Browns receiver Josh Gordon believes that this time he's back to stay.
The oft-suspended former Pro Bowler recently returned to the team after stepping away for three weeks to get mental health counseling, the newest interruption in a career that has had numerous stops and starts.
The 27-year-old spoke Monday after practice for the first time since he came back and said he's focused on the upcoming season and helping the Browns win.
Gordon has been limited by a hamstring issue since returning, but he's confident he'll be ready for the Sept. 9 season opener against Pittsburgh.
He's grateful for the support he's received from the Browns organization and his teammates. Gordon said the only way to win back the trust of the Browns and coach Hue Jackson is "walk it out and live out those actions on a daily basis. I can't make anybody feel any type of way about me."
