REPORT: The NFL Has Denied Josh Gordon’s Reinstatement Petition
Josh Gordon applied for reinstatement from his indefinite ban on March 1 after completing a stint in rehab for weed. According to his business manager, Michael Johnson, Gordon was living with him and “is in the best place mentally that he has been in dating back years before entering the NFL.”
Apparently the league does not feel the same way, as they denied the suspended Cleveland Browns wide receiver’s reinstatement petition.

Gordon turned 26 this past April and hasn’t played in a regular season game since a 5-game stint back in 2014.
