ESPN: Josh Gordon Faces Season Ban

((HT: Newsnet5))

For a second failed drug test that, sources are telling TJ Quinn and Don Van Natta, comes from marijuana.

His first suspension came from, what Gordon claimed was taking cough medicine with codeine in it- a violation.

In true Browns fashion, according to the article- the Browns front office folks knew the news, but the coaching staff did not.

The key passage from Quinn and Van Natta:

Reached by phone Friday afternoon, Gordon said: "That's something you're going to have to talk to [agent] Drew Rosenhaus about. I really don't know anything about it."

Asked whether he planned to dispute the test, Gordon said: "I'm going to have to find out about that later. You need to call Drew." Gordon then hung up the phone.

Rosenhaus declined to comment on the specifics of the matter.

A spokesman for the NFL Players Association declined to comment.

The team has picked up two receivers in the off-season including Nate Burleson, and now it will be interesting to see if their new quarterback will have Gordon to throw to as well.
