What is next for Josh Gordon?
In football no one knows, but continuing on with his life appears to be his priority. He was released from a rehab facility in New Hampshire according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The 30 days he spent there are, reportedly, the most intensive treatment that he has gone through. A source told Schefter that Gordon is doing “a lot better.”
Gordon was eligible to return to the field on Oct. 9. from a suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. However, he chose to enter himself into a rehab facility.
He is still suspended indefinitely from the NFL, and has to be reinstated by the commissioner.
Browns head coach Hue Jackson said to the media after Gordon checked himself into rehab that Browns are “moving on” from their troubled wide receiver.
Schefter’s sources told him that Browns are actively trying to trade Gordon, but the league might not allow it before Tuesday’s trade deadline.
There was a time when Gordon was considered the best wide receiver in the NFL. The talent could still be there, and if the Browns part ways with him, somebody will give him another chance.
More importantly for Gordon though, hopefully this is the last news that will ever be reported about trouble with drugs and alcohol.
