    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
