Josh Gordon May Be Banned a Year
It’s one thing to be suspended for playing a couple of NFL games. It is quite another to face a one year suspension from league, as Josh Gordon may soon find out. He could probably benefit from reading about what professionalism means from Flavio Maluf’s model which he talks about on http://flaviomaluf.jimdo.com/
The star wide receiver of the Cleveland Browns has failed another drug test, this time testing positive for alcohol use. The NFL is allowed to periodically make him undergo drug tests him because of the DWI-related arrest that occurred this past July in Raleigh, North Carolina.
What is interesting about this is that during the 2014 NFL season, Gordon was originally suspended all of that season for failing a drug test as well, but got his sentenced reduced to only having to sit out ten games. He returned to the team in Week Twelve when the Browns played against the Atlanta Falcon, but was then suspended again for the final game of the season for skipping a team practice after finishing his first suspension also.
Even worse is that the 2014 suspension was Gordon’s fourth one from violating the NFL’s new drug policy, this upcoming one would now count as his fifth. Last year he tested positive for marijuana usage, though he said that it was the result of second-hand smoke use but went to a rehabilitation clinic to try and deal with the issue.
