Josh Gordon may have been with Manziel at trashed rental home

If the story of free-agent quarterback Johnny Manziel and the trashed rental home with, allegedly, cocaine and mushrooms present wasn’t already weird enough, it’s getting a little weirder.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that a man identifying himself as Josh Gordon was with Manziel at the rented home last week, according to the owner of the rental agency.

Nicholas Goodwin, whose quotes to the New York Post first launched what became the story of the say on Friday, shared this specific fact with Cabot.

If the person who identified himself as Josh Gordon is the same Josh Gordon who currently is on suspension from the NFL, being present at a party at a rented home that allegedly included drugs like cocaine and mushrooms isn’t the best way to ensure reinstatement to the NFL. Last week, Gordon’s initial petition to get back into the league was denied, and he can apply again on August 1.

Josh Gordon also reportedly picked up Manziel after he was involved in a one-car accident as the passenger last Saturday night and left the scene. ESPN at one point this week reported that Manziel and Gordon were living together in L.A., but PFT and others refuted that news.

  1. How is this weird? A young rich kid threw a party with some commonly found street drugs and beer and a house got trashed. It’s called spring break. You must not get out much.

  2. shocking…….not really…

    kind of like the Browns losing 10 plus or more 8 of the last 9 years, of course the other year was a stellar 9 losses.

    this org is a joke….move them….would anyone with an iq above 20 miss them..

    now granted, what would 60k morons with no life, no clue and no real job do 8 times a year on sundays..

    is big dawg taking over for jerad at subway, or is Danny Shelton

  3. We get it, Manziel and Gordon are both morons. They are out of the NFL so you can stop reporting on them.

  4. Who…Cares..

    They’re both clowns who care more about partying than being on the field. Manziel is in a downward spiral and Josh Gordon can’t seem to stay out of trouble. They’re both going to be completely out of the league sooner than later, so the faster we get to that point and all these stories are over with, the better.

  5. Manziel and Gordon are the Cheech and Chong of the NFL. The only difference is, Cheech and Chong were funny. These two clowns are just idiots and are heading for disaster.

  6. Can we get a dedicated Johnny page? I hate having to sift through the other stuff to get all the updates on my hero.

  7. Two guys given the keys to the kingdom and they throw it away. Zero sympathy whatsoever.

  8. Well if these two want to be so close, they can become ” Butt-Buddies”. It happens a lot to idiots like himself. Manziel has horrible leadership skills. He couldn’t even get these guys to clean up the drugs

  9. Manziel will eventually be the the homeless guy on the street. Funny how life goes. In a matter of a couple years, a person can make such bad decisions and spend the next number of decades trying to dig themselves out from that period of stupidity. Hes going to regret this. Gordon as well. Ahh to be young and invincible. Rebel Rebel….

  10. But what are spoilt rich punks supposed to do when they’ve puked on the red carpet so much they out-pace the clean-up staff and actually slip off of it? Where’s your sympathy!

  11. I used to think “Wow, bummer for the Dawg Pound that their team bolted town. Great fans!”. Then I was really happy when they got another team and bonus that they got to keep their name and colors. But apparently ownership/management don’t have clue. Alas, I’m a Niner fan so I can relate.
    *sigh*

  12. These guys have to be the 2 stupidest people I have ever see. They had the chance to make millions and millions of dollars playing a game that they love. But, nope they are dumb. They deserve everything they get now

  13. You couldn’t make this up if you tried . What’s next ? Haslem hosted the party and was there too ? LOL!!! Unbelievable. The Browns saga continues

  14. NFL needs to test Gordon by taking hair samples – I’m all for deregulation of recreational drugs, as it most likely would cause a huge drop in crime, but I’m not one percent for STUPID. Ask and ye shall receive.

  15. Manziel grew up a rich spoiled party slacker, he got his first big paycheck, did nothing, and now he’s back to slackerville

    what’s hard to understand?

  16. Manziel will soon be living out on the street with that bum that told the Browns to draft him. Speaking of that bum, why hasn’t a reporter tracked him down to find out if Cleveland prefers Goff or Wentz???

  17. I can only hope this is the last article I’ll ever see about “Johnny Football.”

    I guess being a college legend will have to suffice for he and the other over touted media darling from Florida.

  18. Has Gordon received notice when today’s’ random drug test will be – because there should be one.

    And despite all the fun we’ve had calling Manziel Johnny Football, Fool-Ball, Foosball, 8Ball, Highball – the time has come to consider dropping the Johnny for Junkie.

  19. The best part of the story was the rental co. guy saying Manziel was on the couch sleeping at noon and when he came back at 6pm he was still on the couch sleeping. Man, its hard to get any shut-eye when you’re blowing lines all night.

    I’m sure NFL teams are just lining up to sign him. Nice work Johnny… You are SOOO cool!

  20. @fernidad

    If all they were doing was mushrooms and coke like the story suggests, the blow is out of his system and you can only test for mushrooms in stool. I’m sure the nfl knows this and Gordon knows that. Nevertheless these guys are idiots, they could play 5 years and make enough to do this for decades if that’s their idea of daily fun.

  21. A team with a weak culture like the Browns had no business drafting Manziel in the first place. He needed structure, obviously.

    Not blaming the Browns for Manziel’s decisions, but am blaming the Browns for bad drafting.

  22. Birds of a feather. They both share the same agent so maybe someone there thought they could help each other. Wrong. They help each other do the complete opposite. No way is Gordon staying away from the fun and games, so it’s not farfetched they are hanging out. JM is at Coachella now. Gordon is not far behind.

  23. Looks like Johnny’s daddy now has two kids to support the rest their lives.

    Well, West Hollywood does have a certain reputation. Google it. The place does have faaaaaabulous hair stylists.

  25. As long as the league continues to give these guys 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th chances to “redeem” themselves, teams will keep knocking on their door. The NFLPA will continue to defend them and will appeal any decision that doesn’t go their way. The league bargained for this process in the CBA, so it will not go away. The NFL and the criminal justice system align with each other and are parallel in many ways. The players and the league deserve each other. Get used to it.

  26. Anyone remember the iconic scene at the end of the legendary movie “Dr Strangelove”? The one where Major/Pilot Slim Pickens gets trapped on that nuke. And yeee-haws it all the way to the mushroom cloud? Well that’s Johnny Football and Josh Gordon right now, riding themselves right out of the NFL. Manziel has rich parents to cushion their blow. What exactly is Gordon’s point & legacy in all of this. What a waste!

  27. Johnny Manziel gives the oh so perfect PFT commenters a reason to cast the first stone. Being perfect must be difficult.

  28. Today on As Cleveland Turns, wrecked hotel rooms and mushrooms. Be sure to tune into our 4/20 special, its going to be a blast.

  29. Waiting for all the stoners to whine about why it’s anybody’s business what these guys do in their personal lives? Oh only your dope is ok?

  30. mcmccii says: Mushrooms are good for the soul
    —————————————————

    Some truth to this… shrooms won’t let you believe you’re own BS. That’s one of the therapeutic aspects that actually does have them a subject of research.

    Hopefully Johnny Football experienced something that does cause him to think twice about his direction

    Yes, but in doing so they would be giving a reminder to Gordon (and others) that they are keeping an eye out that the terms of the suspension are being met. And that is not a bad thing.

  32. Sick and tired of another article about a spoiled piece of number 2 that is ruining the NFL football game . It is becoming common place to read more about the self absorbed ME’S than the game on Sunday. Let them blow their money, let no team with any brains sign any of these type od so called professional and clean up the game we all love. The ones with no respect or dedication let them sit at home and forgotten.
