Gordon has been at the center of fan outcries after his appeal to have his suspension lifted due to problems with a urine sentence was met with a denial. The fact that he was given a year long suspension for his third off-field issue was compounded by the two game suspension handed to running back Ray Lewis after he knocked his then fiancé’ out in a Las Vegas elevator. Should Gordon decide to pursue legal action, Profootballtalk.com is saying that any lawsuit would include a request to block the suspension allowing him to play until the case is completed.

Should Gordon opt for a lawsuit against the NFL it could open more opportunities for other players in the future to attempt the same thing. The NFL has taken a very hard stand on off-field issues especially those that involve the use of drugs, most notably marijuana. How a lawsuit will impact the NFL’s suspension and discipline policies is unknown but the Ray Rice incident has already forced a change for the sport making domestic abuse crimes more punishable.
