Many expect Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon to have a big year in just his second NFL season, but he hasn’t gotten off to a great start, considering the second-year receiver will miss the first two games and be banned from the facility from September 2-16 for his positive codeine test this offseason.
Now, his legal trouble have caught up to him:
Lawyers representing Browns players Greg Little and Josh Gordon pleaded no contest Tuesday to traffic charges in Cleveland Municipal Court. Both men were found guilty.
Gordon pleaded no contest to a speeding charge and agreed to pay a $296 fine, according to court documents. Little will pay a $472 fine after pleading no contest to having expired license plates.
Hearing all of this makes it hard to imagine Gordon will remain in the Browns’ future plans if he doesn’t step up once he’s back on the field, and makes the kind of impact a second-round supplemental draft pick should make.
Hopefully, new Browns Head Coach Rob Chudzinski finds a way to light a fire under Gordon before he falls out of favor with the new coaching staff.
