Josh Gordon comes clean on his dirty time at Baylor

Josh Gordon comes clean on his dirty time at Baylor

In a profile with Sports Illustrated released on Tuesday, Gordon opens up about his history with substance abuse, which he says dates back to his childhood in Houston and has resulted in him being suspended for the better part of the past four National Football League seasons. Gordon, who has not appeared in a regular season game since the 2014 campaign, said he has recently undergone treatment for his issues in Gainesville, Fla. and claims to finally be clean. Previously, Gordon told em GQ /em that he used to get drunk or high before every game.

Josh Gordon, in his most revealing confession yet, told Sports Illustrated he carried a gun and stole cars and was involved in counterfeiting while in high school and that he made about $10,000 a month selling marijuana while in college at Baylor.

The Houston native told SI he would get a weekly shipment of weed through the USA mail system - sealed in Mylar, soaked in kerosene and stashed among coffee beans to mask the smell - and then Gordon would drive to Dallas, San Antonio and Austin to sell it. It's also important to note that Gordon says in the profile - which is worth a read - things that contradict what he told GQ earlier in the year about how he would drink or do drugs before "probably every game of my career." . Gordon said he was bringing in about $10,000 a month in profits.

While at Baylor, Gordon was arrested for possession in 2010 and was indefinitely suspended by the school a year later after failing a drug test. On Tuesday, Sports Illustrated published its story, which was written by Ben Baskin. His first time trying cocaine was in 2011, when Gordon, who had transferred to Utah, was sitting out a year. Later, the suspension was reduced to 10 games. "Because, first off, we are not getting paid for this". But that is not what Gordon told GQ in an interview done November 1 not long before meeting with Goodell on the same day.
