Josh Gordon ticketed for speeding

SpeedRacer

As the appeal of Josh Gordon’s reported suspension moves along slowly, Gordon himself was recently moving very quickly.

Allegedly.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, police ticketed Gordon for speeding over Memorial Day weekend.  A passenger in the vehicle was cited for marijuana possession after the officer detected the odor of it in the vehicle.

Gordon allegedly was driving his Mercedes Benz SUV 74 miles per hour in a 60-mph zone on Sunday, May 25.

The third-year wideout faces a one-year suspension under the league’s substance-abuse policy.  His appeal is pending and, in theory, a decision could come at any time.

Regardless of whether he beats the current suspension, Gordon must submit to up to 10 drug tests per month.  If Gordon is around marijuana smoke, he could end up testing positive even if he didn’t actually smoke it.

If, as Cabot recently told PFT Live, Gordon is in Stage 3 of the substance-abuse program, any positive result would result in a minimum suspension of one-year.

    74 in a 60, throw him in jail asap!!!

  4. wolfies30 says: May 30, 2014 9:50 PM

    74 in a 60 isn’t that fast. It’s still worthy of a ticket, but it’s not like driving 110 in a 35.

  5. GenXJay says: May 30, 2014 9:51 PM

    it’s okay, brownies…right? Johnathan is all you need?

    74 in a 60? Burn him at the stake!

  8. somethingsmellsrotten says: May 30, 2014 9:51 PM

    Really? The ‘passenger’ is cited? Like he wasn’t smoking also…cops giving him a break? This guy will obviously never learn.

  9. mf7krime says: May 30, 2014 9:52 PM

    So. Maybe he was in a hurry to not play any football this season.

  10. jerseyj471 says: May 30, 2014 9:52 PM

    Depends on the levels. If he didn’t smoke, he shouldn’t reach the 14+ parts per thousand. Nice try though Mike.

  11. hugeredskinsfan says: May 30, 2014 9:53 PM

    Leave this man alone. Where else would you find a report for a player speeding??

  12. nomargarciaparra says: May 30, 2014 9:54 PM

    Speed kills

  13. geniusesq says: May 30, 2014 9:54 PM

    74 in a 60 is pretty unremarkable.

    But, my only question is: why the rush bro? You ain’t got no job to get to!!

  14. reggie0525 says: May 30, 2014 9:56 PM

    mariujana worlds most deadliest drug

  15. nyhawkfreak says: May 30, 2014 9:56 PM

    74 in a 60 on Memorial Day weekend? The guy deserves a medal – not a ticket.

    When it rains it pours for this clowns.

    I guess his appeal is going to big on the “contact high” defense.

  16. geniusesq says: May 30, 2014 9:57 PM

    This guy re-defines dumb.

    This guy looked dumb square in the eye and said “I’ll raise you one.”

  17. theuncletodd says: May 30, 2014 9:57 PM

    What a dumb ass. Contact high dumb ass—young and dumb as a box of rocks

    Keep flushing your 2 year career or w/e down the drain kid…

  19. bensstinkyfingers says: May 30, 2014 9:58 PM

    Unbelieveable, so much talent, so little intelligence. If their was any doubt this kid would be suspended for the entire 2014 season, this should end that. Cut your losses brownies, even when he does come back, He’ll be gone again, since he is incapable of learning.

  20. ~Hate~ says: May 30, 2014 9:58 PM

    Dude just can’t stay away from the chronic

  21. doe22us says: May 30, 2014 9:59 PM

    Overzealous cop, but come on dude a passenger with weed, i guess his 10cent brain just sounds about right.

  22. thxelway says: May 30, 2014 9:59 PM

    Really? Claiming he can catch a “contact high”? Come on Florio…. Turn off the Dean Martin, put down the Bourbon, and get with the times….

    Really? 14 mph over the speed limit and 74 mph total. Wow this dude is getting nit picked.

  25. joshhogan73 says: May 30, 2014 10:01 PM

    The marijuana laws in this country are ridiculous.

    Million dollar talent, ten cent head.

  27. yate3097 says: May 30, 2014 10:02 PM

    74 in a 60. That’s pretty much the norm on most roads today. No big deal.

  28. dickshotdogs says: May 30, 2014 10:03 PM

    Funny, I’m watching “Cops” as I read this. But this idiot got caught with meth. Oh well, close enough.

  29. canetic says: May 30, 2014 10:04 PM

    Marijuana may be harmless to most people but it apparently makes millionaires very, very, very, very dumb.

    Make sure you let us know when he goes to the bathroom. That’s a good story too…

    The FBI is easing their marijuana-testing policy for their new employees but the NFL is too important to be making common sense rule-changes like that.

  34. Goodell's Green Glasses says: May 30, 2014 10:09 PM

    Time bomb.

  35. deerhuntinfool71 says: May 30, 2014 10:09 PM

    Im am one of his biggest fans and supporters but he really doesnt want to do well in the nfl or this stuff wouldnt happen. And you know if he gets suspended for the whole year he wont be able to pass a drug test the first week!!! What i wouldnt do to be in his shoes! Unbelievable.

  36. ytownjoe says: May 30, 2014 10:10 PM

    Unbelievable. Does everybody he knows use pot?

  37. sortssux says: May 30, 2014 10:12 PM

    “If Gordon is around marijuana smoke, he could end up testing positive even if he didn’t actually smoke it.”
    What? Absolutely not. Rookie misconception.

  40. mkar1835 says: May 30, 2014 10:15 PM

    Is he hanging out with Jim Irsay?

  41. jtdapit50 says: May 30, 2014 10:16 PM

    Yes! Hes gonna be my fantasy first rounder. And they called me a fool for taking ochocinco in last years first round. WINNING!

    No more excuses for Turd-brain Josh Gordon.

  45. blmonroe12 says: May 30, 2014 10:19 PM

    One day when he’s broke and alone he’s going to wish he had passed on the weed and took advantage of his opportunity to be great.

  46. qdog112 says: May 30, 2014 10:20 PM

    Sure it was the passenger … and the passenger was Johnny Potziel.

  47. ghostfacenoah says: May 30, 2014 10:21 PM

    Gordon is why we have bad impressions of football players. He seems reckless and irresponsible.

  48. pbolyard says: May 30, 2014 10:24 PM

    Really???? Just being around marijuana smoke and he could test positive. Another brilliant remark from PFT

  49. fleaman1381 says: May 30, 2014 10:27 PM

    1.) Great picture.
    2.) Most of us would be lying if we said we went the speed limit on the highway. This doesn’t bother me.
    3.) Gordan, stay away from weed. At the very least wait until after you find out if you are suspended or not before you get associated with marijuana again. This bothers me.

  50. 25cuts says: May 30, 2014 10:28 PM

    A big shame because he could be really good. This guy is definitely not taking advantage of his situation.

  51. htown995 says: May 30, 2014 10:29 PM

    What an idiot u just got suspended for 1 year and your still speeding with pot in the car he will be out of the league in 2 or 3 years

  52. jshawaii22 says: May 30, 2014 10:30 PM

    74 in a 60…. and for that you ‘headlined’ this?

  59. golfrangeman says: May 30, 2014 10:39 PM

    Marijuana!! What a joke. I can’t believe they even test for that.

  60. mburkett1980 says: May 30, 2014 10:40 PM

    Yeah, I’m sure it was “his passenger that had it” or that they weren’t on their way to go smoke it somewhere.

    This guy is sick.

  61. edwinmoses says: May 30, 2014 10:40 PM

    Wait a minute…so he’s tested positive for marijuana multiple times…AND he has been caught “speeding” at 74mph? Why do we allow these hardened criminals who want nothing more than to bring down this society to be free?

    I’ve been a fan of this kid since the begining and i’ve been rooting for him to get his life together but this is getting flat out ridiculous

  74. bobzilla1001 says: May 30, 2014 11:12 PM

    Un-effing-believable.
    I am not a Browns fan in the least, but this guy Gordon is a real piece of work.
    I can remember hearing rumors after the 2004 season that the Steelers wanted rid of Plaxico Burris because they thought he might be a “bad influence” on Roethlisberger. The same might apply to Gordon and Manziel.

  75. nostalgicsound says: May 30, 2014 11:14 PM

    Wow must be a slow news day if him getting a citation for 14 over. I understand he’s in deep poop for all the substance abuse stuff but why a class C misdemeanor speeding ticket makes headlines is basically kicking the guy while he’s down..

  84. chicagosports2014 says: May 30, 2014 11:19 PM

    Gordon need some smoke to mello him out, give the kid a break let him back in the league📲

  85. rukkus1 says: May 30, 2014 11:20 PM

    Only 74? The freeways in Seattle are usually 70 in the slow lane unless it’s rush hour.

    As per league policy on traffic tickets, Josh Gordon will lose a limb, the second offense is death by firing squad.

  88. mrbigass says: May 30, 2014 11:22 PM

    He’s blowed up now……

  89. rukkus1 says: May 30, 2014 11:23 PM

    Btw… to test positive by just being around someone smoking weed… you have to be stuck in a small room with Bob Marley, Willie Nelson, George Clinton AND Bill Clinton to get it to show up in your system.

  90. gary2525 says: May 30, 2014 11:28 PM

    This guy is a idiot. Your appealing your failed drug test but then u go and hang out with people who have Weed on them real smart D bag. Cleveland should trade him now while he still has a chance to play cause when next off season comes around he will be done for life.

  91. Big Ant TV says: May 30, 2014 11:34 PM

    is he doing this too get cut or released by the browns?

  92. onenineninee says: May 30, 2014 11:34 PM

    So? This somehow warrants a front page story? Ah wait, pot smoker, reckless driver, possibly a homicidal maniac. What else could he be hiding?

  94. ttommytom says: May 30, 2014 11:35 PM

    He’s speeding and someone is smoking weed in the car. While an indefinite suspension looms.

    You just can’t make this stuff up.

    He’s done. He just does not get it.

  111. harrisonhits2 says: May 30, 2014 11:57 PM

    There will be a lot of negative comments about this no doubt, mostly from people who speed just as much over the speed limit every single day as he was going.

  112. vaughnjoe says: May 30, 2014 11:57 PM

    I must say I’m loving these new graphics. Speed Gordon has a long time to think about getting his life together. Too bad he hasnt started yet.

  119. oldcracker says: May 31, 2014 12:43 AM

    Neither speeding nor the pot is the story. It’s Gordon’s ignorance or totally lack of reality that is the story here.

    While I don’t agree that your actions BEFORE signing a contract should be held against you, once you do sign that contract, you accept your employer’s rules….lock, stock and barrel. He has already violated the NFL rules multiple times, and here he sits, waiting to hear the outcome of his recent appeal. Anyone but a self-destructing knucklehead would be on their best behavior and going to nightly prayers, begging for another chance. And, what kind of friends would put Josh into this situation? With friends like that,….

    Goodbye Josh, we barely knew you.

    As a Steelers fan, Florio will always lay the lumber to the Browns, Ravens, and Bengals. PFT/NBC should ban him from reporting on the NFC North…

  125. kernzo says: May 31, 2014 1:35 AM

    I meant AFC North. I love Pabst Blue Ribbon…

  126. glevers says: May 31, 2014 1:51 AM

    I was hoping that news was coming any day that Gordon’s suspension would be reduced to a few games due to the impending changes to the CBA on the impact of positive marijuana tests. Now I don’t care. This guy redefines stupid. Any lucid person in his situation would be chilling it at a friend’s house – not driving a smoky car too fast. And, of course, once he’s on his own for a year, he will never play another down in the NFL. What a waste.

  127. urbusted2 says: May 31, 2014 2:43 AM

    I’m surprised you didn’t place Haslem in the car somehow.

  128. abreathofsanity says: May 31, 2014 3:43 AM

    He’s going to try and get suspended for 2 years so he can have Jamies Winston as a quarterback.

  129. bleedingfacemask says: May 31, 2014 4:11 AM

    Dayem, lots of people here think doing 74 in a 60 zone is no big deal.

    How do you think the city makes money off speeding tickets? Giving everybody a free pass under 15mph over the limit?

    If he were driving a rusty Pinto, they might not bother if waiting for somebody with money. And he was driving a Benz SUV. Cop knew he’s somebody with money who won’t bother trying to fight the ticket, so the cop doesn’t have to waste his time showing up in court.

    The best part for the cops: most people who go over 10mph above the limit are also stupid. “Hey, let’s smoke some weed…oh yeah, hold my beer and watch this as I hit the gas.”

  130. logics71 says: May 31, 2014 4:28 AM

    Some of you readers are just not getting the whole picture. It’s really not a big deal when you are caught speeding and it’s not over 15 mph. It’s not even reckless driving! But when you’re facing a year long suspension from the NFL for substance abuse violations. Why the hell would you do something so stupid when you have a passenger sitting next to you with weed and you still going through your own problems? He is an idiot!! and will not realize how blessed he is until he’s banned from the NFL altogether.

    Just plain dumb. It’s hardly speeding. It’s not smoking . It’s just pot. That’s not the point. How dumb can this guy be?

    It takes more than athletic talent to win in the NFL. Looks like AFC North teams are checking themselves out of the running one by one. Ravens, Browns, Bengals. Guess whose left.

    What’s it take to keep this guy away from drugs?

  134. bucsorbust says: May 31, 2014 6:49 AM

    Usually these guys don’t start screwing up until after OTAs and before camp. They are starting early this year. Play clean, and play good in the NFL and you can be set for life. But you can throw it away in ONE SECOND and then you’re NOTHING. Knock it off guys!

    To me the story here is not the speeding. Who cares about that. It’s a HUGE indication of this idiot’s mental capacity to even be around someone with weed. The fact that he can’t be man enough to do what’s legally right even as he’s faced with a season long suspension proves he is a moron. He has clearly made a choice to smoke weed instead of e a professional athlete. Stop smoking. Play out your short career and make your money. Then smoke weed when it’s done. You’ll still be young enough to party even when you retire because te average career is so short anyway.

  136. bullcharger says: May 31, 2014 7:26 AM

    Why on earth would he be in a car with someone smoking. That means he’s done. He won’t make it back… He’s going to blow another test and get suspended for another year. Goodbye career.

    It’s millions of dollars!!! A condition of collecting the money is not smoking weed! Have some discipline for 5 to 10 years and then move to Colorado and smoke your brains out when you retire!

    The guy is so talented… What a shame that no one can talk any sense into him.

    So which one was Gordon, Cheech or Chong?

  138. kingpel says: May 31, 2014 8:39 AM

    He dodged a bullet on this one. No doubt the passenger took the rap for him on the weed charge. Chances of him having a good career look to be at about zero at this point. No discipline at all even when he is under a ton of scrutiny.

  139. kingpel says: May 31, 2014 8:41 AM

    I don’t think people read the article. They just post on the speeding ticket headline. Welcome to the modern age where it is encouraged to just judge the book by its cover.

  140. wisconsinhillfolk says: May 31, 2014 9:06 AM

    He’s already pulled over… He can’t pull over anymore!

  141. 1bigtex says: May 31, 2014 9:42 AM

    Josh Gordon is one of the most physically gifted WRs in the league. He made multiple bad decisions in college. He appears to be following that same pattern in the pros. Physical gifts without mental discipline are pretty useless.

    What’s that old saying? “The best prediction for future behavior is found in past behavior.”

  142. buckeyeinca says: May 31, 2014 10:00 AM

    Cleveland is my hometown and I lived there for 30 years. The reason that he got pulled over is because that spot is a notorious speed trap. Has been for as long as I can remember. There’s a local cop with radar there virtually 24/7/365. They will pull anyone over for only 10 mph over the speed limit. Everyone knows this. Whenever I go back to visit family, I always slow down going through there. So, just another indication that JG is a dunce.

  143. mackcarrington says: May 31, 2014 11:54 AM

    74 in a 60 zone isn’t that bad in itself, but if you’re carrying anything, you should at least watch the limit.

  144. pittsteelers101 says: May 31, 2014 12:18 PM

    If Will Hill from the giants is suspended only 6 games for his third failed drug test then josh should only get 6 games! Goodell favors the giants all the time !

    the greatest plant in the universe is almost free, LET FREEDOM RING! 13

    as Congress just passed a bill defunding the DEA against Medical Marijuana States, LOVE IT…wouldn’t work for someone who denied my freedoms for all the money in every land, ever…freedom is priceless and worth infinite the amount of all the gold in eternity

    ENLIGHTENMENT…i was a brainwashed, evil, mean, christian conservative until i tried it at 17 years old…i hated gays, immigrants, women’s rights, blacks, i was Rush Limbaugh’s #1 fan….until i smoked marijuana….changed my life…took me 1 year/senior year to legalize it in cali…the rest is history

    1000s of my friends and family have grown 30-99 plants for 20 years, thanks for keeping prices high and NORCAL wealthy…#1 crop in cali = $15 Billion Untaxed…

    “any doctor against marijuana is a doctor of death” – cali secret 420

    from 0 states to half the country, from low 20% approval to almost 70%, cali runs this planet by 2 decades, time to tie marijuana to the 2014, 2016 elections, out with the old, in with the new

    20 years behind us southern states and NFL, sad and scary….nobody denies freedoms like the south, nobody…the top ten incarcerators on the planet are southern states and more blacks are in prison then were slaves before the civil war…even if marijuana reforms did pass the republiCANTS in charge would deny you all your freedoms, centuries of practice…no matter though, we never planned on getting your backwards brethren from day one, half the country already but not one southern state, lol…not 1….the new generations are taking over in the south and they are nothing like their freedom denying parents, let’s ride…

    Deaths by Alcohol: Millions
    Deaths by Tobacco: Millions

    Meh, as a Browns fan I don’t really think this is a big deal. It’s news-worthy, but not a big deal.

    The NFLPA is re-vamping the penalty for smoking marijuana.

    Greg Little said on a local radio station that he won’t get into the details of Josh’s situation (still none are released) but it was “out of his control.”

    A recent article from PFT on Will Hill indicates that he believes he was suspended because of second hand smoke.

    If Greg Little stated it was “out of his control” then the NFL is banning for second hand smoke of marijuana.

    Sure, you can have the people outcry “HE SHOULD NEVER BE WITHIN 40 YARDS OF THAT PLANT!” but the truth is, as a nation, we are understanding it isn’t as big of a deal as everyone made it out to be when originally banned.

    This is coming from a non-pot smoker by the way. And yes, I have a lot of friends that smoke pot and I am constantly around them.

    Get rid of radar and stupid marijuana laws

  148. finfanjim says: May 31, 2014 2:33 PM

    74 in a 60 is absolute middle of the road. Speed doesn’t kill, differential in speed is what does. I was waiting to see 110 in a 55. Total non issue.

    The friend with weed, on the other hand…

  149. kenny2neworleans says: May 31, 2014 2:45 PM

    Good thing he won me a fantasy title last year!

  150. datageek94 says: May 31, 2014 8:52 PM

    As alluded to by one commenter here, marijuana was demonized as part of a power grab by a politician over 75 years ago. Yes, I believe it is absolutely improperly classified by the federal government, and I suspect marijuana will be fully decriminalized/legalized/whatever in the next five years. But that’s not relevant.

    At this time, marijuana is classified as it is by the feds. And it’s included in the personal conduct policy. So players, who have an average career of what, 4 years? need to stay away from it. and they need to stay away from “friends” who partake as they will continue to smoke as well. “Bad association spoils useful habits.”

    The thing here is the stupidity on the part of the player facing a suspension and:
    1. being with someone holding and/or consuming pot
    2. having that person in your car with you
    3. smoking (in all likelihood) marijuana with your companion
    4. exceeding the speed limit at all.

    The rule I’ve always heard is that tickets come when you break the limit by 10 mph, not 15. He should have been pulled over, he should have been ticketed, and oh, by the way, this will endanger your personal career (you moron).

    Those of you shaming the highway patrol officer: shame on you.

    The NFL should allow marijuana use, end of story.
