Josh Gordon could take legal action against NFL

Josh Gordon could take legal action against NFL

A decision on whether Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon will take legal action could come down within the next day or two according to reports.

Gordon lost his appeal last Wednesday in which he blamed his failed drug test on second hand smoke. If Gordon decides to sue the league he could seek an injunction that would block the suspension, which would allow Gordon to play week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. If Gordon decides not to sue he would remain suspended for the entire 2014 season.

Last season Gordon was suspended for four games for a failed drug test, but won his appeal and only served two games, with four games unpaid. When he came back from suspension he posted huge numbers leading the league in receiving with 1,646 yards in only 14 games. He was also named to his first Pro Bowl.

Losing Gordon is obviously a huge blow to the Browns offense. He caught 87 passes for 1646 yards, and 9 touchdowns for the Browns last season.
