Gordon: I Never Failed a Third Drug Test at Utah

Despite a report to the contrary, Browns rookie receiver Josh Gordon told Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Thursday that he never failed a third drug test at Utah.

Gordon admitted to The Plain Dealer that he failed two tests for marijuana at Baylor, one in October of 2010 a day after falling asleep in the drive-through of a Taco Bell with a teammate and one in June of 2011 after he returned from summer break. He said the second failed drug test was the last straw for Baylor and they suspended him indefinitely in July 11. He then transferred to Utah.

Albert Breer of NFL.com reported Friday that according to four NFL clubs, Gordon, 21, failed a third test at Utah, where he practiced with the team but wasn’t permitted to play because of NCAA transfer rules.

“The whole time I was in Utah, I never ended up testing positive for any administrative test given by the administrative people there,” Gordon said Thursday. “It was just their choice to test me and just make sure I was staying clean.”

    If (many) journalists used a shred of intelligence, this wouldn’t have even needed to be written. My apologies for lumping all together, so I added ‘many’ for plausible deny-ability.

    It’s hard to believe that some writer would assume a guy failed every drug test just because the writer saw:

    1) Failed drug tests
    2) Took three tests

    So, logically, he must have failed all three. It’s a painful reminder of the death of journalism. Check out the Drudge report and see another journalist that immediately linked two people with the same name to the tea party and mass murder.
