Miss Gordons Mistake
James Gordon (character)
In that letter, Gordon accepted responsibility for his actions to some degree, but he was defiant at the same time. What I do know is the following: I am not a drug addict; I am not an alcoholic; I am not someone who deserves to be dissected and analyzed like some tragic example of everything that can possibly go wrong for a professional athlete.
I am not going to die on account of the troubled state you wrongly believe my life to be in. I am a human being, with feelings and emotions and scars and flaws, just like anyone else. Gordon also explained the failed test for alcohol by chalking it up to a couple casual drinks, per Pro Football on ESPN:.

Perhaps Gordon isn't an addict, but that simply isn't the point. Having a drink or smoking marijuana on occasion may not be terrible things in a vacuum; however, they are significant due to the fact that his NFL career is contingent upon him staying away from those things. Browns WR Hawk on Gordon: Josh has a ton of talent and is still young but he needs to make better decisions in life and turn it around. Hawkins may very well have Gordon's back, but his constant mistakes have to wear on his supporters and cause them to wonder if his talent is worth the distractions.
When Gordon is committed and on the field, there is no question that he is one of the best wideouts in football. That much was obvious in when he caught 87 passes for 1, yards and nine touchdowns en route to an All-Pro selection. The Browns eventually have to move on in order to move forward, though, and the time to do that is now.
Josh Gordon's one year suspension not only effectively ends Browns career, it makes it exceedingly unlikely he ever plays in NFL again. While the notion that Gordon does or doesn't deserve another chance in the league is certainly debatable, it seems likely that someone will take a chance on the skilled receiver when he is reinstated Add to Basket.
