According to Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden, teammates had no idea that troubled receiver Josh Gordon was prohibited from drinking alcohol as a condition of his return to the NFL.
They apparently found that little detail out after a flight to Las Vegas after the regular season ended, where several teammates enjoyed drinks with Gordon, who knew full well is was a no no.
As soon as the plane landed, a league official was there to test Gordon. The result? Suspended for the 2015 season…
“If I knew he couldn’t have a drink, everybody would have tried to … you know what I’m saying … it wouldn’t have been that,” Haden said after Tuesday’s OTA practice, per ESPN. “Josh Gordon, he’s a grown man and sometimes you got to know what decisions you make.”
