The Browns have no plans to cut Gordon, and the team expects him to report to training camp Friday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "We're expecting him to report on Friday and be on the field," coach Mike Pettine said. "We have no plans to cut him I know there's been a lot of debate over that, but I don't see us having that debate."
Analysis: After a number of run-ins with the law this offseason, Gordon is facing an indefinite suspension from the league for multiple violations of the substance abuse policy. He intends to appeal the suspension, but if he loses, he'll need to wait a full year before applying for reinstatement. Regardless, despite the distraction, the Browns appear committed to holding onto Gordon and helping him through his off-the-field issues. "If any of our players are in need of help, we'll do our best to provide it for them and also that we're going to do what we feel is best for the organization," Pettine said. "By league guidelines, whatever help we can provide him, we're going to do it. A Cleveland Brown is a Cleveland Brown. If we feel we can help him, let's help him. Sometimes you're handcuffed by the situation, so until it plays out then there's really nothing tangible we can do at this point."
