Earlier on Friday, we shared a report from The Orange and Brown Report (part of Scout.com) in regard to a rumored incident involving Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon at Cleveland Hopkins Airport. You can read that article here on CSZ or read The OBR’s original thread from Lane Adkins here. The OBR has also just made the article public, you can read that here. **Update 2:09 p.m.** The OBR has since pulled that article from their website.
As always with any reports in the media, we wanted to follow up with all parties involved to provide the most up to date information on the matter.
TSA (Transportation Security Administration) was the first to get back to us.
Mark Howell from their Public Affairs office stated via voicemail, “Josh Gordon did go through security yesterday (Thursday) afternoon. No incident at the TSA checkpoint, no marijuana. Not on our end at least.” I reached back out to Mr. Howell on the phone and he confirmed his voicemail to me and said I should follow up with the Cleveland Police Department as well.
As of the time of this post, the Cleveland Police Department’s Public Relations office has not yet reached back out with a comment at this time. We will update this post with any new information.
**Update at 1:45 p.m.** The Cleveland Police released the following information via their Twitter account:

We also reached out to Gordon’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, for comment on this report as well, and have yet to hear back from him.
