Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon walks off

Josh Gordon's return to the National Football League and the Browns remains on hold.

According to USA TODAY's Tom Pelissero, Gordon's application for reinstatement to the National Football League was denied this week with his next application window being kicked out to this fall. Gordon can re-apply again in the fall Pelissero reported. He was conditionally reinstated a year ago with a four-game suspension to start the 2016 season.

Amid reports of another failed drug test, Gordon checked himself into rehab after serving the suspension.

So what should the former Jays slugger expect when his Cleveland Indians face the Jays in the first of a three-game series? On Sunday afternoon Barney broke up a 1-1 tie with a solo home in the 8th inning off Tampa Bay Rays starter Alex Cobb .

August 27, 2014 - Gordon draws his second NFL suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, this time for one full year. Gordon has not played in a regular season game since 2014, but did participate in two preseason games this past season, recording five receptions for 116 yards with one touchdown. He hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since December 21, 2014, and it's unknown whether Commissioner Roger Goodell will ever reinstate him.

The NFL suspended Gordon for 10 games in 2014 for violating the substance abuse policy, and the Browns suspended him for the season finale for missing the final walk-through the day before.

In March, ESPN reported Gordon had been training under former Olympian sprinter-turned-speed coach Tim Montgomery in an effort to resurrect his career.

The Browns signed veteran receiver Kenny Britt in free agency, and are expecting a big year from 2016 first-round pick Corey Coleman in his second season.

"I think what we need to do is just close that chapter right now", Browns coach Hue Jackson said September 30.

July 25, 2011 - Gordon is suspended indefinitely from the program by Baylor coach Art Briles for a violation of team rules. The Browns weren't really expecting to have Gordon back as a part of their offense in 2017.
