Josh Gordon is arguing his appeal on August 1st in NY, NY. His argument states that he is a victim of second hand smoke of marijuana and that his test results are questionable. It's unclear how anyone will react but it's obvious that the public thinks negatively about Ray Rice's two-game suspension and Gordon's supposed on year suspension.
Ray Rice knocked out his-then fiance- after a night of drinking and makes Gordon's marijuana problem (which could turn out to be a year suspension) look like a slap on the wrist. Well, the substance-abuse penalties were negotiated in the Collective Bargaining Agreement. And as for the Personal Conduct decisions; those are up to commissioner, Roger Goodell. Gordon has tried to seek out the same lawyer who represented Richard Sherman, to take on his case.
Gordon has been practicing and getting reps with the 2nd stringer's and 3rd stringer's but also hasn't been trying to confuse the starters and giving them false hope. It's only on occasion that he's with the starters. It puts the Brown's in a tough balancing act if they have to split their time between wide receivers and knowing Josh Gordon's presence could be temporary.
