Browns WR Josh Gordon suspended for one year

We know that the college football season is just a few days  away, however we also do know that there is a large contingent of Buckeyes fans that are Cleveland Browns supporters at the next level. Well, with that being said, it’s very unfortunate to report that the NFL announced on Wednesday that Josh Gordon’s suspension has been upheld, and he will be gone for the year.

After hearing the appeal and making their decision, for what seemed like forever, the NFL has decided that the original punishment will stick.

Following the announcement of the ruling, Gordon had this to say.

“I’d like to apologize to my teammates, coaches, the Cleveland Browns organization and our fans,” Gordon said in a statement released by the NFLPA. “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.”

So now, Gordon will be out for all of training camp next year, because of how long it took the NFL to come down with this final ruling.
