Browns receiver Josh Gordon claims he sold 'pounds' of weed at Baylor

Browns receiver Josh Gordon claims he sold 'pounds' of weed at Baylor

SI explains, "Gordon's history of drug and alcohol abuse is well-documented".

Former Baylor receiver Josh Gordon has told Sports Illustrated he made as much as $10,000 a month selling marijuana during his BU career.

The pot was vacuum-sealed and wrapped in Mylar, sprayed with kerosene and covered in coffee beans to mask the smell, according to the article.

Gordon would sell the marijuana in Dallas, Austin and San Antonio. As a sophomore at Lamar High he found himself alone and vulnerable and, he says, joined the Six Deuce Harvard Park Brim Bloods, an offshoot of the South Central L.A. gang.

When he spoke with the media, Browns head coach Hue Jackson said that he had "big plans" for Gordon, but that he would only play him "as much as he could handle." "I used to make a ritual of it before every game", he told GQ's Clay Skipper.

Gordon stole cars in high school by shattering a window or manipulating the locking mechanism, according to the story. "It was a mentorship", Gordon says.

As he has worked his way back into a position to return to the Browns, Gordon has agreed to multiple interviews to tell his story - from his downfall to his comeback. On Tuesday, Sports Illustrated published its story, which was written by Ben Baskin. "Because, first off, we are not getting paid for this". He returned to Houston from Waco once a month for drug tests and passed, he says, because no one ever flagged his diluted samples. "He then transferred to Utah, where he sat out in 2011 before leaving for the NFL's 2012 supplemental draft".

He was arrested in July 2014 for driving while impaired.

Josh Gordon was one of the most productive wide receivers in the National Football League from 2012 to 2014. Later, the suspension was reduced to 10 games.

He was conditionally reinstated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell earlier this month after being suspended numerous times for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
