Josh Gordon makes surprise announcement, will report to Browns after long absence

Josh Gordon

Cleveland Browns general manager John Dorsey welcomed back wide receiver Josh Gordon with a supportive statement to the media. The wide receiver has said that he typically used alcohol or marijuana when he was anxious, something he can not do without another violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy. The NFL has the call on when Gordon can do more than participate in meetings and work out with his teammates, so the Browns have to wait - and make contingency plans.

Bryant visited the Browns this week but left without a contract, and Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com reports that Bryant is no longer on the front burner, did not come close to reaching an agreement, and is not expected to sign with the Browns any time soon.

Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas get engaged
It's official! Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra confirmed their engagement with a series of sweet Instagram snaps. She had also said they went to the Met Gala together as they were both wearing ensembles by Ralph Lauren.

The former Pro Bowler has missed most of the past five seasons for numerous violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy. "We commend Josh for his hard work, commitment and focus on becoming the best version of himself", Dorsey said. It may take some time for Gordon to get fully acclimated, but his return to the team is some very positive news for the Browns nonetheless.

Josh Gordon is back with the Browns and back on the 90-man roster, but there's no timetable for when he can actually play. This has by no means been an easy road and I'm extremely grateful to have all of you in my life. Days later, ESPN is reporting that Gordon has been cleared to resume practicing with his teammates ahead of the 2nd week of National Football League preseason.
