Josh Gordon Just Dropped Some Major Bombshells About His Drug Use, Rehab, Partying With Manziel
Gordon, who hasn’t played in the NFL since December of 2014, was once one of the rising stars in the league. That was before numerous on and off-the-field issues got him suspended for 43 of his last 48 games with the Cleveland Browns.
Still only 26-years-old, and now suspended indefinitely by the NFL, Gordon recently completed his fourth known stay in rehab and decided it was time to come clean about his past transgressions. And there are a lot of them.

“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 admit. “It’s what I grew up using.”
So much for Gordon just being a victim of an anti-marijuana agenda.
After being suspended for two games in 2013 for testing positive for codeine, Gordon was suspended again in 2014 for a DUI, after which he decided to check into rehab. Problem is, he didn’t take it seriously.
“My first thought was, ‘this is a publicity stunt'” he told The Uninterrupted. “‘This is just going to help the media deal with me. It’s going to help the fans be able to deal with it. I don’t know what they’re so worked up for anyway.’ I definitely wasn’t listening. I definitely wasn’t paying attention. ‘Okay, it’s a business move. Alright, cool let’s do it.’ I was there for like 14-15 days, it was a joke. It was pretty much a vacation. I had a bunch of good gourmet meals and took a little break and then got right back to work. And then led the league in receiving yards.”
