05:34 PM ET 06.07 | Browns receiver Josh Gordon has been suspended for the first two games of the 2013 season and fined an additional two game checks for violating the NFL substance abuse policy. Gordon had a history of positive tests for marijuana at Baylor and Utah. He was kicked out of both schools and entered the supplemental draft last summer. While those positive tests made him a high risk player, they did not carry over into the NFL. Otherwise, a source said, he could have been suspended longer, per the league???s drug policy. According to a statement from the NFL, Gordon will be eligible to return to the Browns??? active roster on Monday, September 16 following the team???s September 15 game against the Baltimore Ravens.

You get fired from most jobs for this but the New Felon League is apparently one of those "second chance" employers.

I've been hearing it was codeine from dental work being done. Why does it seem like these guys with valid prescriptions keep getting popped?
