'Clean and sober' Gordon getting fresh start with Browns

'Clean and sober' Gordon getting fresh start with Browns”

Gordon went through a similar ordeal when he was conditionally reinstated two summers ago before entering an inpatient rehabilitation facility in September 2016.

National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell notified Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon on Wednesday that he will be reinstated on a conditional basis.

After telling reporters that his goal is to be the best ever, Gordon explained that he's always had that aspiration.

Four years later, he's played in just five games while being suspended several times for substance abuse violations.

But following a almost three-year absence from the field and a recent rehab stay of more than 100 days, Gordon feels he's finally on the right path. Per the Browns, the 26-year-old can only return to practice as early as November 20 and can return to the active roster only as early as November 27. Gordon revealed in an interview for GQ that he never played a game sober, and drank or used drugs before every start.

The receiver believes that should be plenty of time to show he can be one of the game's most dominant yet again.

"Now I know I have the support in place outside and inside the building and my life is just in a conducive space of where I need to be for me psychologically, physically, it's all coming together so right now in this point and time in my life I'm feeling well. I think the ceiling is very high".
