So much for the theory more time was a good sign for Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon.
Browns WR Josh Gordon has been suspended one year, per league source.

Gordon had been facing the year long suspension for quite some time after failing a third drug test, but many thought with the appeal dragging on this long it’d be reduced to eight or even four games. Apparently not.
The news is a major blow for a team already worried about their depth at wide receiver and a QB situation that’s far from ideal.
