It was announced on Tuesday that the NFL had finally made a decision as to what they’re going to do with Cleveland Browns wide receiver and his suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, although they still did not announce it publicly, for whatever reason. Aside from the fans being upset at how long it has taken the league to hand down the punishment on the best wideout from the 2013 season, the Browns are getting impatient as well.
According to a report from Adam Schefter, the team is getting upset at the league for taking so long to finish this whole process, mainly because the potential length of the suspension could affect the team’s preparations for next season.
Should they hand down a year-long suspension to Gordon at this time, then that would leave him out for all of next year’s training camp.

Gordon’s potential suspension for his second failed marijuana test back during the spring has been a hot topic of conversation, especially since the tremendously light suspension was handed down to Ray Rice for the alleged domestic abuse incident that he was involved with.
Whatever the case ends up being, you can definitely see how the Browns have a legitimate gripe here, should they stick with the one-year ban.
