Josh Gordon Baylor Coach Helped Me Cheat Drug Tests

Josh Gordon Baylor Coach Helped Me Cheat Drug Tests

He has now missed 43 of his last 48 games and has remained under league suspension dating back to 2015 due to repeated violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy. "That was my first experience with getting over on the system and the authority not really being serious because it was being guided by someone who was employed by the university". He performed well, but was suspended indefinitely due to a failed drug test.

"I've used alcohol on many, many occasions, Xanax on many occasions, cocaine several occasions, marijuana most of my life, codeine, cough syrup, methazine is very prevalent where I'm from", Gordon admitted. Gordon said in the documentary, "You're willing to throw away everything you ever worked hard for, everything you ever had out of life".

In May, Gordon's application for reinstatement was denied and he has yet to re-apply. "I've been enabled by coaches, teachers, professors, everybody, pretty much, gave me a second chance because of my ability". Through his first two seasons in the league, Gordon was a high-magnitude quake, tearing down defenses on his way to become a first-team All-Pro and was the first receiver to accumulate 200 yards receiving in back-to-back games.

Gordon struggled with drug use during his time in college, but the Browns used a supplemental draft pick to get Gordon.

Gordon revealed he hit rock bottom one night while walking the streets of Gainesville, Florida looking for a drugs. "I'm able to give this message and this opportunity for you to learn from my mistakes for me to tell them my story". I had a bunch of good gourmet meals and took little breaks and then got right back to work. He was suspended for the entire 2015 season for similar violations.

"The sixth game, end of the season, stayed out late but the thing is we had to be up in the morning for like a 7:30 team meeting". He was kicked off the team while Gordon was suspended.

Following the video's release, James tweeted his support of Gordon in his road to recovery and following the Cavs' 108-94 loss to the Bulls in a preseason game James explained why he felt the need to support an athlete that he has no relationship with.

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

Gordon has grown to respect National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell despite all the suspensions.
