    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.

    Huddle Up: It's actually surprising the troubled wideout is still with the Browns, but it remains iffy that he'll ever suit up for the franchise again.

  • Posted: 2/17/2015 8:12pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's one-game suspension late last season prompted the NFLPA to file a non-injury grievance on his behalf Tuesday, Feb. 17.

    Huddle Up: The NFLPA has Gordon's back, but it's basically a classic rearrangement of the Titanic deck chairs as the receiver obviously has larger disciplinary issues to worry about.

  • Posted: 2/12/2015 10:51pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon received support from team owner Jimmy Haslam, in an interview with, Haslam was critical of Gordon's off-field behavior and hopes Gordon can get proper help during his suspension. When asked if the Browns would cut Gordon, Haslam said they have a year to decide, and the decision would be made 'at the proper time.'

    Huddle Up: It's not the easiest of decisions to part with a 2012 supplemental second-round draft pick, but Gordon's continued issues and unavailability have more or less forced the hand of the Browns, who need to find playmakers they can trust and rely on.

  • Posted: 2/4/2015 12:15am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has been suspended without pay for at least a year for violating the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. Gordon's suspension commences immediately.

    Huddle Up: Johnny Manziel is getting another chance by entering rehab, but the franchise already has given Gordon the benefit of the doubt, and according to league sources, the troubled WR 'no longer factors into any plans,' and the team intends to pursue an impact wide receiver via the draft, trade or free agency.

  • Posted: 1/26/2015 3:54pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon tested positive for alcohol, according to sources, and his failed test will subject him to a possible one-year suspension. Gordon caught 24 passes for 303 yards in five games last year after leading the NFL with 1,646 yards in 14 games in 2013. Gordon is in Stage Three of an alcohol program, which requires him to be tested for alcohol for a minimum of two years. His failed drug test came after the end of the 2014 season, and it's unlikely that an appeal will work to eliminate or lessen a one-year ban for the 2015 season.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was able to shorten a season-long ban last year, but he may have run out of second chances. Worse, for him at least, is that the suspension also pushes back his potential free agency--though the Browns may cut him loose anyway rather than wait a year and hope Gordon is finally able to stay clean.

  • Posted: 1/25/2015 10:32pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has reportedly failed another drug test and will be subject to a 1-year banishment, according to multiple league sources. Gordon would be under contract through the 2016 season, and he will only be a restricted free agent after that year due to his looming suspension for another failed substance test.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was iffy to return to the Browns in 2015 even before Sunday's news, and now it looks like he'll be headed straight to waivers with a trade no longer a realistic option. 25 years from now, we could be looking back at Gordon's spectacular 2013 season (87-1,646-9) as one of the greatest one-hit wonders of the era.

  • Posted: 1/4/2015 9:05am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon and CB Justin Gilbert officially had their suspensions lifted. The move was procedural, as this enabled the team to remove the two from the reserve/suspended list.

    Huddle Up: Gordon has logged plenty of time on the suspended list, to the point that his years of service--and thus his ability to become a free agent--is in question. Tons of talent, but quarterback issues in Cleveland as well as Gordon's own issues are conspiring to keep him from having the same impact he had in 2013.

  • Posted: 12/27/2014 4:23pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will be a restricted free agent following the 2015 season. He will not be an unrestricted free agent because he was not active for the required six games this season after being suspended for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Reports are already saying Gordon's time in Cleveland is done after his most recent suspension for missing practice. There's a good chance the Browns try to trade Gordon this offseason, although with all of his off-the-field problems, it will be interesting to see how other teams value him.

  • Posted: 12/27/2014 2:22pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was suspended for Week 17 for violating team rules.

    Huddle Up: Gordon was suspended for missing practice. It's Gordon's third suspension in two years. Gordon was out-of-shape and looked uninterested when he returned from his league-mandated 11 game suspension. His future in Cleveland is in serious doubt after this latest setback.

  • Posted: 11/23/2014 8:08pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon posted eight receptions for 120 yards in his regular season debut in Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons. He was targeted a game-high 16 times in the win.

    Huddle Up: Gordon wasn't on a snap count and dominated like he never missed a game. He's a WR1 going forward.

  • Posted: 11/22/2014 2:19pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon was officially activated from the exempt/commissioner permission list Saturday, Nov. 22. In a subsequent move, the team waived LB Keith Pough.

    Huddle Up: Gordon should obviously be inserted into fantasy lineups this week now that he's been activated. The Browns say they'll monitor his snap count but Gordon will still be on the field enough to make a fantasy impact in his first game back.

  • Posted: 11/20/2014 6:29pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon (non-injury related) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

    Huddle Up: It might turn out to be nothing, but there's been no immediate reason given for the absence. All in all, it's rather strange considering it was to be the WR's second practice after returning from suspension.

  • Posted: 11/19/2014 6:17pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has big plans in his return to game action in Week 12. Gordon told reporter Nate Burleson that he plans to tear up the league when he returns. 'He told me: 'Starting on practice this Wednesday, I'm going to outwork everybody on the field,'' Burleson said Tuesday. '(He said) 'I'm going to try to evoke a pride in Cleveland that can hopefully lead us to the playoffs.' He's excited about coming back.'

    Huddle Up: It's always tricky ranking a player in his first game back after nearly a year's absence, but The Huddle has him as a WR2 this week in a favorable matchup with the Falcons.

  • Posted: 11/18/2014 6:25pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will make his season debut against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12, and Falcons head coach Mike Smith expects the Browns to feature their best receiver Sunday. 'Absolutely I do,' Smith said. 'They've stated that they want to get him out on the field as quickly as possible. And he's a game-changer. He's a guy that with the ball in his hands, he can make plays. So we're anticipating that we're going to get a full dose of him this week.' Gordon had a league-leading 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games in 2014. Smith said they aren't afraid to put CB Desmond Trufant, their best cornerback, in a shadow role on Gordon.

    Huddle Up: The Falcons present a favorable opening matchup for Gordon as they're allowing the seventh most fantasy points to opposing wideouts this season. It's certainly a bit of a gamble starting Gordon after such a long layoff, but you likely haven't been stashing him all season for nothing, either.

  • Posted: 9/19/2014 4:02pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's suspension has officially been reduced from 16 games to 10 games, according to the NFL and NFL Players Association.Gordon avoided an additional two-game suspension by pleading guilty to a driving while intoxicated charge in Raleigh, N.C., Tuesday, Sept. 16. Gordon's guilty plea will not be disciplined under the new drug policy.

    Huddle Up: At last, confirmation here following some scattershot reports -- unless, of course, Gordon manages to find more trouble in the meantime.

  • Posted: 9/17/2014 10:46am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is expected to return to the team's facility for conditioning and team meetings this week. He would be eligible to play against the Atlanta Falcons Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: And now we have a return date. Those of you squatting on Gordon, you get to determine if returning in Week 12--essentially the last couple regular season games and the fantasy playoffs--is worth holding a roster spot.

  • Posted: 9/17/2014 12:02am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: This is the best-case scenario for those holding on to last season's top fantasy wideout and, if there are no further alterations, that makes him eligible to return in Week 12.

  • Posted: 9/16/2014 4:05pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Most reports indicate -- and, hey, they've been off base on this before -- that Gordon will receive an extra 2 games tacked on to his expected 10-game ban if and when this new drug policy is finally approved. So if you're stashing Gordon and don't feel you can spare the roster space until the fantasy playoffs, move on and find someone else.

  • Posted: 9/12/2014 8:51pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon had his suspension reduced from a season-long ban to 10 games following the new agreement between the league and the NFLPA on a new drug policy.

    Huddle Up: Gordon would be available for Weeks 12-17, assuming he doesn't get into anymore trouble in the meantime. Fantasy owners holding onto Gordon have a tough decision to make. In competitive leagues, it will be difficult to burn a roster spot for 11 more weeks but having Gordon during the stretch run is enticing. It's going to depend on one's league and roster makeup.

  • Posted: 9/12/2014 5:06pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's suspension will be reduced to 10 games if the NFL and NFL Players Association agree on a new drug policy, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: That's still most of the fantasy season, but that would leave him as a factor for the stretch run and playoffs. Continue to hold on to him if you can spare the space.

  • Posted: 9/12/2014 2:37pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: Hey, congrats to all those who have held on to Gordon as it's looking like you could have the services of 2013's top fantasy WR for this season's homestretch.

  • Posted: 9/6/2014 9:10pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has 'better than a 50-50 chance' to play this season, in the opinion of's Tony Grossi.

    Huddle Up: Gordon is worth picking up and stashing if he's still available in your league. Gordon's on-field production makes him worth rolling the dice on at better than a 50-50 chance to play.

  • Posted: 8/28/2014 3:42pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is not eligible to play in the CFL while serving a year-long suspension in the NFL, according to a league source.

    Huddle Up: The big problem is that Gordon is still under contract with the Browns, so it's back to the drawing board for the wideout and his legal team.

  • Posted: 8/27/2014 3:37pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's representatives are considering a lawsuit against the NFL which could seek an injunction to put the suspension on hold until the legal process takes it course, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: If you've already taken a late-round fantasy flier on Gordon, you certainly have nothing to lose in hoping for some sort of injunction, but overall, this is exactly what we need: More uncertainty, red tape and legal wrangling over the playing status of 2013's top wideout. You'll have no choice but to stay tuned.

  • Posted: 8/27/2014 2:01pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will be suspended for the 2014 season after his appeal of the suspension was denied, according to a source. Gordon will be allowed to file for reinstatement after the 2014 season, but his representatives will look for other alternatives in this case. He also will not be allowed at the team's facility during his suspension. The team hoped it would be able to work with him during the time period.

    Huddle Up: Condolences to those re-draft league GMs who took a mid- or late-round gamble on Gordon. Cincy import Andrew Hawkins stands as our highest-ranked Browns WR, but he only rates bench status in all but the larger leagues at this point. Meanwhile, the stock of TE Jordan Cameron is higher than ever as should be the team's runaway leader in all receiving categories if he stays healthy.

  • Posted: 8/26/2014 3:40pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's hearing for a drunken-driving charge has been rescheduled for November. He was originally scheduled to appear in court Tuesday, Aug. 26. He was arrested July 5 after being pulled over for going 50 mph in a 35 mph zone. Gordon is also still waiting to hear from the league on whether he'll be suspended for all or part of this year for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

    Huddle Up: The seemingly endless wait for the Gordon decision continues. Meanwhile, fantasy GMs have had to make their calls, and Gordon currently owns the 44th-highest ADP among WRs, coming off the board with the 116th pick on average

  • Posted: 8/20/2014 10:33am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's appeal hearing for his one-year suspension had no settlement talks. There has yet to be a ruling on the matter, but it appears to be an all-or-nothing case.

    Huddle Up: The expectation was that the two sides might meet in the middle, with the league offering an 8-game suspension as a settlement option. With no settlement talks, it's tough to expect a settlement--and that means unless the judge hearing the appeal decides to step outside the NFL's guidebook it's either a year off as expected for Gordon, or he gets off without punishment. And you can guess where this is most likely headed.

  • Posted: 8/19/2014 5:41pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon could have shown more effort on a couple plays during the team's Monday night game against the Washington Redskins, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

    Huddle Up: Quite possibly the WR's mind was more on his looming suspension, which likely -- hopefully -- will be announced this week.

  • Posted: 8/14/2014 11:51pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon might have to wait until the end of next week to hear a verdict on his appeal hearing, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Huddle Up: Bad news for the fantasy world as another week of drafts will enter the books without official word on Gordon's status for the season.

  • Posted: 8/12/2014 9:11am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon could hear about his suspension ruling as soon as this week, general manager Ray Farmer said Monday, Aug. 11.

    Huddle Up: The sooner the better, for both the Browns and fantasy owners wondering what draft pick to toss at the possibility of eight games from last season's top receiver.

  • Posted: 8/7/2014 3:59pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon has not had settlement talks with the NFL to reduce his year-long suspension. Gordon has appealed the suspension, and the result of that appeal can come at any time.

    Huddle Up: Nope, nothing definitive yet, as fantasy leaguers near and far await some sort of decision.

  • Posted: 8/6/2014 10:22am ET

    The Cleveland Browns are bracing themselves for at least an eight-game suspension for WR Josh Gordon, league sources said Tuesday, Aug. 5. His appeal wrapped up Monday, Aug. 4, and the decision on his indefinite ban could take anywhere from one to three weeks, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Eight games would actually be a step up from the year-long ban the Browns originally thought Gordon would be facing--and of course there's no guarantee Gordon's appeal will be successful anyway. At this juncture you can stash Gordon at the end of a large roster and hope the appeals process gives him half a season in 2014.

  • Posted: 8/5/2014 12:42am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon expects a decision on the appeal of his suspension in 1to 3 weeks, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: This ongoing will-he-or-won't-he-be-suspended saga certainly isn't doing fantasy GMs any favors with drafts approaching, but bank on Gordon missing more time than less this coming season to err on the safe side.

  • Posted: 8/1/2014 6:03pm ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is not expected to get a decision on his appeal hearing until Monday, Aug. 4, at the earliest.

    Huddle Up: Really, what's another few days in this saga which has been dragging on all offseason?

  • Posted: 7/31/2014 12:06am ET

    Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon is in Stage III of the NFL's substance-abuse program, and a positive test automatically triggers a one-year suspension. For Gordon, only two options exist: full-year suspension or no suspension at all. It is possible the hearing office will, consciously or otherwise, broaden the lens and consider the reaction to a one-year suspension for Gordon versus a mere two-game suspension for Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice for his far more heinous conduct.

    Huddle Up: There was speculation Gordon's suspension could be reduced from 16 to 8 games but that won't be the case. Gordon will either miss the entire 2014 season or be in the Browns' starting lineup Week 1.
