Simply No Reason
There is no reason to place our trust in Cleveland Browns’ Josh Gordon. This is an individual who applied for reinstatement after the start of the new year back in March.

By April, we found out he was suspended for reported marijuana use. Gordon was so close to reinstatement, but he couldn’t hold out enough to cross the finish the line.
While individuals can change, they usually don’t transform themselves that quickly. When you consider Gordon’s history with the drug, which date back to college, it’s clear he’s an avid user.
You can forget all the moral and legal ramifications of what Gordon did. Maybe you think marijuana should be legal. Maybe you don’t. Either way, It’s against the NFL rules. This wideout, who was brimming with potential, couldn’t shake the vice, costing him an NFL paycheck.
If you are going to tell me that Gordon changed his ways in 3 1/2 months, I’ve got some ocean-front property in southeast Ohio to sell you.
Perhaps Gordon has finally realized that if he’s ever going to have an NFL career, he should probably play some downs—and that means saying no to the weed. Only time will tell, but it’s a safe bet that Gordon will be suspended again.
There is no reason to. Gordon has betrayed that trust multiple times now. He has to earn his way back the old-fashioned way.
As of right now I am not very excited that he is back yet. I first have to see if Gordon is going to stay with the Cleveland Browns and if he can play to the level we think he can play at.
