Suspended Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has been fighting an uphill battle for months trying to get reinstated into the league.
His latest attempt to make it right included a trip to rehab, as a way to cooperate with the National Football League.
Optimistic note on WR Josh Gordon: Sources said went to rehab 2 months ago in cooperation w/ #NFL in hopes of being reinstated in late Sept

The fact that Gordon resorted to admitting himself into rehab should spark some type of response from the NFL.
Many are of the opinion that Gordon has more than fairly paid his penance for multiple violations of the league’s substance abuse policy earlier in his career.
The 26-year-old Pro Bowl receiver simply wants another chance to play in the NFL. Though, the Cleveland Browns aren’t necessarily committed to him even if he does eventually win his argument for reinstatement.
