NFL teams were notified on Monday’s official transactions report that Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon remains on the league’s reserve/suspended list.

While Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and a handful of other players who served four-game suspensions to start the season are now eligible to return to their teams, Gordon remains suspended and the Browns do not have to make an official roster move despite Browns coach Hue Jackson saying last week the team is ready “to close that chapter” regarding Gordon.

Gordon checked himself into a treatment center late last week. He hasn’t played since Dec. 2014 after being suspended for all of last season; terms of his conditional reinstatement in July included a suspension for the first four games this season.

  1. Way to go Jimmy Haslam. You just keep hanging on to him. If he gets reinstated make sure you give him a lot of playing time next preseason ,just like you did this one, so that the younger WRs will never amount to anything and you can keep drafting in the top 5 for the next decade.

  2. I’m convinced he’s clean and just doing everything he can to get the Browns to release him. The day after they do, he’ll have his “come to Jesus” moment, and miraculously be ready to roll 24 hours later

    He’s still young enough that at least a couple teams will give him that shot, but he’s too much of a risk, to me, for anyone to give up any draft picks for the chance to take that risk

  3. The Browns currently own his rights this year and the right to make him a restricted free agent in 2017.
    They can leave him in contract limbo by not cutting him.
    He’s not costing a roster space while suspended.
    If he is not reinstated this season then the contract rolls over to 2017-2018 (as it did this year).
    Maybe the Browns can recover some value from a team willing to gamble on his undeniable talent.

  4. Who cares. This guy will never play in the NFL again. And, IF he does, he gets to play for the Browns.
