Thursday September 4th, 2014

Suspended Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon has accepted a job at an Ohio car dealership, ESPN's Josina Anderson reports.

Gordon, who is suspended for the entire 2014 season following a third positive test for marijuana, will be the goodwill ambassador for the Sarchione Auto Group in Randolph, Ohio.

Browns not planning 'quick hook' for Brian Hoyer

More from Anderson:

He will be working in all aspects of their car business including as an on-floor salesman. Gordon will also be heading all of their local community efforts, including with the Wounded Warriors Project. He starts this weekend.

Gordon reportedly wanted to play in the Canadian Football League while he serves his suspension, but the CFL does not allow suspended NFL players to sign with teams.

The Browns open the regular season on Sunday at the Pittsburgh Steelers.
