We haven’t seen Josh Gordon on an NFL field for the Cleveland Browns in quite a while, as he had be serving an indefinite suspension due to multiple drug violations. That indefinite ban has been lifted today, but he must still sit out the first four games of week 16 before he’s able to return.
The last time we saw Gordon on the field for an extended period, he truly looked like he would eventually blossom into one of the best wide receivers in the game. Hopefully, he can recapture that and keep himself in order enough to remain on the field. We’re all rooting for Josh from a personal standpoint. But talking strictly football for a second, I’m sure Robert Griffin III would be excited to have Gordon out there.
The league also announced that Gordon will be eligible to play in all of Cleveland’s preseason games once his clinical resources in Cleveland are confirmed. He will be eligible to return from his four-game suspension on Oct. 3.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell wrote a letter to Gordon on Monday, saying he has “every belief that [Gordon] will make the right choices.”
