60-Day Deadline Isn't Strict for Josh Gordon's Reinstatement

Yesterday was the 60-day deadline that we believed the NFL had to make a decision on Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon's request for reinstatement to the NFL. Today, though, multiple reports are relaying through a league spokesman that there really isn't a strict deadline; the 60-day window is just a general timeline they like to strive for.

"There is no requirement that a reinstatement decision be made in 60 days. We endeavor to develop the necessary information to make a decision in that time frame, but the actual decisions are made when appropriate."

Both head coach Hue Jackson and executive VP of football operations Sashi Brown were asked about Gordon during the NFL owners meetings. You can read specifically what Brown said over at the Akron Beacon Journal, but the synopsis is basically that they will start crossing the bridge seriously with Gordon once/if he is re-instated. Until then, they really don't want to comment on a whole lot.
