“What’s taking the NFL so long with the Josh Gordon stuff?” is the question I’m asked the most frequently lately. Finally, I’ve got an answer for you.

It seems that Josh Gordon’s camp, basically consisting of his agent Drew Rosenhaus and legal team, are threatening to take the NFL to court if Gordon is suspended for the entire year.

The NFL’s appointed arbitrator has been running a stall game in an attempt to allow the NFL and Gordon to reach some type of negotiated settlement. Gordon’s team has held firm in their unwillingness to talk any deal however. They believe they have at least even odds in any legal showdown.

It further helps Gordon’s position that the NFL has clearly lost in the court of public opinion. With their leniency with Ravens RB Ray Rice, most football fans feel that it’s outrageous to out Gordon for 12 months over a barely failed drug test.

The longer this drags out, the more ground the League loses, as such a late ruling puts the Browns in an very unfair position, and it’s entirely the NFL’s fault for the delay.

While it’s possible that Gordon may end up taking a deal, to this point his camp has been resolute in their refusal to even come to the table.

    Very, very interesting wrinkle to the story. Would make complete sense. Mind if I ask how you came across this? Haven’t seen or heard it anywhere else and didn’t notice a link.

    Have really, really enjoyed your work since stumbling across this site a few months ago…and you seemed to be out front on the last front office thing

    So wait… Upon what information is this answer based? It appears to me this is merely based on how “it seems” to you. It seems to me this “news” is mere speculation.
