They tested him for something that's legal?

Yes because he has a prior DUI.

Re: Josh Gordon Fail!

I think the whole thing is really sad. The guy is super talented but just seems to have way bigger problems than worrying about playing in the NFL right now. If you have a job that pays million for a short period of time and it requires you to stay sober and stay off drugs and you can't do that you got bigger issues than football.

For alcohol? I thought they only tested for illegal substances ... I guess they're serious, .

It's almost inconceivable that Gordon would put himself in this position, after having a season-long suspension for a drug test lessened to 10 games last season. After Gordon came back, he was suspended for the season finale for skipping a walk-through practice. That 10-game suspension last year was the result of Gordon's fourth violation of the league's drug policy, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported at the time ...

You're right. It really is sad. People will call him stupid. I won't be one of those people. Disappointing and sad is what comes to mind.

Well to call him stupid would be the easiest thing to do. Potentially wasting millions are per definition stupid. Combine all the stuff you read about Josh Gordon thou and he comes across as an addict or at least as somebody with symptoms very close to addiction. Might be other mental issues etc. Its quite clear that he needs professional help and I hope he gets it.
