NFLPA Response

I asked the NFLPA what the new drug policy would mean for Browns receiver Josh Gordon. Here was their response:

“The Board of Player Representatives gave the NFLPA authority to complete new policies with the League consistent with detailed term sheets the players reviewed. We hope to have final agreements, including effective date for players with adjusted discipline, very soon.”

Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer and ESPN’s Adam Schefter have both reported that Gordon’s suspension will end up being ten games. One week of that suspension will have already been served with Gordon missing the game against the Steelers. However, that ten week total does not include any potential punishment (likely two weeks) for a DUI arrest. Gordon’s hearing on that is in November.
