Josh Gordon says Baylor coaches helped him pass drug tests

Josh Gordon says Baylor coaches helped him pass drug tests

Gordon, who attended Baylor from 2009-2011, admitted to using codeine, marijuana, Xanax, and cocaine. But now, in a short documentary for LeBron James' Uninterrupted digital video company, Gordon finally is admitting to his substance-abuse problems in his attempt to return to the field. "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". I had the desire to get help, invest myself 100 percent into whatever was going to help save my life.

Gordon truly does sound remorseful and intent on getting his life back on track, but this is more startling news about Baylor following other recent scandals.

Gordon is now eligible to re-apply for reinstatement in the NFL, but first he wants to continue focusing on himself before giving football another go. "I've been enabled by coaches, teachers, professors, everybody pretty much gave me a second chance just because of my ability".

Gordon struggled with drug use during his time in college, but the Browns used a supplemental draft pick to get Gordon. He has been suspended indefinitely since previous year and hasn't played in a game since 2014.

"He showed me how to drink them, showed me how to take them". Gordon has also been humbled by the rehab stints, which have helped him grow. "If given the opportunity, I believe I can prove my worth". But the National Football League has declined to comment on his status. I had a bunch of good gourmet meals and took a little break and then got right back to work.

He was suspended 10 games in 2014 by the league, and for the season finale by the team for missing a morning walk-through before the season finale.

Gordon had 43 catches for 721 yards 7 TDs over two seasons with the Bears.

Gordon then was suspended for all of 2015 for what he originally said was drinking alcohol while flying to Las Vegas with teammates.

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.

"So at that point, I was like, 'If you all want me to be this guy so bad, that's just what I'm going to be'".
