Cleveland Browns Wide Receiver Josh Gordon has written a letter to Charles Barkley & Company admitting he has a problem, according to medium.com.
Gordon’s letter posted to medium.com states “Yes, I have a ‘problem,’ but it’s not the one all of you seem to think it is.”
In the letter, Gordon calls out a few commentators who have made judgments about his behavior.
Again, I make no excuses for my past. That culture didn’t make me do anything I didn’t want to do, but when you judge me without actually knowing me, you deny the existence of the world I come from.
Gordon explains in the letter what ‘world’ he speaks of — one with a father that was out of the picture, a single mother with three sons, a life of poverty, and large stretches of his adolescence where he had to fend for himself.
