Warrant out for Josh Gordon in paternity case

An arrest warrant has been authorized for suspended Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon after Gordon failed to answer several subpoenas in a child paternity case.

The complaint against Gordon was first filed in July 2015. The warrant was issued by a Cuyahoga Countty judge Aug. 31 after Gordon didn’t respond to subpoenas sent to several different addresses in Los Angeles and Cleveland, Cleveland.com reported.

Gordon has not delivered a DNA sample a court ordered him to submit last September, the warrant says.

The NFL conditionally reinstated Gordon in July, allowing him to participate in training camp and the preseason. He’s been allowed to participate in meetings during his four-game suspension to start the 2016 season.

Gordon is eligible to return to the Browns after two more games, on Oct. 3, and assuming he’s fully reinstated he’ll be able to play Oct. 9 vs. the Patriots.

    This needs to be settled on Maury

    And like most of his tests this will probably end up positive.

    This is typical of too many NFL players. They have kids with several women and are dead beat dads.

    This is what Kaepernick and his sheep should be focusing their attention on in black communities. Too many women with kids and no dad around.

    Classy guy.

    Another bone headed signing by the Browns.

    They have next years number one pick in the bag.

    Unfortunately no Carson Wentz in this year’s draft.

    Just that RGIII clone at Clemson.

    Send the subpoena to the Cleveland Browns HQ, duh.

    “This is what Kaepernick and his sheep should be focusing their attention on in black communities. Too many women with kids and no dad around.”

    While you make a good point, people cannot control what moves them to act or what they are passionate about.

    For instance; there are dozens of cancers that kill people each year, but we generally focus on the ones that affect us directly, or has affected someone we know or love. That’s not to say that we are indifferent to another form of cancer, it’s just that it’s hard to have 100 causes that you are willing to act upon.

    I get your point (which has been shared by others), but I think it’s just not cool to knock someone for their personal choice in a cause.

    dead beat dad should be a suspendable offense as well, more so even than pot – problem is half your DB’s and WRs would be suspended on a given week.

  13. rex2020 says: Sep 21, 2016 1:19 PM

    Nobody wants to focus on these issues. It’s more fun to blame someone else for your all your problems. It’s called not accepting some responsiblity. Can we have Some please. There are some issues in this country and they will never go away completely..however they are not the only problems nor the biggest

    There is no way you’re going to get people to agree with you on this one. You are basing your arguments off logic and common sense. This is the PFT comment boards. Those two things never interact.

  15. mactimo says: Sep 21, 2016 1:22 PM

    He should have broke that route off, instead he went deep

  16. tylawspick6 says: Sep 21, 2016 1:23 PM

    how is this guy still not suspended just for being a moron?

    isn’t this conduct detrimental at this point?

    what us he trying to do, break every possible rule he can break so he can never play again?

    a disgrace

  17. doe22us says: Sep 21, 2016 1:25 PM

    Lets stick with sports and leave the social commentary elsewhere.

    On another notebucrightoff you win the internets for the day lmao.

    So if they arrest him, can he be suspended again?

    Wow, can you imagine if the NFL did this? It’ll never happen, but it would certainly be easier to take them seriously when they talk about integrity and character.

    WTH are talking about??? People don’t act a fool to show support for a “Specific Cancer”…

    The DNA test would clear him and prove he has no financial obligations to the child… unless he did create a human being and wanted to abandon the little baby to its own resources to raise itself.

    If life means so little meaning to Gordon, a good moral society should shun him until he learns to take responsibility. Otherwise he will never learn to be a man.

  27. mackcarrington says: Sep 21, 2016 3:25 PM

    This is a deeply personal issue that doesn’t involve any violence. Does this violate the “Personal Conduct” policy? Say if for example there was a warrant issued for his arrest for failing to pay taxes… Would that also be a “Personal Conduct” violation? Where does the NFL draw the line?

    Bunch of raciest people on here. Us black people take care of our kids just like white folks.

    He should ask Antonio Cromartie for advice…….

  30. tformation says: Sep 21, 2016 4:28 PM

    Josh. Listen to your lawyer. Do what he/she says.

    Seriously, how hard is it to provide a DNA sample? I know the guy’s busy, but you’d think the threat of jail time would encourage him to clear some stuff off his schedule

  31. baltimoresnativeson says: Sep 21, 2016 5:59 PM

    A rare lapse in judgment for an otherwise spotless young man.

  32. charger383 says: Sep 21, 2016 8:29 PM

    Get him back to playing so those kids can eat and have clothes and mama needs her spending money too
