Goodell offered his stance on Thursday when asked about Gordon at a fan forum in Cleveland.
"(It's) not under active consideration to my knowledge, at least it hasn't gotten to my desk yet," Goodell said, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
The league denied Gordon's reinstatement petition on May 11, two months after the embattled 26-year-old wideout filed papers to have his indefinite suspension lifted.
Goodell reinstated Gordon on a conditional basis last season but the Pro Bowl receiver checked into the rehab facility in September and put his career on hold. Gordon spent 30 days in a New Hampshire facility.
Browns head coach Hue Jackson said then that Gordon's tenure was over in Cleveland and wished him well even though the team still holds his rights for at least one more season. Gordon was scheduled to rejoin the team at practice last Oct. 3 and play Oct. 9 against the New England Patriots before deciding to check into the rehab facility.
The NFL has suspended Gordon four times for violating its substance-abuse policy.
Gordon has been suspended for 43 of his last 48 games and hasn't played in an NFL game since Dec. 21, 2014.
The 6-foot-3, 225-pound Gordon had 87 catches for a league-leading 1,646 yards in 2013, his second year in the league.
