Josh Gordon's fate for 2014 has finally been decided.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that the NFL has suspended the Cleveland Browns wide receiver for one season on Wednesday for violating the league's substance abuse policy, according to a source.

Last year's league-leading wideout has waited for word on his future since the second day of May's draft, when we first learned that Gordon faced a potentially lengthy suspension for a positive drug test.

In an effort to fight his punishment, Gordon's camp participated in a marathon appeal session earlier this month in front of arbitrator Harold Henderson.
