The Cleveland Browns have been tight-lipped when it’s come to discussion the possible impending suspension of wide receiver Josh Gordon. However, Greg Little isn’t a member of the Cleveland Browns anymore.
Little appeared on SiriusXM NFL Radio with Alex Marvez and Bill Polian and offered a limited commentary on Gordon’s situation with the Browns.
Little called the situation “a mistake” by Gordon but said there is more to the situation than is publicly known.
“He’s a guy that’s going to work to get back and show this is a mistake,” Little said. “It’s something that wasn’t in his control, so to speak. I don’t want to get into too much detail about it.”
Little didn’t elaborate any further on the issue. However, his comments could point toward something other than a direct positive test being the infraction to trigger punishment.
Gordon is appealing the suspension in the hopes of getting the length of the suspension reduced. Gordon served a two-game suspension at the beginning of last season for a separate violation.
Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said he expects Gordon to be in Cleveland “for a long time to come.” It’s a stance Little is happy to see in regards to Gordon.
“In all the years they’ve been throwing [the football] around he’s the only guy to ever put together 200-yard back-to-back games,” Little said.
“That alone [shows] what type of talent he has. I applaud the Browns for sticking by his side.”
