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.

Gordon did tell Baskin about an epiphany he had over the summer that has changed his perspective on things. As a sophomore at Lamar High he found himself alone and vulnerable and, he says, joined the Six Deuce Harvard Park Brim Bloods, an offshoot of the South Central L.A. gang.

The interview for the Sports Illustrated story was done in Gainesville, Fla., in an apartment belonging to Gordon's manager, Michael Johnson, about three weeks before Gordon was reinstated, with Johnson present.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon had a troubled history using drugs and alcohol, but in a new interview with Sports Illustrated, the Baylor product now alleges that he made an estimated $10,000 per month selling marijuana as a college student in Waco.

Again, the entire story is worth a full read.

Gordon played for the Bears between 2009 and 2011. On Tuesday, the Browns publicly stated that Gordon will likely be activated on Friday for the team's game against the Chargers in Los Angeles on Sunday. He was reinstated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on November 1 after missing all of 2015 and 2016 and now 11 games in 2017 for violating NFL substance abuse policies.

"I didn't plan on living past 18", Gordon said. He was suspended as a sophomore in 2010 when police found Gordon and a teammate in a vehicle with marijuana inside. "Because, first off, we are not getting paid for this". He led the league with 1,646 receiving yards and 117.6 yards per game in 14 outings during the 2014 season. That is consistent with what he would tell the Cleveland media when he was reinstated after a 10-game suspension in 2014. He was reinstated for the 2017 season November 1. Well, it feels as good as coming back to the Browns can possibly feel.
