Should the NFL reinstate Josh Gordon?

It’s been two seasons since NFL fans have seen Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon lighting up defenses. The NFL hasn't reinstated Gordon for his violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy. This seems especially harsh given he was smoking marijuana, while Ray Rice and Josh Brown were only given two and one-game suspensions, respectively, for domestic abuse. But some argue that until Gordon proves he is over his drug use he shouldn’t be allowed to return. What do you think? 🏈

NFL fans are missing out on the incredible talent that is Gordon. As of now, the NFL will not reinstate Josh Gordon after his repeated violations of the league's drug policy. Should he be able to return to the NFL?

It's a crazy time when domestic abusers get a more lenient suspension than someone who smokes a plant with medicinal properties. The NFL has made a name for itself with inconsistent punishments, and they laid a big egg by not reinstating Gordon. 

The Cleveland Browns receiver made mistakes by violating the league's drug policy repeatedly. But he has been away from the game long enough to recover from whatever issues he's dealing with to play the game that is his livelihood. Gordon should be let back into the league.

Marijuana is still a federal crime, and much like the rest of the business world, the NFL has a policy that doesn't allow its employees to smoke cannabis. As much as fans want to cry about it, Gordon violated league rules repeatedly and has faced reasonable consequences. 

The NFL doesn't need a liability by allowing a marijuana smoker to influence its young fans, or underperform in games due to his drug use. If the NFL decides to never reinstate Gordon, it is the league's call to make because it is the NFL's reputation on the line.
