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.
The Browns released Little last week after signing Miles Austin and Earl Bennett last week.
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.”
