Shortly after the Browns selected him with a second-round pick in the supplemental draft, receiver Josh Gordon claimed he hadn’t failed a drug test during his brief stint at Utah. Gordon now admits he was lying when he said that.
“Yeah, there was a failed test,” Gordon told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
The failed drug test at Utah was the third of his college career. He previously had two at Baylor before getting kicked out of school there. He now says his drug use is behind him.
“Coming out here, I have a new experience, a new foundation to get started and I don’t really plan on looking back in the past anymore. I only look toward my future,” Gordon said. “I’m definitely a changed person. The things that happened were such a long time ago and the fact that there’s this many people in such a prestigious organization like this, putting their jobs and their necks out on the line for a guy like me, it says a lot about them and their character.”
And it doesn’t say a lot about Gordon’s character that he couldn’t be honest about his drug use.
