Josh Gordon Details Drug Abuse: Cocaine, Xanax, Methazine

Gordon, a former All-Pro receiver for the Cleveland Browns, made the admission in a mini documentary on www.uninterupted.com, as first reported by TMZ.

"I've used alcohol on many, many occasions, Xanax on many occasions, cocaine several occasions, marijuana most of my life, codeine, cough syrup, methazine is very prevalent where I'm from", said Gordon, whose latest petition for reinstatement was denied by the National Football League in May. But now, in a short documentary for LeBron James' Uninterrupted digital video company, Gordon finally is admitting to his substance-abuse problems in his attempt to return to the field. "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 know firsthand. I know firsthand because a loved one of mine has gone through substance abuse and we had to make sure that we got 'em professional help because it's a real situation".

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.

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

"He showed me how to drink them, showed me how to take them". He was conditionally reinstated past year and allowed to be in training camp and play preseason games.

The following year, Gordon was suspended indefinitely by then-coach Art Briles after Gordon failed a drug test.

Gordon detailed how his college coaches at Baylor enabled his drug use. "If given the opportunity, I believe I can prove my worth".

"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". He last played for Cleveland in 2014 and has sat out the past two seasons. The teammate was kicked off the team, while Gordon was suspended.

"I applaud Josh for what he's doing", James said.

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