Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has finally admitted to himself that he has a problem and has entered an in-patient rehab center. The Browns took to their Twitter account to announce the shocking move yesterday afternoon.
The 25-year-old NFL player was just a few days from coming back from a one-year and four-game suspension for testing positive for alcohol.
Yes, he was suspended for enjoying one of the many alcohol beverages that the NFL advertises in their commercials and serve all around their stadiums.
But it is a bit deeper than that as the man who recorded an NFL best 1,646 yard season in just 14 games during the 2013 season was suspended for 10 games after testing positive for marijuana the following year (2014). That in turn led to the full year suspension for alcohol consumption and another four games this season.
Looking to get control over his demons the young gifted player has decided to look for help and get his life back on track before he hits his prime.
We commend the man for trying to get a grip on his problem. Now if only Johnny Manziel would follow in the footsteps of his former teammate.
