Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has fully accepted his season-long suspension as he will not sue the NFL or fight it regardless of any drug policy change.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has been suspended for the entire 2014 season for a repeated violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy.
The troubled receiver lost his appeal. He has no plans to sue the league over his suspension and will move on regardless of whether the drug policy is changed.
Gordon told ESPN about how he desires to move on from this ordeal. “The whole being in limbo thing, I’m over it. I’m not waiting on the edge of my seat anymore,” the wide receiver said.
The suspended receiver had tested positive for marijuana twice and was later arrested on DWI charges. Gordon temporarily entered rehab although he does not consider himself an addict.
He later left the facility to show up for the Browns’ training camp and appeal his suspension.
Gordon is currently working as a car salesman to hold himself over until he can return to playing in the NFL.
