Josh Gordon wants ‘full control of my life,’ will enter rehab

Embattled Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was scheduled to make his return from suspension in Week 5 against New England, but that looks like it put on hold for a little unfinished personal business.

Gordon, in a sign of either desperation or maturity, has decided to enter rehab after much consideration.

“After careful thought and deep consideration I’ve decided that I need to step away from pursuing my return to the Browns and my football career to enter an in-patient rehabilitation facility,” Gordon wrote in a post from the team on Twitter.

“This is the right decision for me and one that I hope will enable me to gain full control of my life and continue on a path to reach my full potential as a person. I appreciate the support of the NFL, NFLPA, the Browns, my teammates, my agent and the community through this extremely challenging process.”
