According to Cabot, a decision in Gordon’s appeal hearing could take anywhere from one to three weeks.
However, the Browns are reportedly hoping to work out a settlement with the league that would reduce Gordon’s suspension from a full year, to something close to eight games. Although, the team isn’t counting on an agreement at this point in time.
Gordon and his attorney’s maintain that his positive test was triggered by second-hand smoke and point to the fact that he has passed 70 drug tests since 2012.
Gordon is still only 23 years old, and incredibly talented. Even if he were to receive a full year suspension, he would return to the league as a 24-year old, presumably with one less year of wear and tear.
Last year, Gordon caught 87 receptions for 1,646 yards receiving and and nine touchdowns over the course of 14 games.
Well have more regarding Gordon as the news is available.
