Suspended Josh Gordon says he's moving on, indicates no plans to sue

Now that he's lost his appeal and is suspended for a year for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy, Clevleand Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon said he has no plans to sue.

"The whole being in limbo thing, I'm over it," Gordon told ESPN. "I'm not waiting on the edge of my seat anymore."

Gordon discussed the two weeks he spent in a rehab facility in California, but doesn't consider himself an addict.

"Just to see," Gordon said when asked why he went to rehab. "To seek out some help on decision-making. Not drug use or drug abuse, but decision-making. Life skills. How to be your own person and stuff like that."

Gordon is working for a local car dealership.

"People probably expect me to be hidden in a dark room somewhere, going crazy and never coming out," Gordon said. "That's definitely not going to happen. That's just not me. I plan to spend it staying busy, that's for sure. Staying positive and surrounding myself with positive, good people who are only here to support me. Nothing to tear me down negatively. Just carry on about life. There's definitely life outside of football."
