The Cleveland Browns don’t have much to celebrate these days. However, if they are able to get wide receiver Josh Gordon back from suspension before the season starts, that would help them out; but it doesn’t seem to happening anytime soon.
It has been nearly three months since Gordon applied for reinstatement to the league. He has still yet to hear any word on the situation and, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, it is currently at “status quo.”
At the NFL Annual Meeting, Commissioner Roger Goodell said that he would be looking over reports and then making the decision on Gordon’s future. New head coach Hue Jackson was asked about his spot on the team, but he essentially refused to answer.
“I think it’s premature for me to talk about that because he hasn’t been reinstated,” Jackson said.
Josh Gordon was one of the best receivers in the NFL when he was actually able to play. He led the league with 1,646 yards in 2013 and was on track to do much of the same in 2014, but he only played in five games before being suspended for the 2015 season as well.
