Josh Gordon talks trash about Bengals on Twitter

Suspension, schmuspension. Josh Gordon hasn’t let it stop him from smack-talking his team’s arch nemesis.

On Tuesday, the Browns’ still-banned receiver took to Twitter to congratulate friend and former Browns teammate Greg Little, who signed with the Bengals.

And by “congratulate” I mean “taunt.”

Gordon, suspended by the NFL for ten games, won’t be in uniform on Nov. 6, the first meeting of the season between the teams — a Thursday night contest. He will, however, be eligible to play in the Battle of Ohio on Dec. 14.

By then, the Browns (3-2) and Bengals (3-1-1) may be jockeying for playoff positioning and, possibly, the AFC North crown. Gordon’s bulletin-board material — and return to action — adds more intrigue to a rivalry that’s never short on storylines.
