Former Baylor WR Josh Gordon admits school helped him cheat drug tests

Josh Gordon was a talented receiver during his time at Baylor and early in his career with the Cleveland Browns. But the former standout certainly has had his share of trouble.

Gordon is currently suspended for multiple violations of the NFL’s substance abuse policy. He has been suspended indefinitely since last year and hasn’t played in a game since 2014.

On Tuesday, Gordon detailed his troubled past — as well as his desire to own up to his mistakes and attempt a return to football — in an interview with UNINTERRUPTED. However, Gordon also revealed that while at Baylor, the school would help him cheat drug tests.

“Not too long after I got arrested for possession of marijuana at Baylor, one of my coaches came by saying, ‘You are going to get drug tested by the compliance office. This is how it’s going to work, this is what they are going to do. If they do call you in, here goes these bottles of detox,'” Gordon said in the interview. “He showed me how to drink them, showed me how to take them. 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.”

Gordon’s marijuana incident occurred during his sophomore season at Baylor in 2010. He and a teammate were found in a car containing marijuana. The teammate was kicked off the team, while Gordon was suspended.
