Tomorrow, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon will have a hearing to determine if his one-year suspension will be reduced by the NFL.
Gordon, who is going to claim at the hearing that his suspension is from second-hand smoke, will have a “slight chance” of a reduced suspension, according to profootballtalk.com. Mike Florio says, “Any dean presumably would entail a suspension for Gordon that lasts less than a year.”
The talented wide out has had problems off the field since coming into the league. Gordon’s hearing will be before hearing officer Harold Henderson. The 23-year-old’s hearing was just a long shot to win earlier this morning.
Mary Kay Cabot wrote in the Cleveland Plain Dealer this morning that “you would have a better chance of convincing your teacher your dog ate your homework.” In her story, she also mentioned that Commissioner Roger Goodell will not be at the hearing.
While he will not be present, Gordon and Goodell is expected to meet next week.
