Josh Gordon reportedly facing season-long suspension for positive marijuana test
ESPN reports that Gordon tested positive for marijuana last month and was informed he is facing a suspension for the entire season.
Gordon was suspended two games last season and fined two additional game checks for a first violation, which was for using cough syrup with codeine aka purple drank or sizzurp.
Gordon was the big offensive playmaker for the Browns last season. Despite playing in just 14 games, Gordon led the league with 1,646 receiving yards.
Gordon had multiple failed drug tests in college and was kicked off the team at Baylor because of it. He transferred to Utah but failed a drug test there and never played. Because of his drug problems, he ended up in the supplemental draft, which is where the Browns took him.
You can’t say they didn’t see this one coming. And if we’re talking about Todd McShay’s terminology, then Gordon has the second “D” — dependency issues with weed.
