That's the word from ESPN's Outside the Lines, which broke the news just before the second day of the draft got underway.
Gordon can appeal, but if the Browns lose him it would be a crippling blow to the team's receiving corps, which would look like this if Gordon is suspended, with career catches:
Travis Benjamin, 23 catches, 403 yards, two TDs
Nate Burleson, 457 catches, 5,630 yards, 39 TDs
Josh Cooper, 11 catches, 166 yards, 0 TDs
Tori Gurley, 1 catch, 15 yards, 0 TDs
Andrew Hawkins, 86 catches, 995 yards, four TDs
Charles Johnson, 0 across the board
Greg Little, 155 catches, 1,821 yards, eight TDs
Conner Vernon, 0 across the board
The Browns can add a rookie through the draft (with the third round approaching), but the top three at this moment would be Burleson, Little and Hawkins.
The only saving grace: Name Seattle's starting receivers in their Super Bowl win.
So, there's that.
