Browns say there's 'no huge hurry' to decide Josh Gordon's future with the team - [Full Article]

Browns owner Jimmy Haslam was critical of Josh Gordon on Wednesday, but doesn't sound like he's in any rush to release the former All-Pro receiver.

Gordon is serving his third NFL-imposed ban for violating the league's substance-abuse policy -- this time for a minimum of one year. He played just five games in 2014 after missing the first 10 games for failing a drug test last spring. The club also suspended him for the season finale for missing a walk-through.

Haslam was asked directly if the team planned to cut Gordon. The owner said the length of the suspension gives them time to decide his fate with the franchise.

"That's a decision that we will need to look at make a certain point," Haslam said. "He's out for a year so there's no huge hurry. We'll address that at the proper time."

Fantasy Impact: 

Gordon is a tremendous talent, but has been unable to follow the league's strict substance abuse rules. He's out for the year, so he's not on the redraft radar unless something drastic happens.
