He'll be suspended 15 games instead of the entire season.

......which for Cleveland is 16 games, in case anyone didn't get it.

Sounds like begging RT @MaryKayCabot: Josh Gordon sends message that football field is 'only place I can find peace'

If #Browns WR Josh Gordon needs football so much, why did he choose drugs over fball at both Baylor, Utah? Not a bad guy, but not buying it

I'm going to guess this is no longer his choice and that he is addicted. But to marijuana? Come on now!

Gordon: "I am very disappointed that the NFL and its hearing office didn't exercise better discretion and judgment in my case" Hmm.

Josh Gordon's suspension is for one YEAR, not 16 games. Won't be allowed around Browns for 2015 OTAs, minicamp, most of training camp.
KO a woman - two games, get caught smoking pot a few times -1 year, what am I missing?

What if that woman was 6'5, 300 lbs.

a persons inability to follow the rules after getting caught the 1st time. that shows a trend and a disregard for your privilaged position as a pro athlete. he also got dui while this was under appeal. not too bright.

I have to disagree. Ray Rice knocked his then girlfriend out drunkenly. If you read into Josh Gordon's actual weed "levels" they were literally miniscule. I get that the NFL sends a message that you shouldn't be a repeat offender... but for a drug that is being legalized across America and in small dosages.. it's ludicrous. If the guy is Rob Ford'ing this b***h then I totally agree with a YEAR suspension.

This does not bode well for Aldon Smith IMO.

which time? the guy has been failing tests since college, theres a reason he was a supplemental draft pick. i dont buy the notion that everytime he failed a test he had miniscule amounts in his system. i'm not against weed at all, i smoke it and have a card to get it. i'm am however against people who cant follow the rules in order to maintain employment. we all make mistakes but only a select few continue doing them after being caught because they think the rules dont apply to them. as far as rice goes, first time offender who got a 2 game suspension. should he get more? that can be debated, but i do know under tagliabue he wouldnt even be suspended.
