Gordon faces lengthy suspension

2014 NFL Draft 2015 Super Bowl odds Cleveland Browns Josh Gordon Johnny Manziel

A day after selecting polarizing Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel in the first-round of Thursday’s NFL draft (along with Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert), the NFL world found out that Browns’ receiver Josh Gordon is facing a season-long suspension following a second failed drug test (marijuana). The team reportedly knew about the issue before the draft started, but it nevertheless is a massive blow to Cleveland’s offseason.

Now, according to SI’s Peter King, Gordon is likely to be suspended “somewhere between eight and 16 games.” It just all depends on where Gordon is in the NFL’s substance abuse program. If he was in Stage 3 before the failed test ((as was reported by the Cleveland Plain Dealer), then the minimum suspension is one year. If he was in Stage 2, then this latest violation would result in a 4-6 game ban.

Either way the news dampers the excitement that the Browns generated over the weekend. They were praised for the selections of Gilbert and Manziel in Round 1 of the draft and now many pundits are left to wonder if the Browns made a mistake by not drafting a receiver early.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Browns are currently 50/1 long shots to win the 2015 Super Bowl and 25/1 long shots to win the AFC Conference next season.
