USA (PRWEB) September 26, 2014
As reported by USA Today in the article NFL, NFLPA Finalize New Substance Abuse Policy (9/19), the NFL has reached a conclusion on its new substance abuse policy, which will allow recently suspended players such as Josh Gordon, to come back onto the team earlier than originally thought. Gordon was originally suspended for violations of the NFL's old substance abuse policy. He will be able to return to the team starting November 17. Gordon expressed happiness that the NFL and NFLPA were able to construct a new policy. Gordon has claimed to be receiving treatment and counseling during his suspension. According to the Cleveland Browns, the team that Gordon plays for, says that they are looking forward to having Gordon back and will continue to support him.
The new policy rewrote its performance-enhancing drug provisions that allowed three other suspended players to return to the field as early as this week. It has rewritten its DUI provisions to include an unpaid two game suspension for a first offense and an eight game suspension for a second offense. It has also mandated blood-testing to find any players who are using human growth hormone. Proponents of the new policy believes that it will raise NFL standards and will set the tone for drug policies in other sports. The NFL Players Association believes that the new policy is fair and that it will protect the integrity of football.
