Wide receiver Josh Gordon is waiting to be reinstated by the NFL after a year suspension.

The NFL spokesman told ESPN Field Yates on the waiting time:

“There is no requirement that a reinstatement decision be made in 60 days. We endeavor to develop the necessary information to make a decision in that time frame, but the actual decisions are made when appropriate.”

Browns new head coach Hue Jackson may not take him back anyway but there are many of rumors that there are teams that will take Gordon with open arms. Before Gordon’s suspension, he led the league in receiving yards in 2013.
Director of football operations Sashi Brown and the new head coach Hue Jackson are more worried about his mind set more than his athleticism:

“Any time we’ve got a player that’s been suspended for that amount of time and had some of the challenges Josh has had thus far in his career, you need to sit down with him and understand where his head is before you bring him back into your locker room.

From everyone I’ve heard, Josh is eager to get back and start playing.

We had some discussions with his representatives at the combine, so we would sit down with him and see where his head is and go from there. The first step, though, obviously is he’s got to be reinstated.” – Brown
