Browns receiver Josh Gordon claims he sold 'pounds' of weed at Baylor

Browns receiver Josh Gordon claims he sold 'pounds' of weed at Baylor

The talented wideout struggled with substance abuse problems at Baylor, where he was indefinitely suspended by head coach Art Briles for a second failed drug test in July of 2011.

As far as his current career, Gordon plans to suit up in a regular-season National Football League game for the first time since December 21, 2014 when the Cleveland Browns take on the Los Angeles Chargers. He'd go every morning to a tattoo parlor and pick up a small.38 special that he put in his pocket or backpack, then he'd return it at the end of the school day.

Recently reinstated Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon said he was making a lot of money selling drugs during his time at Baylor.

He told the magazine that when he was a sophomore, he received as much as six pounds of vacuum-sealed, Mylar-wrapped pot in the mail every month. It's also important to note that Gordon says in the profile - which is worth a read - things that contradict what he told GQ earlier in the year about how he would drink or do drugs before "probably every game of my career." . Gordon sold the marijuana in Dallas, Austin and San Antonio and made a profit of $10,000 a month.

From 2012-14, Josh Gordon was one of the NFL's most dominant wide receivers, compiling 2,754 yards with 14 touchdown receptions in just 35 games.

When he spoke with the media, Browns head coach Hue Jackson said that he had "big plans" for Gordon, but that he would only play him "as much as he could handle." "I can't give you his whole life story when you're not even guaranteeing me the cover [of Sports Illustrated]. Because, first off, we are not getting paid for this". He was suspended in 2010 when he was found asleep in a Taco Bell drive-thru with a teammate. Later, the suspension was reduced to 10 games. But that is not what Gordon told GQ in an interview done November 1 not long before meeting with Goodell on the same day.
