WR Josh Gordon, KC


Recommended Posts

Updating an earlier item, Josh Gordon's reinstatement hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.

It makes it less likely that Gordon's rights are traded ahead of Tuesday's deadline, but it's still a possibility. It's also possible Gordon is simply waived upon reinstatement, though the receiver-desperate Browns may think twice about that.

Kizer to Gordon.  

 

poor ball placement and incorrect routes.  

 

just imagine all the interceptions.  

That..... could actually work. If Gordon runs the wrong route, he is theoretically more likely to be in better position to catch Kizer's poorly placed throw.

Does Goodell have 60 days after the hearing to decide if he'll let Gordon back in or will that decision be made on Wednesday? If he's let back in is he subject to a four game suspension?

 

My understanding is Goodell can take as long as he'd like to decide. I don't remember the name but there's one dude that's been waiting for three years.

I just wanna know why the hell he waited so long to apply for reinstatement. I mean, the day after the trade deadline? It's almost as if he wants to be a Brown...

We have no idea what information and directives have gone back and forth. Maybe the league said he couldn’t do anything until November 1st.

We also don't know if he has actually applied weeks ago for reinstatement and is heading to NY for the decision on something he applied for back in September.

That's very unlikely. Someone would have leaked this.

Are you questioning Gordon's thoughtfulness and foresight? How dare you!

Fair enough and not going to go around and around but not how I see it.  Goodell has taken weeks to make reinstatement decisions in the past, I just don't think that this happens in one meeting so if he's going to NY to get Goodell's decision I think he already applied. That's my best guess, but I sure think it's possible for him to apply and it not be leaked, especially if Gordon was not wanting it leaked.

am a bit confused on the whole timeline so it's certainly possible or maybe even Goodell committed to an expedited reinstatement process if Gordon satisfied whatever requirements he had for him (like 3 months of rehab and X amount of days clean or something). I wouldn't be totally shocked if my phone alerts me this afternoon that Gordon has been awarded full reinstatement immediately. 

Not expecting it but it wouldn't shock me.

I think he has 60 days from reinstatement to render a ruling.

 

Last time he applied they reported he applied first few days in March. The news that he was not getting reinstated did not break until May 11th, so a little over 60 days.

 

Mary Kay Cabot had reported earlier that he was given a date in September he could apply, I think a specific date she provided, want to say Sept. 23rd but don't quote me on that.

 

That timeframe makes sense to me based on Goodell's history that he might have already applied. I find that scenario more likely than fact Goodell took his full 60 days last time and this time will render a decision on the spot but that's just a connect the dots guess.

Imagine believing that this guy is going to hold any type of fantasy value this year?

Even if he doesn't get reinstated he still holds more fantasy value this year than any WR currently starting for the Browns.

I've since moved on, but another patsy in my league has taken up the Josh Gordon obsession and has since added and dropped three times.

As I see it:

1. He must have applied for reinstatement, as he is in NY today supposedly at the league office.  Or at the very least, he's talking to them about reapplying.

2. If reinstated, he either gets cut or he remains a Brown.

3. It probably takes him a couple weeks to practice and learn the playbook with whatever team he is going to. 

The big questions is, if he does get reinstated, is he still slapped with a 4 game suspension?

Had a roster spot and was tempted to pick up Gordon on the way, way, way off chance that he sees the field this year and the way, way, wayer off chance that he returns to form on a terrible Browns team.

But opted to pick up Paul Richardson instead.
