The charge against the Cleveland Browns wide receiver has been pending since July.
In lieu of a 60-day suspended jail sentence, Gordon received 12 months’ unsupervised probation, a $100 fine and $290 in court costs as a result of the plea, according to the Wake County Clerk of Courts office. He also had his driver’s license suspended.
A league source told ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder that Gordon pleaded guilty Tuesday in the hopes he can avoid a mandatory two-game suspension, which is one of the new rules that would be enacted when the NFL and NFLPA formalize a new drug policy, something that could happen any day.
