The Cleveland Browns have suspended former All-Pro WR Josh Gordon for the final game of the season.
Gordon, who began this season on a suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy, has now been suspended by the Browns for violating team rules.
The Browns have not revealed what Gordon did, but this marks his 3rd suspension in three seasons. In 2013 Gordon led the league in receiving yards with 1,646, shattering the Browns franchise record for receiving yards previously held by Braylon Edwards since 2007. His 117.6 yards per game that year were the 6th most in NFL history. He was named to the Pro Bowl and was First-Team All-Pro that year.
But Gordon has had numerous run-ins with the law and incidents of substance use. Gordon missed two games in 2013 for his first drug violation and was initially suspended for the entire 2014 season for his second violation, but a change in the policy resulted in a change.
