That's the word from ESPN's Outside the Lines, which broke the news just before the second day of the draft got underway.

Gordon can appeal, but if the Browns lose him it would be a crippling blow to the team's receiving corps, which would look like this if Gordon is suspended, with career catches:
The Browns can add a rookie through the draft (with the third round approaching), but the top three at this moment would be Burleson, Little and Hawkins.

The only saving grace: Name Seattle's starting receivers in their Super Bowl win.

Answer: Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse, with Percy Harvin third and Golden Tate fourth.

So, there's that.
