assess the future of suspended WR Josh Gordon once they know if he'll be reinstated by commissioner Roger Goodell.

Fantasy Tip: The overriding belief is that Manziel has no future in Cleveland, and new head coach Hue Jackson isn't believed to be high on him. Time will tell, but Manziel has the physical traits to be successful in the NFL. He could find more success with another organization, and the Dallas Cowboys are rumored to be a possible destination if he becomes available.

Browns | Josh Gordon applies for reinstatement

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 05:10:27 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has applied for reinstatement to the league, confirmed a source with knowledge of the process who requested anonymity because of the league's confidentiality rules. Gordon's fate will be known within 60 days of the receipt of his application, per rules of the reinstatement process. He is under the Browns' control for 2016. If reinstated, Gordon can become a restricted free-agent in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: It's somewhat hard to believe, but he just turns 25 in April. Gordon could be a WR1 in fantasy if reinstated, and it sounds like they're trying to shore up the locker room around him.

Browns | Josh Gordon doing well

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 19:28:39 -0800

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is eligible to apply for reinstatement Feb. 3, a year after his indefinite drug ban was announced by the National Football League. According to sources Gordon is doing "outstanding."

Fantasy Tip: All indications are the Browns will stick with the talented, yet troubled, wide receiver. If he can return and keep his head on straight he can be one of the biggest playmakers in the league. Fantasy owners will certainly want to tread lightly next summer based on his history, however, and not draft him terribly high in seasonal leagues.

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 14:36:28 -0700

Browns | Cleveland in contact with Josh Gordon

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:34:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has been in contact with an official from the team this offseason, according to a source. Gordon is serving a one-year suspension for multiple violations of the NFL's drug and alcohol policy but is allowed to be in contact with a front office member.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon will not play in the 2015 season because of the suspension, so owners should avoid him in all leagues. Gordon could be reinstated next season and may be a fantasy option at that point.

Browns | Josh Gordon's teammates didn't know rules

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 18:15:43 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's latest suspension came as a surprise to his teammates, as they didn't know he couldn't drink alcohol, according to CB Joe Haden, Tuesday, April 21. "Everybody's 21. We're going to Vegas on a vacation. We know he can't do certain things, but we had no idea he couldn't have a drink. If I knew he couldn't have a drink, everybody would have tried to it wouldn't have been that. But Josh Gordon is a grown man and sometimes you have to know what decisions you make, but nobody was aware that he couldn't drink," Haden said. Gordon is suspended for a minimum of one full season.
