Josh Gordon's hearing scheduled for late July

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

With the NFL firing off suspensions today like shots from a Roman candle, some have wondered whether the next shoe will drop on the throat of Browns receiver Josh Gordon.

Per a league source, nothing will be happening today.

But it will be happening sooner rather than later. Gordon’s hearing, we’re told, has been scheduled for late July.

It’s still possible that a hearing won’t be needed, if the NFL and the NFLPA work out a reduced suspension.

Fantasy Impact: 

Gordon actually outscored Calvin Johnson in PPG (16.2 vs. 15.8) and finished as the top fantasy receiver in 2013 despite missing the first two games due to suspension. He’d be a no-brainer top 5 wideout heading into 2014 if not for his pending suspension. We currently have him projected to play eight games, but that may be optimistic.
