Every Browns media site has voiced theories about why the appeals process for Josh Gordon's impending suspension has taken such a lengthy time to resolve. Today, Mike Florio at PFT has shed some light on these details, here.
Florio's sentiment in the article is decidedly Pro-Gordon, and many NFL experts have voiced similar concerns about the "Draconian" drug testing policy, especially when compared with the lenient stance on sex offenders and wife-beaters.
The best quote from the article may be the following:
"The NFL clearly got it wrong with Ray Rice. The NFL has a chance to get it right with Josh Gordon."
UPDATE: Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, his sources agree verified PFT's report. Schefter also states that Gordon's defense will be that the values in the sample were the result of second-hand smoke, and they will have witnesses on hand to back up Gordon's claims.
Josh Gordon will dispute test results, as @profootballtalk also reported, and argue they came from 2nd-hand smoke. http://t.co/E2YWeSmO7g— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 29, 2014
