It’s not exactly NFL-type money, but suspended Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon will reportedly be spending his downtime selling cars in rural Ohio.
ESPN’s Josina Anderson reports that Gordon will be the “Goodwill Ambassador” for the Sarchione Auto Group in Randolph, Ohio, which includes Sarchione Ford and Sarchione Chevrolet. Per Anderson, Gordon, the 2013 leader in receiving yards, will work in all aspects of their car business, including on-floor sales and heading up local community efforts with the Wounded Warriors project.
Gordon, suspended for the season due to a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy, had attempted to seek employment within the Canadian Football League, but was subsequently blocked from doing so by the Browns as the player is still under contract. The reasoning behind such an inquiry is still unknown.
Like his non-suspended teammates, Gordon starts this weekend.
