Some backstory: Michael Irvin, former Miami Hurricane legend and ESPN NFL analyst, is tight with Cleveland Browns receiver Josh Gordon. The young wideout has had a history of substance abuse troubles with marijuana, and he's facing a potential yearlong ban for multiple failed tests.
Cris Carter, a former Minnesota Vikings receiver and current ESPN NFL analyst -- and Boca Raton resident -- was quoted by the Cleveland Plain-Dealer saying the Browns should cut Gordon. Carter had his own past with cocaine, marijuana, and ecstasy and was cut by the Philadelphia Eagles in 1990 before finding the right path and becoming a star. He thought it would help Gordon to go through the same thing. Irvin does not.
