Rosenhaus: I'll work with Browns to help Josh Gordon

Agent Drew Rosenhaus plans to huddle with the Cleveland Browns next week to discuss the future of troubled All-Pro wideout Josh Gordon.

"I'm sure I'll get together with the Browns at some point before training camp to talk to them some more about all of our clients," Rosenhaus said Thursday, per Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer. "We're talking to them about Jabaal Sheard and a contract extension and I'm sure we'll talk about Josh some more and continue to work together and do the best job we can for him collectively."

Rosenhaus confirmed that Gordon's appeal hearing will arrive "in the near future," echoing a report from NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, who was told the session would take place at the end of July.

Gordon already faced a potentially lengthy suspension for a positive drug test before his arrest earlier this month on suspicion of DWI.

The receiver's appeal could be nixed if the NFL and NFL Players Association strike a deal on a reduced suspension for Gordon, who was the NFL's leading receiver in 2013.

The expectation, though, is that Gordon could miss the entire season, an ugly fate that forced Cleveland's coaches and front office to begin rethinking their offense months ago. As we noted on Thursday's podcast, we wouldn't be shocked to see a Browns team that led the league in pass attempts last season do the same in carries on the ground in 2014.
