Josh Gordon Everything Thread


Recommended Posts

From Rapaport:

On Josh Gordon: He was late today to the facility, source said. In addition, he was fine at Friday’s practice, then injured his hamstring. The question of how is part of the reason they released him. My understanding is it’s an overall trust issue for a player on thin ice.

so....that’s it?  Ugh.  Well congrats Pats fans on getting Gordon for free

Wonder if he really did fail a drug test or is about to and Browns know it.

Gotta think his career is over at this point.

Wait. So he fails about a million drug tests and the Browns are all "No worries, brah."

Then he gets hurt and it's "Can't be having any of that."

Failed drug test seems like the obvious reason but if it really about him getting hurt out of the complex, pickup basketball or something equally silly then there are.no words to describe the Browns organization.

Sounds from this source as if the Browns suspected that he was high today.

I, for one, am shocked.  This is kind of like a lightning bolt.  There were NO warning signs for this to have happened.  None.  #dumbfounded

Updated: #Browns Gordon showed up late to the facility on Saturday morning and was 'not himself.' Red flag for possible substance use was the concern of some in the org, sources tell clevelanddotcom

 

He was high.

this is terrible for Josh. I find this thread to be comical at how long its lasted and now it ends like this, but that's besides the point with regards to Josh and his health.

Erratic behavior doesn't mean failed drug test. Other sites say according to league sources there was no failed drug test, so...I don't know. Who knows. Was really pulling for him. I hope he was upset at something unrelated and he gets to another team with a strong mentoring system in place.

Plenty of people pulling for Josh as a person, not just an athlete. Crying as I type this, knowing it all too well.
