Suspended Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon will work as a car salesman / goodwill ambassador for an auto group in Ohio.

Suspended Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon will work as a car salesman / goodwill ambassador for an auto group in Ohio. 

Gordon will work 40 hours weekly for the Sarchione Auto Group in Randolph, Ohio, per a Sept. 4 update from The Northeast Ohio Media Group's Mary Kay Cabot:

"Browns receiver Josh Gordon will be putting in a 40-hour work week learning the automotive business during his suspension, Jeff Sarchione, co-owner of the Sarchione Auto Group in Randolph, Ohio, told Northeast Ohio Media Group on Thursday.

"'He's going to put his time in,' Sarchione said. 'He'll be everything from a salesman to attaching himself at the hip with my brother and I just learning the automotive business from top to bottom.'

"Sarchione said Gordon will also have a gym membership as part of his employment with the Chevrolet and Ford dealerships and will be working out there regularly.

"'It will be a benefit for everyone,' Sarchione said. 'I'm excited for him.'

"Sarchione and his sister-in-law, Alex Sarchione, reached out to the All-Pro and members of his business team to set up the opportunity. He said Gordon expressed a sincere interest in learning the industry.

"'Obviously Josh's priorities are to the Cleveland Browns and to the NFL, but he's not going to play football for his whole life,' said Sarchione. 'This can help him grow in something after football. He can learn from our family business, and we're expanding and this is the next step.'

"Sarchione said Gordon will be selling cars at both Portage County dealerships and at their used-car dealership in Alliance, Ohio. 

"'If you want to buy a car or truck from Josh, you'll be able to do that,' said Sarchione. 'He will do everything my brother and I do.' 

"Sarchione said he wants to get Gordon into a Ford F-150, but knows he might have to paint it camouflage, like Gordon's Porsche.

"In addition, Gordon will be the auto group's goodwill ambassador, working at local food drives and with the Wounded Warrior Project, a program to help veterans.

"'We're still very early in the planning stages of this, but he might also get involved with some local schools and their football programs,' said Sarchione.

"Sarchione said he feels that working for the auto group will be a positive experience for Gordon while he's serving his season-long suspension from the NFL for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. He declined to say if Gordon will get paid. 

"'He will be busy,' said Sarchione. 'Everybody's excited about it.'

"He said Gordon, who could be eligible to apply for reinstatement after the season, will start working for him this weekend. 

"Browns coach Mike Pettine declined to comment on Gordon's new job, saying only that he 'wants what's best for Josh.' 

"A source told cleveland.com that Gordon's lawyers are still contemplating suing the NFL for what they feel is his wrongful suspension.

"ESPN's Josina Anderson was the first to report that Gordon will work for Sarchione." 

Pettine told ESPN's Pat McManamon on Aug. 29 he and the Browns respect the league's decision to uphold Gordon's one-year suspension:

"Mike Pettine reiterated that the Cleveland Browns did not agree with the timing on the decision to uphold the suspension of Josh Gordon, but he wasn't ready to call it unfair.

"'The rules are the rules,' Pettine said after the preseason win over the (Chicago) Bears. 'The league has a system that they set up. It was collectively bargained. We respect it.'

"Pettine admitted that the timing on Gordon's suspension for a positive marijuana test was 'not ideal' for the team. 

"'But we move forward,' he said. 'How it played out was not ideal circumstances for us, obviously, but that's behind us. Our full focus now is getting this team ready. You can't worry about guys you don't have.' 

"Andrew Hawkins will get the first chance to start opposite Miles Austin, though Hawkins will move inside the slot on third downs, with probably Nate Burleson playing outside in three-receiver sets. Pettine said the team will focus a committee approach to replacing Gordon.

"'I've said this all along, you don't replace a Josh Gordon, a top-five NFL receiver, with just one player,' Pettine said. 'I think you might have to get creative with what you do, and roll some different guys in there, maybe change some personnel groupings and get some different matchups. That's the challenge that we face.'"

 

The 23-year-old Gordon has caught for 2,451 yards and 14 touchdowns on 137 receptions in 30 regular-season games, per ESPN stats
