Josh Gordon Opens Up About Substance Abuse Problems and Football

Josh Gordon may or may not make a return to the NFL one day. He's yet to seek reinstatement and would likely face a suspension after doing so. But as he continues rehabilitation for substance abuse problems, he opened up in a 13-minute mini-documentary from Uninterrupted, candidly discussing those problems, what led to his issues with the Browns in 2014, and the enabling culture of football that has exacerbated his problems in many ways.
