Browns Suspended WR Josh Gordon Doing “Outstanding,” Eligible For Reinstatement Feb. 3

Mary Kay Cabot reports that Browns suspended WR Josh Gordon is eligible to apply for reinstatement to the NFL on February 3.

According to Cabot, Gordon is doing “outstanding.”

Browns QB Johnny Manziel told reporters that he’s been in “constant contact” with Gordon during his suspension.

Yeah, I still talk to Josh every week, so we’ve been in touch constantly throughout the season,” said Manziel, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “I got a chance to see him. I invited him down to the A&M game whenever I went back (after the) Thursday night game (in Cincinnati), so like I said, we’ve been in constant contact.”

Gordon, 24, would have had just one more year remaining on his four-year, $5.342 million rookie contract that$3.8 million included guaranteed.

However, Gordon’s suspension will prevent him from becoming an unrestricted free agent after the 2015 season. Ian Rapoport mentioned a while back that Gordon’s suspension will keep be under contract through the 2016 season before becoming a restricted free agent in 2017.

In 2014, Gordon appeared in five games and caught 24 passes for 303 yards receiving, but didn’t score a touchdown.

We’ll have more regarding Gordon’s return to the Browns as the news is available.
