Leadoff with Lee 2.18.15

By @cleeverizon

- NFLPA filed non-injury grievance versus the Browns for the one game suspension  imposed on Josh Gordon for missing a team meeting at end of year. The suspension could delay his free agency,which is set to began after the 2015 season which he is suspended for failing a post 2014 season alcohol test. Now Josh Gordon argues in his that Gordon's grievance versus the Browns states he was suspended for being late for meetings for the 5th or 6th time, but was never disciplined or told about other times previous.

- The Browns have officially hired Kevin O’Connell to become quarterbacks coach. Pettine also announced the hiring of senior offensive assistant Kurt Roper. O'Connell has been in California preparing Marcus Mariota, Bryce Petty and Jameis Winston (indirectly) for the 2015 scouting combine and their Pro Days.

- It was announced to Browns Backers Presidents yesterday that the logo will change. It has nothing to do with the helmets as per the agreement with Haslam and Lerner prior to the sale of the team. New merchandise including the Browns Elf are in the plans. I would assume according to the information that I have received from "SOURCES" that the middle of the field will replaced by the Elf. And will replace the orange helmet as the primary logo.

- Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw was cited in Eaton, Ohio for possession of marijuana. He was pulled over on I-70 for following to closely behind another vehicle. Bradshaw did not appear in Tuesday and pleaded not guilty through his attorney in a Preble County court.

-Seton Hall suspended Sterling Gibbs for two games following what seems to me as a intentional hit Monday night on Ryan Arcidiacono. Gibbs will miss the games against St. John's and Creighton. It's not clear if the NCAA will look to impose an additional suspension.

- Only 47 days left until MLB opening day and the Yankees are making more news. After a year long ban from baseball Alex Rodrigeuz apologized in a handwritten note to the Yankees,fans and media yesterday. This was all after Anthony Bosch and former owner of the South Florida clinic that supplied performance-enhancing substances to Major League Baseball players and other athletes was sentenced to four years in federal prison plus three years supervised probation upon his release.
