Suspended Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon will report to work this upcoming weekend. But it won’t be to suit up against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the team’s first regular season game.
Instead, the troubled young receiver will take on a new gig while under suspension (via Josina Anderson, ESPN).
Browns WR Josh Gordon has a new job. He will be the goodwill ambassador for the Sarchione Auto group in Randolph, Ohio, which includes Sarchione Ford and Sarchione Chevrolet . He will be working in all aspects of their car business including as an on-floor salesman. Gordon will also be heading all of their local community efforts including with the Wounded Warriors Project. He starts this weekend.
Just imagine going car shopping for a used Chevy and having the Pro Bowl receiver help you. A receiver that led the entire NFL in yards last season.
In all seriousness, this might very well be good for Gordon. It should keep him out of trouble with all the off time that he will have on his hands. It will also be a humbling experience for someone who was looking at a multi-million dollar contract right in the face prior to his recent issues with both the NFL and the law.
