NEW YORK - The Cleveland Browns continued to hog the spotlight on Day 2 of the NFL Draft.

Not the way they did on Thursday, but the way the hapless franchise has done since coming back to life in 1999. With bad news and head-scratching decisions.

After making three trades during Round 1 the night before at Radio City Music Hall, to snare star quarterback Johnny Manziel and the best cornerback, Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert, the Browns might have reverted to being those Browns.

A couple of hours before Round 2 began Friday night, Twitter blew up with the news that Cleveland's star wide receiver Josh Gordon -- already deep in the NFL's drug-problem dog house -- tested positive again for drugs.

He faces a year's suspension.

By NFL rule Gordon can appeal, and surely will to seek a reduction.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that the Browns have known for two weeks. Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, though, tweeted that the Browns didn't know Gordon faced a full-season suspension until today.
