NEWS: Josh Gordon hearing set for late July

According to, the hearing for Browns WR Josh Gordon (suspension) has been set for late July.

SMITTY: A hearing may not be needed if the NFL and the NFLPA decide on a reduced suspension. As it stands now, Josh Gordon is looking at a minimum ban of one year for his latest violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy. Some question what stage (2 or 3) Gordon was at during his recent violation, which is something that could change his length of banishment. We will keep you posted as info rolls in on the matter. For now, it looks like Jordan Cameron will enter 2014 as the favorite to lead the Browns in receptions, and he might just drop 80-90 receptions for 950-1,000 yards and 6-9 scores. His success could be tied to his passer, as Brian Hoyer might be better for Cameron than a still-learning Johnny Manziel — at least for now. Either way, Cameron is a strong fantasy TE1 and could finish inside the top 2-4 tight ends on the season. See where we have him ranked on our 2014 fantasy football cheat sheets.
