At least Gordon is taking a step in the right direction following his most recent DWI arrest.
Still expected to report to the Browns training camp this week, Gordon, must wait patiently while his future for 2014 unfolds. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport said that Gordon’s appeals hearing for what could be a season-long suspension will take place on August 1.

As previously reported by Browns’ coach Mike Pettine, the team doesn’t have any plans to cut Gordon. And his willingness to seek the help of rehab scores him some brownie points. Hopefully Gordon will continue to get help and get back on the right path of what should be a promising career for the young receiver.
