Gordon, who attended Baylor from 2009-2011, admitted to using codeine, marijuana, Xanax, and cocaine. "That was my first experience with getting over on the system and the authority not really being serious because it was being guided by someone who was employed by the university". He said he failed "because I was getting high".
"I've been enabled by coaches, teachers, professors, everybody, pretty much, gave me a second chance because of my ability". Gordon said in the documentary, "You're willing to throw away everything you ever worked hard for, everything you ever had out of life". According to Cabot, he will soon be applying for reinstatement, at which point National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell will rule on his National Football League future.
Gordon explained that by saying at the time his mindset was, "I'm out of detox drinks". Gordon claimed that he failed the drug test at Baylor after running out of bottles of detox issued by the coach.
Numerous failed drug tests in the NFL and opportunities by the Browns to come back with a Pro Bowl season and year as the NFL's receiving yards leader sprinkled in all culminated in essentially a ban from the league for Gordon. Through his first two seasons in the league, Gordon was a high-magnitude natural disaster, tearing down defenses on his way to become a first-team All-Pro and was the first receiver to accumulate 200 yards receiving in back-to-back games.More news: Serena Williams to make comeback at Australian Open
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'". "Not enough time, got to take a drug test, failed the drug test". "As such, we decline to comment further". I had a bunch of good gourmet meals and took a little break and then got right back to work.
Gordon would eventually be suspended indefinitely and ended up leaving the team.
"I got suspended for the entire year", Gordon said, "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--, you're a drug addict, you're a junkie, whatever, you're alcoholic'".
"And then just something clicked in my head at that point, it's like 'man, you did it again".
