Report: Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon's bid for reinstatement denied by NFL

Cleveland Browns fans who remember Josh Gordon probably still won’t get to see him on the field in 2017.

USA Today reports the All-Pro receiver’s bid for reinstatement from a suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy has been denied by the NFL. 

Per the report, the 26-year-old can reapply for reinstatement this fall.

Gordon last played in an NFL game in 2014.

He was an All-Pro in 2013 when he caught 87 passes for 1,646 yards.
