After many years of trouble and setbacks, Cleveland Browns fans and general NFL fans will be glad to hear wide receiver Josh Gordon is doing something positive in his life in order to help himself, before hopefully coming back to the game he loves the most.

The 25-year-old announced yesterday that he has decided to enter himself into an in-patient rehabilitation facility, stepping away from the field for the time being until further notice.

In a statement via the Browns' Twitter account, the wideout said that he believed this was the right decision for him because he hopes it will allow him to gain full control of his life and keep him on the path towards reaching his full potential.

Gordon was scheduled to play his first regular season game this year against the New England Patriots, as he was suspended for the first four games of the season. This would have been his first game since December 2014 due to suspensions as well.

However, his return to the field in a Browns uniform has now been put on hold so that he can improve his health, which is a good thing. Some though are finding it hard to believe the wide receiver will play for Cleveland after all that has happened during his time with the team over the past couple of years.

Hopefully, Gordon is able to recover and get back on the Browns roster. While some might doubt he'll play for the team again, he should be on another team for sure. He was the NFL receiving yards leader in 2013 and he only played 14 games that season, so he can't be bypassed on.

Fingers crossed his rehab allows his to recover and return to this type of production every season, putting him back on track to reaching his full potential.
