Josh Gordon looking for redemption after history of drug abuse

Former Cleveland Browns and Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon said in an extended video Tuesday that he's been "enabled" most of his life, given multiple chances for his substance-related issues because of his ability.

The Browns do still hold his rights. Gordon was later suspended indefinitely by Briles in July 2011 after failing a second drug test. Gordon will appear in a mini-documentary on Uninterrupted, where Cleveland.com reports he'll be opening up about just how extensive his drug addiction was.

Gordon did in fact have the most receiving yards in the 2013 season with 1,646, but has only played in five games since.

"I think it might be therapeutic for me to talk about it", Gordon said. In 2010, during his sophomore season, police found Gordon and a teammate in a vehicle with marijuana inside.

Former Baylor football player Josh Gordon says a coach helped him cheat a drug test while playing for the Bears.

Gordon then explained that he happened to be out of detox when he was faced with another drug test, but he refused to blame the coach for the failed test.

"I've been enabled most of my life", Gordon noted. This is how it's going to work. Knowing he would be tested by the NCAA's drug compliance officers, his coach gave Gordon what he called "bottles of detox" and demonstrated how to consume them.

In May, Gordon's application for reinstatement was denied and he has yet to re-apply.

"I got suspended for the entire year and after that it kind of all came in from all angles, different fans, everybody kind of was like, 'Oh, you're a piece of s-t, you're a drug addict, you're a junkie, whatever, you're alcoholic".

"And then just something clicked in my head at that point, it's like 'man, you did it again".

"That was my first experience with getting over on the system and that authority not really being taken seriously, because it was kind of being guided by somebody that's employed by the same university", says Gordon in the film. You're willing to throw away everything you ever worked hard for, everything you ever had out of life. "I know firsthand. I know firsthand because a loved one of mine has gone through substance abuse and we had to make sure that we got 'em professional help because it's a real situation".
