  • Josh Gordon Says Baylor Football Coach Helped Him Cheat Drug Test

"I have zero relationship with Josh Gordon, but I have a lot of knowledge about substance abuse", James said late Tuesday night following the Cavaliers' fourth preseason game. Gordon admitted to using several drugs including Xanax, cocaine, and codeine in addition to marijuana and admitted his first trip to rehab in 2014 was just a "publicity stunt".

Gordon is now suspended for multiple violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy. "That was my first experience with, like, getting over on the system and the authority not really being serious because it was kind of being guided by someone who was employed by the university". I had the desire to get help, invest myself 100% into whatever was going to help save my life.

In this revealing piece with Uninterrupted, Gordon reveals many shocking details about his use of drugs off the field, how it was covered up in college, and what he's now doing in hopes of getting his life back on track.

An NFL spokesman said the league had no comment on Gordon's status. "I mean, I've been enabled by coaches, teachers, professors; everybody pretty much gave me a second chance because of my ability".

One regent, however, told the "Violated" authors that the lack of random tests instead fostered a permissive attitude and "the underlying message to them is, 'Hey, the rules don't apply to you'".

Gordon went into detail about his time at Baylor and says a coach helped him beat drug tests.

Gordon played at Baylor in 2009 and 2010 before being indefinitely suspended by coach Art Briles for a second failed drug test in July 2011.

Gordon discussed methods he used to beat the drug testing system in college, said he failed tests in the National Football League because he was an addict and described walking the streets of Gainesville, Florida, late at night looking for a drug dealer or for anyone who might have drugs. I had a bunch of gourmet meals and took a little break.

"I got suspended for the entire year 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-t, you're a drug addict, you're a junkie, whatever, you're alcoholic". The teammate was kicked off the team, while Gordon was suspended.

"And then just something click in my head at that point, it's like 'man, you did it again".
