Tyrann Mathieu: I understand what Josh Gordon is going through


The Cleveland Browns high from picking Johnny Manziel came crashing down when reports came out that star wide receiver Josh Gordon had failed another drug test and could miss the entire 2014 season.

It’s not the first time a young player has thrown his career off a cliff, but one player that has and was able to catch it before it was too late, is reaching out to offer guidance.

We don’t know if Josh Gordon will find God and right his life but he needs to find his a way to avoid having illegal substances in his life. After putting together an incredible season in 2013, everything Gordon has done has been overshadowed by his off-field problems and that has now come back to wipe out a great weekend for the Browns as a whole.

His career hangs in the balance now, but Tyrann Mathieu rebounded after having similar problems and there’s hope that Gordon can too.
