We got to see Josh Gordon added to numerous discipline reports. He was disciplined by the league and his own team. Gordon was active in only 10 games between 2014 and 2017, and was then traded to the New England Patriots. It seems like the Cleveland Browns could not handle his character on the field. The league was convinced that Brown would end up doing something so bad that would keep him out of the world of basketball for good.
The former Cleveland Browns star was on a good way to go home, as numerous sources spread rumors about his alleged discipline report. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network was the first to report that Gordon may be kept out of the field for the first quarter of the Patriots’ Monday Night contest against the Buffalo Bills. This was supposed to be part of the discipline for his tardiness.
The information was confirmed by several other sources, and yes, they were all wrong. Gordon played in the first quarter and had a nice contribution to the team. So, everyone was interested in Rapoport’s report, and he had to explain the whole situation on his podcast, RapSheet and Friends. Rapoport said that he was right about the report.
“It was on Monday afternoon, I got a tip that Josh Gordon was informed that he was going to be sitting out a quarter of the game against the Bills because of discipline. I was told he had a lateness so I checked on it. I had three sources confirm that Gordon was informed that he was going to miss a quarter. Other reporters, including Mike Giardi, reported that it wasn’t one lateness, it was actually two. He was late to the team flight and was late to a meeting. I checked all the boxes and went with my report.”
