Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has not appeared in an National Football League game since 2014, but that could change before the season is over.

Gordon was suspended indefinitely after violating the NFL's substance abuse policy for the third time but applied for reinstatement in March before the league denied his petition in May. The Browns, meanwhile, might be looking to get something for Gordon's rights in advance of Tuesday's 4 p.m.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Gordon is scheduled to meet with Goodell on Wednesday. In 2013, the Baylor product earned All-Pro honors after posting an NFL-best 1,646 yards to go along with 87 receptions and 9 touchdowns.

Per Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, as of October 3, Gordon had yet to file the paperwork with the NFL to apply for reinstatement. The 26-year-old said that he recently completed a 90-day treatment program in Gainesville, Florida. But whether or not it will come with the Browns remains to be seen.
