The NFL announced today that Josh Gordon has been reinstated. But the Cleveland Browns receiver must serve a four-game suspension at the start of the season.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Gordon met in New York a few days ago.
“As we discussed at our meeting, I want nothing more than to see you turn your circumstances around and succeed,” Goodell wrote in a letter to Gordon. “Countless others including your agent, teammates and coaches, Mr. Haslam and the leadership of the organization, the Program professionals and Jim Brown also have pledged to provide you with every resource at their disposal. But as you acknowledged, ultimately, your future is your responsibility. I have every belief that you can make the right choices, but it will be up to you to do so.”
Gordon will be able to report for training camp with the Browns and is eligible to play for the Browns during the preseason.
