The NFL has denied Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon's application for reinstatement, a league source told ESPN's Pat McManamon, confirming a report by USA Today Sports.
He applied in early March. He can reapply for reinstatement in the fall.
Gordon's saga continues, but it may be nearing its end. He hasn't played since 2014, and doesn't look like he's any closer to returning to action. This news is a boost for both Kenny Britt and Corey Coleman, who should see the majority of targets in Cleveland.
