    What’s it mean? Players suspended in 2014 league year get new standards. If approved, Welker & Scandrick play Sun. Gordon more complicated

    From @AlbertBreer & me: Retroactive suspensions has not been divisive for potential new policy. If deal approved, new standards would apply

    Doubt it affects him and even if it did then he will have to serve his domestic suspension as well… He won't be playing this year.

    Has the proposed new policy been leaked?

    no but he could be in the clear 100% for next year and be some serious trade bait.

    Although, if the NFL relaxes on pot and lets him smoke, I would no longer want to trade him.

    How is Josh Gordon more complicated???? They can agree on changing amphetamine policy but not marijuana??? Unreal. The kid had next to nothing in his system. This country continues to live by asinine policies regarding marijuana.

    I am telling you guys, this has a lot more to do with the feds and the NFL's anti-trust exemption than will ever be said.

    Yea great news if he can come back early and just in time to get the book thrown at him for his domestic violence charge in the wake of the Rice disaster.

    I'm guessing it has something to do with the number of times failed and where they were in the program. If nothing else, NFL has showed that they come down much harder on repeat offenders.

    Dwash is a three time loser and subject to a 1-year ban.

    He missed appointments for testing.

    The new threshold for a positive test is thus irrelevant in his case.

    This, if Washington missed his tests. I don't remember if that was the case, but you seem pretty certain of this so I will go with it.

    Gordon's THC count was low enough to argue, and his other sample passed somehow if I remember correctly. D-Wash did n't even contribute a sample, so I doubt there would be any legal grounds to "piss" on because he didn't even follow the program's protocol.

    Well, I'm 'certain' that I read that he may have skipped as many as 5 appointments.

    Agree mostly. They don't want to deal with trafficking laws either--guys taking it on planes and across state lines etc. It's legal in some states and not in others and creates a headache for the league and individual teams.
