Two sources told "Outside the Lines" on Friday that Gordon's latest violation is the result of marijuana being found during a drug test. One source said Gordon received a letter in early winter from a league physician stating he had failed a test. A second letter, informing Gordon that he faced a 16-game suspension but had the right to appeal, was sent in late April.
Gordon also had problems with testing positive for marijuana in college . He was dismissed by Baylor after being suspended twice for marijuana use in 2010.
The 23-year-old Gordon was expected to be the top target for the Cleveland Browns after leading the NFL with 1,646 receiving yards and became the first player with consecutive 200-yard receiving games.
Josh Gordon's agent Drew Rosenhaus denies the allegations
