So here we are, almost two-and-half years after Gordon last appeared in a regular-season game and we’re still wondering if he will ever see the field again.
The Browns have given signals that they are ready to move on if the day comes that Gordon is reinstated, but even those are mixed messages, according to some.

The only certainty is that we have not written our last word on Gordon just yet.

Time to accept that Josh Gordon is not coming back (Feb. 14): It is unknown who first said “absence makes the heart grow fonder,” but it is a sentiment that many Cleveland Browns can relate to when it comes to wide receiver Josh Gordon.

Sashi Brown taking right approach with Josh Gordon (March 30): After losing their best wide receiver in Terrelle Pryor, the Cleveland Browns could sure use the talents of Josh Gordon in 2017. Hoping he will not only be reinstated, but will actually play in a game in 2017 is about as much wishful thinking as one can handle, but it is still a possibility.
Rumor: NFL denies Josh Gordon’s bid for reinstatement (May 11): The dream may not be entirely over just yet, but it sounds like it will be delayed yet again as the NFL has reportedly denied the reinstatement bid of Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon.
