ESPN analyst Cris Carter, who overcame drug addiction during his Hall of Fame career, suggested the Browns should release WR Josh Gordon to give him the shock he needs to turn his behavior around, Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com reports.
“We’re dealing with addiction,” Carter said on ESPN’s ‘Mike & Mike in the Morning’ . “If Josh had cancer, we’d put him in a treatment center, and right now that’s what we need to do for him.
“But nobody wants to do the hard thing. Everyone wants to keep coddling him the same way they did in high school, the same way they did in Baylor, where he had problems. And eventually it’s going to blow up, and now it’s been blown up in front of the National Football League and his career is in jeopardy.”
Carter speaks from experience. He was released by the Philadelphia Eagles which finally made him realize he needed to get clean.
