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.
Cleveland.com reported that Gordon now lives in Gainesville with his business manager Michael Johnson, and works out with former Olympics sprinter Tim Montgomery.
Here's hoping this video production is not just a piece of public relations rehab and that Gordon truly is making the choices and decisions he needs to make for a better life with or without football.
It has been known that Gordon had multiple issues with alcohol and marijuana use, but he also acknowledged using much heavier drugs.
"My first thought was: 'This is a publicity stunt". I definitely wasn't listening, I definitely wasn't paying attention. "I mean, I've been enabled by coaches, teachers, professors; everybody pretty much gave me a second chance because of my ability".
Former Baylor WR Josh Gordon says Baylor's coaching staff would give him instructions on how to pass drug tests.
In three National Football League seasons, Gordon has 161 catches for 2,754 yards with 14 touchdowns.
While many assume the Josh Gordon saga is finished in Cleveland, the Browns wide receiver is attempting to craft a comeback.
"Easy 2 judge some 1 over wrong doings but u never know what they're going thru!" If they do call you in, here goes these bottles of detox'.
"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", he said. The Browns' 2012 second-round supplemental draft pick has been suspended four times for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Gordon had 43 catches for 721 yards 7 TDs over two seasons with the Bears.
"I got suspended for the entire year", Gordon said, "and after that it kind of all came in from all angles, different fans, everybody kind of was like 'Oh, you're a piece of s--, you're a drug addict, you're a junkie, whatever, you're alcoholic'".
"And then just something clicked in my head at that point, it's like 'man, you did it again".
