Cleveland, OH, United States (4E Sports) – Suspended Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has applied for reinstatement after he was banned for a year for repeated violations of the league’s substance abuse policy.

Last year, commissioner Roger Goodell has suspended Gordon for one year for failing an alcohol test.

Based on league policy, Gordon can apply for reinstatement within 60 days of his suspension ending. The commissioner has 60 days to decide whether to allow Gordon back or not.

If allowed, Gordon is under contract with the Browns for 2016 for almost $1.1 million. He will be a restricted free agent after the 2016 season.

In 2013, Gordon led the league in receiving yards with 1,646 despite playing just 14 games.

However, he violated the league’s substance abuse policy several times.
