Josh Gordon and escort Jenna Shea in bed together

Jenna Shea escort Josh Gordon

Josh Gordon may be suspended for the season, but at least the Cleveland Browns wide receiver still has plenty of support.

The same day the NFL announced they were upholding Gordon’s season-long suspension, Jenna Shea, a $1,000-an-hour escort, sent the following tweet comforting the receiver:

That link goes to an Instagram picture (seen above) of Shea in bed with Gordon. The photo is at least six months old, because back in February Gordon shared a photo on Instagram showing all the detail he’s added to his tattoo since then.

But it sounds like Gordon and Shea have been together even more recently.

Shea sent this tweet (she deleted the Instagram pic) of an Aug. 22 plane ticket from Dallas/Fort Worth to Cleveland:

First class ticket to Cleveland? She must be big time. So who is this $1,000-an-hour escort Gordon is hanging out with?

Josh Gordon interested in playing for CFL team that ‘badly’ wants him

Josh GordonJosh Gordon is reportedly interested in playing in the Canadian Football League while he is suspended from NFL action for the next year, but is there any way he can make that happen? Probably not.

According to Pro Football Talk, the Calgary Stampeders hold the rights to Gordon and “badly want to sign him.” ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported on Wednesday morning that Gordon was exploring the possibility of playing for Calgary, but it doesn’t sound like he has a chance. There are a number of reasons for that.

For starters, a CFL official said the league’s rules prohibit players who are under contract but suspended from another league to play for a CFL team. Ricky Williams played for the Toronto Argonauts while under suspension from the NFL in 2006, but he was apparently able to do that by way of a loophole that has since been closed.

To make Gordon’s wish even less likely to come true, there is a provision in his contract with the Cleveland Browns that would prevent him from heading north of the border to play. Gordon would need the team’s permission, and Mary Kay Cabot reports — unsurprisingly — that the team is not willing to grant it.

If Gordon really thought he should be allowed to play in Canada while suspended from the NFL, he could always explore legal action. The chances of him getting anywhere are slim to none.

Josh Gordon appeal denied, one-year suspension upheld

Josh GordonCleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has been suspended for the entire 2014 season. The suspension ruling was officially upheld on Wednesday after a long appeal process.

“I’d like to apologize to my teammates, coaches, the Cleveland Browns organization and our fans,” Gordon said in a statement. “I am very disappointed that the NFL and its hearing office didn’t exercise better discretion and judgment in my case. I would like to sincerely thank the people who have been incredibly supportive of me during this challenging time, including my family, my agent, my union, my legal team, and the Cleveland Browns staff.”

Gordon had maintained that he failed his most recent drug test because of second-hand marijuana smoke. His attorneys also argued that a significant flaw in the NFL’s testing process resulted in Gordon testing positive. That argument is broken down in more detail here.

Gordon was suspended for the first two games of the 2013 season after testing positive for using codeine syrup as a recreational drug. He was then placed in the NFL’s Stage III drug program and has since had to pass 10 drug tests per month. The 23-year-old was also arrested for driving while under the influence in July, two months after his failed marijuana test.

Could Josh Gordon succeed with second-hand smoke defense?

Josh GordonJosh Gordon is set to appeal his failed drug test on Friday. He is reportedly planning to use the second-hand smoke defense, which is one we have heard from players in the past but rarely holds up during the appeals process. But as Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk outlined on Tuesday, Gordon might actually have a shot.

After he tested positive for the use of codeine syrup and was suspended for the first two games of the 2013 season, Gordon was placed in the NFL’s Stage III drug program. That means he has to pass 10 drug tests per month, and Florio reports that he has passed around 70 of them. And the one time Gordon did test positive, half of his urine tested negative. Florio breaks it down:

Urine samples routinely are split into two bottles, the “A” bottle and the “B” bottle. If the “A” bottle generates a positive result, the “B” bottle is tested. Amazingly, the “B” bottle doesn’t have to independently show a violation. Instead, the substance abuse policy states that the “‘B’ bottle Test need only show that the substance, revealed in the ‘A’ bottle Test, is evident to the ‘limits of detection’ to confirm the results of the ‘A’ bottle Test.”

In English, close counts in horseshoes, hand grenades, and “B” bottles.

For Gordon, the “A” bottle showed a concentration of 16 ng/ml, only one nanogram per milliliter above the limits of 15. The “B” bottle showed a concentration of 13.6 ng/ml — less than the threshold.

In other words, Gordon may have failed his test simply because of the way the sample cups were labeled. Had the arbitrary “A” and “B” labels been swapped, the first urine sample tested would have been negative and he would have passed. Regardless of the way Gordon’s case turns out, that seems like a pretty significant flaw in the NFL’s testing system.

Independent of the A/B dilemma is the fact that one of Gordon’s samples tested just one nanogram per milliliter above the legal limit of 15, whereas the second sample tested 1.4 nanograms per milliliter below. While limits are limits for a reason, does Gordon have a case with the second-hand smoke argument because of how close he was to passing?

For what it’s worth, Gordon recently hired Maurice Suh — the attorney who helped Richard Sherman convince the NFL to nix his four-game suspension after he tested positive in 2012. Gordon is still facing a one-year suspension if he loses his appeal, but I wouldn’t be cutting him from my fantasy keeper league just yet.

PJ Hairston says he switched cars with Josh Gordon after first meeting him

PJ-HairstonHow is it that Josh Gordon was driving a car that was registered to Charlotte Hornets rookie P.J. Hairston at the time of his DWI arrest last weekend? Gordon and Hairston met by chance in a grocery store parking lot (for the first time in their lives) and decided to swap cars, of course. At least, that’s what Hairston is selling.

Hairston told Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer that he bumped into Gordon at a grocery store in Chapel Hill last Friday night. After a quick introduction and an exchange of phone numbers, Hairston claims he let the Cleveland Browns receiver borrow his Cadillac.

“Me and Josh Gordon met at the Fresh Market in Chapel Hill,” Hairston explained. “I walked there to get food and happened to run into him in there. I am a football fan so I knew who he was. Right away, we started talking about football, basketball and we walked outside.

“He saw my car and asked me ‘What are you doing?’ He asked if I minded if we switched cars and we exchanged numbers and he was going to drive my car that night and bring it back to me. I said OK, and we switched cars. The rest of that is history.”

And that was that. Hairston didn’t know Gordon any better than his fantasy football owners know him, but he figured there was no harm is letting a stranger borrow his car. Of course, Gordon was later bailed out by convicted felon Haydn “Fats” Thomas — the guy who allegedly loaned Hairston the car that got him in trouble at UNC. That was all part of the incredible coincidence.

“Once I realized that he had connections with people that got me in trouble in the past, I figured it would probably be a problem,” Hairston added.

I don’t even know what Hairston is trying to get us to believe. Is he trying to say Gordon and “Fats” conned him into a chance meeting with Gordon that would result in Hairston lending out his car? Hairston’s story is so ridiculous it’s almost laughable.

Report: Josh Gordon driving PJ Hairston’s car at time of DWI arrest

Josh-Gordon-mug-shot

While Charlotte Hornets first-round draft pick P.J. Hairston was off allegedly punching a 17-year-old in the face during a YMCA pick-up basketball game this weekend, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was getting arrested for driving while impaired in Hairston’s car. Well, Hairston’s incident happened on Sunday and Gordon’s on Saturday, but you get the point.

Will Brinson of CBSSports.com reported on Monday that the 2015 GMC Yukon that was being driven by Gordon at the time of his arrest is registered to Samuel Peterson Hairston Jr., which is P.J. Hairston’s full legal name.

In addition, the man who posted Gordon’s $500 bond was Haydn “Fats” Thomas, a convicted felon who allegedly loaned Hairston the car he was driving last year when he was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and driving without a license. Hairston did not play for UNC all of last season due to his legal issues.

Did you follow all that? Simply put, it appears that Gordon and Hairston — two professional athletes who have had numerous problems off the court — run with the same inner circle. It sounds like they both need to get away from it.

Josh Gordon arrested for DWI

Josh-Gordon-mug-shot

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was arrested for driving while impaired on Saturday morning. Matt Anderson of WKYC first reported the arrest, which took place at around 4:00 a.m. in North Carolina.

While it is unclear if Gordon was drinking or under the influence of drugs, Raleigh police captain Tommy Klein told Adam Schefter that Gordon appeared “appreciably impaired.”

Where do we even begin with this one? Gordon, who emerged as one of the best wide receivers in the NFL last season, is already facing a potential season-long suspension for a second failed marijuana test back in May. After word of the arrest surfaced, former Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson wrote on Twitter that Gordon needs serious help from those close to him.

Earlier this week, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that sources close to Gordon are concerned he will have a “hard time making it back into the NFL” if he is suspended for a full season. The 23-year-old’s latest arrest has his future looking even more grim.
