Sacked For The Season

Browns WR Gordon suspended 1 year
 

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon's one-year suspension from the NFL for violating the league's substance-abuse policy has been upheld on appeal.

"I'd like to apologize to my teammates, coaches, the Cleveland Browns organization and our fans," Gordon said in a statement released Wednesday by the NFL Players' Association. "I am very disappointed that the NFL and its hearing officer 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."
