The report from NFL Network that Patriots receiver Josh Gordon committed multiple violations of the substance-abuse policy before triggering his latest suspension raises concerns beyond whether the NFL violated its own confidentiality provision.The fact that Gordon wasn’t suspended immediately after his first violation following reinstatement underscores the reality that the NFL is exercising discretion regarding reinstated players that the letter of the policy doesn’t permit. As one league source recently explained it to PFT , this creates competitive concerns regarding the manner in which discretion is being exercised as to reinstated players.Players who are reinstated after being suspended for more than one year revert to Stage 3 of the program, which technically means that they are one positive test away from another indefinite suspension of at least a year. While the league helps the players (and itself) by allowing talented players to continue to play, the decision to blur otherwise bright-line rules invites questions regarding whether discretion is being fairly and consistently applied.This year, three different players who had been suspended for at least a year reportedly encountered new problems under the policy. Raiders receiver Martavis Bryant eventually was suspended again, as was Gordon. Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory, who reportedly was facing further discipline post-reinstatement in September, continues to play.Other teams are wondering why Bryant and Gordon are gone , but Gregory isn’t. And because there’s (selective) confidentiality and limited transparency in these cases, there’s no way to compare circumstances and decide whether the NFL has done Gregory and, in turn, the Cowboys a favor.Former Patriots linebacker Harvey Langi finds a new home, signs with Jets’ practice squad As a result of second-year man Harvey Langi missing considerable practice time over the course of the summer, the New England Patriots opted to release him during September’s roster cutdowns. While there were rumors of him joining the team’s practice squad, he was never signed and remained on the open market – until yesterday: according to the NFL’s transactions wire , the New York Jets have signed the 26-year old to their practice squad.Langi originally joined the Patriots in 2017. After he went unselected during the draft, the Patriots signed him to a free agency contract. Over his first NFL offseason, Langi quickly established himself as a player worth keeping in the fold: following a strong training camp and preseason, the Brigham Young product made New England’s 53-man roster and started his rookie year as a developmental depth option at linebacker.However, his season came to a quick end on October 13: Langi and his wife, Cassidy, were waiting in their car at a red stoplight when they were rear-ended by a driver going 50 mph. The couple survived the crash but not without suffering serious injuries. Cassidy sustained fractures to both her hips as well as broken ribs , Harvey injured both his neck and his head – injuries that would keep him off the football field for the rest of the season.Seven months removed from the near-fatal car crash, Langi was back on the Patriots’ practice fields during organized team activities and minicamp – one of the feel-good stories of the year. Practicing without any visible physical limitations, the second-year defender was in a position to fight for a roster spot at the linebacker position. However, his bad luck returned: he suffered an internal laceration and was held out for the entire preseason – which ultimately led to his release.Langi is not the first ex-Patriot dealing with injuries to join the Jets: in May, the team also claimed former third-round draft pick Antonio Garcia on waivers. Garcia missed all of his 2017 rookie season due to blood clots in his lungs and was let go by the Patriots after the team acquired Isaiah Wynn and Trent Brown over draft weekend. However, the Troy product did not turn his career around in New York and was released again in late August.
