Browns rumors: Roger Goodell says Josh Gordon reinstatement not on the radar

NFL Draft

He last played on December 21, 2014 in the Browns' 17-13 loss to the Carolina Panthers.

The Browns quickly produced a video promoting their case to "bring the draft home" and back to Canton, which is the birthplace of the NFL.

Gordon remains suspended because of multiple violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy, and his future in the league is still very much a mystery, even to the man in charge of reviewing his application, Commissioner Roger Goodell. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that Goodell said Gordon's reinstatement is "not under active consideration to my knowledge". "At least hasn't gotten to my desk yet". The Browns then suspended him for the final game of that year as a result of breaking team rules. He has obliviously confidentiality and privacy issues that we always respect but when a decision is made on his reinstatement one way or the other, we make that clear to the clubs, and obviously publicly.

"But we care first and foremost in the league about the young man and that's where the focus will remain until we get to that point". The commissioner responded when asked about Gordon at a fan forum in Cleveland.

Dwyane Wade to Reach Buyout Agreement With Bulls in "Next Few Months"
Wade isn't long for the organization's future and is expected to reach a buyout agreement at some point in the next few months. They also drafted Finnish big man Lauri Markannen with the lottery pick they acquired from the T-Wolves in that deal.

Gordon spent part of training camp with the Browns last summer and played in exhibition games before leaving the team and entering rehab.

Mary Kay Cabot and I talked about Goodell's comments on Gordon and what it could mean for a possible reinstatement.

He was on the cusp of returning from a four-game suspension in October when Goodell suspended Gordon again. He can reapply in September.

In his second season, Gordon stamped his name among the best wide receivers in football, catching 87 passes for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns.
