Josh Gordon explains how Baylor coaches helped him pass drug tests

Revealing he was scared for his life amid another drug relapse, suspended Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon is making his case to be reinstated by the NFL.

Former Baylor football player Josh Gordon says a coach helped him cheat a drug test while playing for the Bears.

Easy 2 judge some 1 over wrong doings but u never know what they're going thru! This is what they are going to do. Knowing he would be tested by the NCAA's drug compliance officers, his coach gave Gordon what he called "bottles of detox" and demonstrated how to consume them.

"That was my first experience with getting over on the system and that authority not really being taken seriously, because it was kind of being guided by somebody that's employed by the same university", says Gordon in the film.

Gordon struggled with drug use during his time in college, but the Browns used a supplemental draft pick to get Gordon.

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. Instead of blaming the coach, Gordon blamed himself.

The Spanish government tried to stop voting and hundreds of people were hurt in scuffles with police at polling stations. If Carles Puigdemont confirms by Monday that he has, he will be given a further three days to withdraw the declaration.

Gordon's first suspension, for the first two games of the 2013 season, was levied after he failed a drug test for codeine, which he said was an ingredient in the cough syrup that was prescribed by a doctor. He left the team after that incident.

Josh Gordon is trying to overcome his past drug addiction to make it back to the NFL.

At the time, one reported incident of marijuana use would result in a suspension for a semester, and a second violation could result in expulsion. "If given the opportunity, I believe I can prove my worth".

While the NCAA does not require schools to conduct drug tests of athletes, it does require member institutions to follow their school's written policies in such matters. He has been suspended indefinitely since a year ago and hasn't played in a game since 2014.

An NFL spokesman said the league had no comment on Gordon's status.

"He showed me how to drink them, showed me how to take them". The league granted him conditional reinstatement in July 2016, but Gordon elected to leave the team and check into a rehab facility. I had the desire to get help, invest myself 100% into whatever was going to help save my life.
