Josh Gordon says he definitely doesn't have a drug problem

Suspended Cleveland Browns star wide receiver Josh Gordon says he doesn't have a drug problem.

That's a point Cris Carter disagrees with, but Gordon is sticking to his guns.

"Definitely not," Gordon told Cleveland reporters. "In this case I was exposed to it from second-hand and prior to I've been drug-free and been staying that way. This incident has been causing a backlash of negative attention and negative media of me being an addict or junkie or using drugs terribly too much, which is definitely not the case."

Gordon has failed drug tests in the past for marijuana and codeine and been arrested for driving under the influence. He has also gone to a rehab facility before in Malibu.

"I chose to go on my own accord and thought it would be beneficial for me to seek out some help and see what could be done," Gordon said. "They assessed me and they made their diagnosis and said I wasn't addicted to anything and said I really didn't have any drug problem."
